John Blackwood Heath

73, of Crown Point, passed away at home, Monday, July 1, 2019, surrounded by his family.  He is survived by his wife, Diana; son, John (Nicola); grandchildren, Olivia, Jacob and Ryan; sisters in law, Darlene Sund, Anita Heath; sister, Sue (Joe) Serio; and many nieces and nephews.   He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Marion and brother, David.  John was raised in Lake Dalecarlia, and was a 1965 graduate of Lowell High School.  He then joined the Navy, serving on the U.S.S. Canopus.  He then went to work with Bell Telephone Co., retiring from AT&T after 30 years of service.  His passions included hunting woodcock, grouse, quail and ducks.  He loved to chase his dogs afield, and was an avid fisherman.  John was a 32 degree Mason with Lowell’s Colfax Lodge, and a Founding and Committee member of Lowell Ducks Unlimited Chapter #62.  During his retirement, he and Diana were able to travel the world.  However, spending time with his grandchildren was his greatest joy.  Cremation through Sheets Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Lowell, will precede a Private Celebration of Life.  In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Indiana Ducks Unlimited, Lowell Chapter; 1753 West 172 Lane, Lowell Indiana 46356.
