Obituary of Robert Adam Heaney, Sr.

Robert Adam Heaney Sr., a resident of Woodbury Heights, New Jersey, passed away on Wednesday, April 17, 2019.  He was 44.



Known as Adam by his family and Rob by his friends and colleagues, Rob loved life and always brought a smile to the people around him. Whether it was a quick snarky joke or one of his famous little dance jigs, his energy and upbeat attitude was warming to say the least. In his youth, Rob was a competitive cross-country runner at Washington Township High School. Post high school Rob followed his passion to "fix" things and became a mechanic, most recently working for the Raymond Company. He loved his Philly sports, especially those Super Bowl Champion Eagles. Rob was always busy fixing cars, tinkering with his tools, but always put his family first. He was generous with his time, his craft but most importantly his heart. His selflessness and love will be what is remembered most.



He is the beloved husband of Erin P. (nee Briant); devoted father of Isabella and Robert, Jr.; his dog Bongo; dear son of Robert F. and Joanne C. (nee Simpson); loving brother of Dawn, Scott, & Traci and many nieces, nephews and cousins.  Devoted grandson of Joan Simpson, and the late Grandparents, Robert Fredrick, Sr., Margaretta Heaney, and Charles and Dorothy Bastian.
