Born November 11, 1942, in Chili, Indiana, he was the son of Eddie E. and Lorraine P. Robidoux Heckathorn.  On December 9, 1963, he was married to the former Shirley M. Morris, who survives.

Mr. Heckathorn was a logger all of his life and loved to tell stories of the woods he harvested.  He was an avid horse puller and loved to coon hunt.  If you spent anytime at all with Phil, he would love to tell you the stories of all the adventures he had with his sons.

Along with his wife, Shirley Heckathorn, he is survived by three sons, Dean Heckathorn and wife Karla; Keith Heckathorn and wife Janita; and Joe Heckathorn and wife Michelle; four brothers, Milton Heckathorn, John Heckathorn, Hank Heckathorn, and Nate Heckathorn; five sisters, Jane Cunningham, Alberta Scofield, Martha Day, Charity Barnhill, and Laura Bretzman, and a half-sister, Faith.  He is also survived by nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents, one son, Phillip Arthur Heckathorn, Jr., and three half-brothers, Charles, Lowell, and Norman Scott.

A time of visitation will be from 3-7:00 p.m. on Friday, February 10, 2017, at McClain Funeral Home, Denver.
