William Heilig Jr. and Family
I was born in Kimball and lived
the first 3 years of my life there before
moving to Michigan where I have been (with short side trips to other places) since.
I have been married for 18 years to Christine (Chris), who I have known since we
were in our early teens.
We have 5 daughters, Sandra (29), Samantha (26), Sabrina (21),
Stephanie (17), and Stacey (13). We also have two granddaughters,
Jasmine (8) is Sandy's daughter and Rea'Ann (3) is Sabrina's daughter.
We live just
outside Saginaw, Michigan in a town called Bridgeport. We were
to find a nice home a few years ago, set on almost 9 acres. Plenty of room to grow apples,
grapes, raspberries, pears, mulberries, strawberries and a big garden.
I worked in
Computer Operations for Dow Corning Corp. in Midland, Michigan for 9 years.
I have since returned to chemistry as a research and development technician.
Previous to that, I worked as a Quality Chemist in
the Urethane Additives division for 16 years. I have also been a photographer,
a draftsman in high rise construction,
played in a number of bands, a department manager in retail.
I also build and maintain web pages for a number of small businesses and individuals.
Chris works for
the Bridgeport Police department. No... she is not a cop!!
She is a crossing guard She is also accomplished at craft making.
currently working at Superior Data Corp.
Samantha and Sabrina also work at the same company. Sabrina's biggest job is chasing after
her daughter, Rea'Ann who started Head Start at age 3 because she could not wait to go to school.
Stephanie and Stacey are in high school (Bridgeport H.S.) and both are dancers. Stephanie has won
ten national dance titles in tap and teaches part time in the studio that they both attend.
Stacey has won seven national dance titles in competitive dance.
They have done well again this year in regional competitions, earning numerous High Gold and
platinum awards for outstanding performances, along with a number of special judges awards.
