Robert Charles "Bob" Heppner, 64 of Clawson, passed away on January 27, 2017. Born on October 19, 1952 in Bad Axe, Michigan to Clyde and Norma Heppner. Mr. Heppner is survived by children, James and Joel; siblings, Ronald, Joseph (Kristi), Kenneth, Gayle and Debra (Jack) Brenner; ex-wife, Janet Diebel; ex-brother-in-law, Mark Bokas, Douglas (Kathy Fazio) Diebel and Robert (Kim) Diebel; ex-mother-in-law, Wilda Diebel; many nieces and nephews and best friends, Dan McGuire, Dan Tanner, Rick Kirkwood, Brian Evans and Mark Gillis. He is predeceased by his parents, Clyde and Norma; sister, Dawn; as well as Joe and Shane Dillon and great friends  Larry "Smitty" Smith and Butch O'Dell.

Mr. Heppner absolutely loved baseball as a kid, and never went anywhere without his ball and mitt. He loved apples and used to sit up in the neighbors apple tree with a salt shaker until she shooed him down. He was a ping pong master and he pretty much had the run of the shuffleboard table at Ted's. Bob's passions were his sons, fishing and golfing. He had a smile and dimples that would light up a room. He was also known with much affection as "Charley","Charley Bob" and "Hep".

The staff and facilities at Gramer were absolutely the best. Their heartfelt compassion & dedication were obvious. We couldn’t have asked for better care than we received. Brooke even had her wedding the day after Dad’s funeral and the service still went perfectly. We highly recommend Gramer.
