Ryan Oliver Heffner
Oct. 28, 1970 Nov. 26, 2014

Ryan-Oliver-HeffnerRyan Oliver Heffner, 44, entered heaven’s gates on November 26, 2014. He was born on October 28, 1970, and grew up in Oconomowoc.

He is survived by his loving wife of 11 years, Barbara; their two children, Sara (10) and Will (4); his parents, Allen and Diana Heffner; and his sister, Annie Nowak. He is further survived by many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

Ryan was a dedicated father, husband and son. He will always be remembered for his kind and caring heart and quick witted humor. Ryan enjoyed working with his fourth- and fifth-grade students over the last two decades and he made learning fun! Ryan had a true passion for playing his guitar and he’s surely rockin’ out with his new band in heaven and eating chicken wings every night!

Ryan will be deeply missed by his family, his friends, his students and all whose lives he has touched over the years.

Services were Tuesday, December 2, at Pagenkopf Funeral Home in Oconomowoc.

In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to the education fund that has been established for Sara and Will. Checks can be made out to “The Ryan Heffner Fund” at Brewery Credit Union, 1351 N. Martin Luther King Drive, Milwaukee, WI 53212.
