Jary W. Heinemann Tue, 21 Oct 2014 22:19:40 +0000 Jary   W.  Heinemann

Jary Heinemann, age 77 of Elk River, was born on Sept. 23, 1937 at Fairview Hospital in Minneapolis to Bill and Grayce Heinemann. He grew up in north Minneapolis, where as a young boy he enjoyed terrorizing his neighborhood and his sister Gail with his mischievous ways, becoming well-known in the neighborhood but for the wrong reason! On his better-mannered days, Jary was fond of playing baseball and other sports on Victory Memorial Drive. He attended Loring Grade School and graduated from Patrick Henry High School in 1955.
After high school, Jary enlisted and proudly served in the U.S. Marine Corps. The best thing about the Marines? You dont need to be smart to be a Marine, you just need to be good-looking.
After the Marines, Jary returned to Minnesota where he worked for many years in the electrical industry. Jary married Kay Spencer in 1962, and in 1971 they moved their young family to his beloved Elk Lake near Princeton. The Heinemann land on Elk Lake had been purchased by Jarys parents and grandparents in 1930. During Jarys early childhood it became his favorite place on earth, and it remained so through the rest of his life.
Jary had many hobbies, including boating, camping and reading. And even into his 70s, Jary could still find time on most days to play with his cherished toy trains. He helped start the youth hockey program in Princeton and spent many years volunteering as a hockey coach. But Jarys favorite hobby was to reminisce and tell stories with family and good friends. He relished his role as unofficial historian of Elk Lake and Minneapolis north side.
Jary died peacefully on October 15, 2014. On his last day he had coffee with his buddies at Coborns, lunch with more friends at The Eatery and dinner with his wife Kay – a perfect Jary day!
He was preceded in death by his parents and grandson Jaden Heinemann.
He is survived by his loving wife Kay; children Doug, Beth and Jeff; grandchildren Brien, Cody, Cole and Grace; sister Gail Belvedere; daughter-in-law Julie and son-in-law Howard Root, in addition to many relatives and good friends.
Services have been completed. Arrangements by Dares Funeral Home in Elk River.
