Died peacefully, in his sleep, on January 12, 2018. He is survived by his wife, Ann Polonus Heckel; a brother, Sam Heckel; many nieces and nephews, and countless friends. Roger retired from the Pittsburgh Board of Education where he was affectionately called "The Food Guy" by the kids at the schools he visited. He was a member and officer of Local 13 of ASCME. He was active in Brighton Heights Little League. The neighbors said he owned the street. He knew every dog and child's name. He will be missed. Visitation will be from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. at the Winter Funeral Home, PC, 4730 Friendship Ave., Bloomfield, on January 16, 2018. Services will be held at the funeral home at 10 a.m. on January 17, 2018, followed by burial at Allegheny County Memorial Park on Duncan Ave. In lieu of flowers, donations to the William Heckel Endowed Scholarship at Robert Morris University would be appreciated. A memorial service will be held at a later date. He loved all of you.
