I worked with Freddie for many years, I’m so shocked and sad to hear the news :/ thinking of his family!

I worked with Freddie 7 years at Heitmann and Associates. In those years we all drew close together. We always got work done first but we’d also do other things.( go out to eat, go get our sweets whether it was cupcakes or ice creams) He was a wonderful person and boss. I will miss him so very much.

I have known Freddie for over 40 years and went to middle and high school with him. He was always a very kind, pleasant guy with a great sense of humor. 52 is way too young to lose anyone! May his memory be a blessing. He will be missed. BC class of '89.

The BC Trinity of Steve Camp, Jr, Freddie Heitman and Michael J. Street lived at our place through the BC years and into college. These young men were fun loving, enjoyed each other’s company. This hurts. What was amazing is these guys could go months without seeing or talking to each other and pick right up when they ran into each other. There will be a void. May the perpetual light shine upon Freddie.

I went to BC with Freddie. We were in ROTC together. Freddie always had a joke or stupid comment to keep us laughing.

RIP Freddie. You were a good friend and always fun to be around. I wish you nothing but peace.

I graduated BC with Freddie, and although I only saw him at reunions and a few other occasions after that, we were able to pick up where we left off like the others said. A kind, thoughtful person who could always make everyone laugh. You will be missed. G-d bless

We had so many good laughs over the years. Many of them on the golf course. Boom Boom, you were one of kind and will be missed. Rest in peace my friend.
