Peter Heckmann (Jr) born in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany on September 13, 1945 lost his battle with pancreatic cancer on 1/11/2021 surrounded by his family. Peter spent his life as a hardworking family man that loved soccer, music, pool, and dancing with his wife of 54 years, Karin.
Peter and Karin immigrated to the United States in 1980 with their children Sabine (Liedel) and Dr. Sascha Heckmann where they built their American dream of home and business ownership.
Peter lived in California’s central Valley for three decades before retiring to Olympia, Washington in 2014 where he was active playing in pool tournaments and riding his horse Dolly. In 2020 he and Karin moved to Pennsylvania to live out their time near their daughter.
Peter is survived by his wife Karin, his daughter Sabine and husband Mark, his son Sascha and wife Nola, grandchildren Shawna, Shannon, Maggie, Sutton, David, Rachel, and Molli and great grandchildren Matthew, Ivy, Asher, Leighton, and Aiden.
Peter will always be remembered for his love of animals, a unique sense of humor, and the ability to fix just about anything. He was a good friend to many and loved his family deeply.
His family has asked that in lieu of flowers donations can be made to Lehigh Valley Hospice who’s staff assisted in his transition from this life with compassion and grace.
