ROUND ROCK, TEXAS
Christopher Terry Heale
Dec. 7, 1953 — June 8, 2015
Christopher Terry Heale was called home Monday, June 8, 2015. Chris was born Dec. 7, 1953 in Waukesha. He graduated from Waukesha High School in 1972, Casper College in 1974, and the University of South Florida in 1976. He married his best friend, Judith Ann Orgas, on Nov. 6, 1982.
Chris will always be remembered for his ability to make friends everywhere he went. He enjoyed Wisconsin Badgers football and basketball, Marquette Golden Eagles basketball, University of Texas football and both men’s and women’s basketball, the Milwaukee Brewers, Missouri Valley Vikings football, and the Green Bay Packers. Spending time with family and friends over a game gave Chris a smile as big as Texas. Chris believed his greatest accomplishment was his children. He was a proud father, active in all his children’s activities. He volunteered with the Austin Striders, the Round Rock Soccer Association, Round Rock High School athletics, Round Rock Crossfire and others. He was commonly known as the “Gatorade Man.” Chris loved to remind us he attended the Ice Bowl in 1967 at Lambeau Field. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
Chris is survived by his mother, Dorothy Heale; wife, Judith Heale; four children: Emily Hughes and her husband Adam, Amanda Heale and her boyfriend Scott Saavedra, Christopher Heale II and his girlfriend Cassandra Faithful, and Sarah Heale; sisters, Debbie Heale, Cheryl Heale, and Penny Kendall; and brothers, Steve Heale, and David Heale, and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his father, Hubert (“Hoopie”) Heale, and his sister Mary Heale.
