Richard Lee Heckadon Sr

Rich Hill


Richard “Rick” Lee Heckadon, Sr. was born on November 2, 1955 in Butler, Missouri to Ellsworth and Betty (Dowen) Heckadon. Rick left this life on September 27, 2023 at 12:40 a.m. at his home. He was 67 years old.

Rick was a jack of all trades. Most of his life he drove a truck, worked as a mechanic, was a construction worker, and a carpenter. Rick loved hunting and fishing and playing pool; his favorite pastime was hanging out and playing with the grandkids. Most of all, Rick was a son, husband, brother, dad, uncle, “Popo”, great-grandpa, and friend.

Rick is survived by his wife of 46 years, Mae (Phelps) Heckadon of the home; four children, Richard (Rachel) Heckadon Jr. of Excelsior Springs, Missouri, Bethie Jo (Mike) Gardner of Rich Hill, Missouri, Ellsworth Heckadon of Rich Hill, Missouri, Candie (Daniel) Bledsoe of Falls City, Nebraska; and his seven siblings; nine grandkids, Sebastian and Noah Gardner of Harrisonville, Missouri, Taylor Heckadon of Excelsior Springs, Missouri, Nuria (Jillian) Slama of Humboldt, Nebraska; Dwight and Aiyana Bledsoe of Falls City, Nebraska, Haylee, Haven, and Holly Heckadon of Rich Hill, Missouri; and many nieces and nephews.

Rick is preceded in death by his parents, Ellsworth and Betty Heckadon; two siblings, Barbara Jean and Michael David; and one nephew, Kendall Heckadon; and many friends.

A family gathering will be announced at a later date.
