Good ol' Heavy will surely be missed by many. He certainly had the gift of gab. I've had many conversations with the man over the years when he was a neighbor in the apartment building I used to live. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the family.

Heavy and Linda were our neighbors for several years. We have a close-knit neighborhood, and visited "over the fence," often. Rest in Peace, Heavy!

I had the pleasure of working with "Heavy" back in the early 80's of the oil boom in Williston. He was one of our Hot Shot drivers. He always made time for a cup of coffee & to visit when he came in the office at Christensen Downhole Tools. I remember "Heavy" fondly. Prayers to his family.
