Heinemann age 84 of rural Wayne, NE will be held on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. at the First Trinity Lutheran Church-Altona with Pastor Timothy Booth officiating.

Harris passed away on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at Faith Regional Health Services in Norfolk, NE.

Harris Dewayne Heinemann was born on March 7, 1935 in Cuming County, Nebraska to Harry and Esther (Hansen) Heinemann. He was baptized in September of 1935 at the First Congregational Church in Wisner, NE and later confirmed at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Wayne, NE. Harris attended rural schools in Dodge, Saunders and Wayne Counties. He graduated from Wayne High School in 1952. Harris began farming at the age of 17, and served in the U.S. Navy from November of 1955 until he was honorably discharged in August of 1957.

On June 3, 1961, he was united in marriage to Clara Chambers at First Trinity Lutheran Church-Altona. The couple have lived on the same farm place since their marriage. Harris was engaged in farming, cattle feeding and was a fixture at the Norfolk Livestock Market for feeder calf sales. It can be said he was very detail orientated in all that he did.

Harris was a member of First Trinity Lutheran Church, where he served in numerous capacities. Harris and Clara enjoyed traveling the United States, whether it was attending his Boot Camp or Naval Ship reunions, viewing the Sandhill Cranes during migration, or all of their children’s, grandchildren’s, and great grandchildren’s activities, and day trips throughout the State of Nebraska in their later years. He also enjoyed Husker Football and attending the Spring Football games. He especially loved having “Grandpa Coffee” with the grandchildren.
