Christopher Mark Heisig passed away at his home in Budoia, Italy on Saturday, April 27, 2019 at the age of 44. Chris was born in Arcadia, California on October 15, 1974. He graduated from Lakenheath High School in 1993 and furthered his education by earning both a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and a Master’s degree in Human Resources. He joined the United Stated Air Force and was honorably discharged after serving 8 years. He went on to work for the Defense Logistics Agency at Aviano Air Force Base, Italy.

Chris spent much of his time volunteering as a football coach at the high school where his sons played football. He also loved officiating intramural sports that were conducted on the Air Force bases where he and Andrea were stationed. Most of all, Chris made it a point to ensure he showed his love and support to his family, selflessly devoting himself to each of their needs. If somebody needed an ear to bend, Chris was there. If somebody needed advice, Chris stopped what he was doing to help that person. If somebody needed a shoulder to cry on, he was there for them and looked after them as if they were one of his own. He was always determined, never hesitant and never bashful about living his life.

Chris is survived by his loving wife Andrea of 11 years. They were married in Utah on April 15, 2008.

He is lovingly remembered by his wife, Andrea of Florida; his daughter, Elora; his sons, Brandon and Tony; his father, Pete; stepmother, Lynn; brothers, Michael, Daniel and Rick; and loving nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his mother, Marilyn Heisig, and grandparents Phil and Jane Heisig.

A visitation will be held at 4:30 pm, followed by a funeral service at 5:30 pm on Saturday, May 11, 2019 at Thompson Funeral Chapel, 926 S. Litchfield Rd., Goodyear, Arizona 85338. The family is encouraging anybody who has their “Chris moment” stories to share their story during the service.

7 Comments on “Christopher Mark Heisig

  1. I remember being down on myself for messing up plays and when I got to the sideline all he said to me was he believed in me and to proof everyone wrong because they were doubting me. He said he’d stick with me as long as I had his back. Next time I went on the field I caught an interception and all he did was point at me this is just an example of him never giving up on me and truly believing in me. He’d always take me home if i didn’t have a ride or take me to anywhere I needed. He was always there to help.

  2. Heaven gained a great angel. Rest easy coach, you will be missed

  3. Coach Heisig was an amazing man. He was like a father to me on and off the football field he encouraged me to work hard for my goals and to never give up on them. I hope that he knows I’m going to keep working and that I will bring home another banner for him.

  4. Rest In Peace Brother, you will be missed by all who’s loved you touch over the years.

    • I knew Chris while he was in the Air Force and had the honor to be a fellow 1C5 with him. He could always lighten the mood with his jokes and quick wit. He was always surrounded by friends and family. You will be deeply missed but never forgotten. To many of our 276/1C5s have gone. “Go Mobile TACS”.

      RIP bubba

  5. Coach Heisig always had our backs. He pushed us to do our best, but we wanted to do our best for him too. Next season is for him, we miss you Coach.

  6. I was a puny 6’2 Freshman starting at my new school, RAF Lakenheath, back in ’92. His father was my coach on the JV team so we did not really see each other. But when I did first see him he was trampling three guys from Alconbury as TE. First impressions, huh.
    God Bless You.
