HEILEMAN, Walter G, 77, of West Hartford, passed away peacefully at home on November 24, 2016. Born in Philadelphia, PA, he was the son of the late Ernst and Lena Heilemann. He was a proud U.S. Air Force veteran, graduate of Temple University Technical School and was employed with Univac, now Unisys, for 30 years. He loved life, traveling, his trains and his grandchildren. He leaves behind his wife and soul mate, Carolyn of 47 years and his four daughters and sons-in-law, Debbie and Natale Terranova, Jr., Kimberly and Erik Jensen, Nancy and Edward Young III, and Amy and Jay Ben-Kiki. "Opa" also leaves his nine grandchildren Ashley, Tyler and Michael Terranova, Ethan and Katelyn Jensen, Julia and Eddie Young, and Chase and Cooper Ben-Kiki. His motto was E=R (effort = results).

Services and burial at Hillside Cemetery, Roslyn, PA will be private. The family would like to thank the staff at the Conklin Building, Hughes Health Care, and Hartford Healthcare at Home Hospice for their loving care. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. For online condolences, please visit
