John Casper "J.C." Heyer



John Casper "J.C." Heyer, 81, of Rose Hill left this earthly life for his eternal rest on Friday, November 17, 2017.

He was born on June 3, 1936 in Duplin County, NC and was the only son of the late John Edward and Lena Kilpatrick Heyer. He was also predeceased by his sister, Betty H. Greenway.

Mr. Heyer served his country honorable in the US Air Force and was a member of Mt. Zion Presbyterian Church.

Surviving to cherish his memory is his devoted wife of 51 years, Ruby Rogers Heyer of the home; step children, Eugene Baker (Linda Kraulik) of Rose Hill, Keith Baker of Tallahassee, Florida and Bobby Baker (Teresa) of Thonotosassa, Florida; several step grandchildren and great grandchildren; sisters, Margaret Torrans of Rose Hill, Frances Bostic (Milton) of Fayetteville and Barbara Eason of Maury and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family that loved J.C. dearly.

J.C. was a good husband and caring step father and brother who loved his family. He worked at J.P. Stevens until it closed and he retired. He was a simple man who grew up knowing how to work hard to provide for his family. Being an outdoorsman J.C. loved working outside in the blueberry fields. He was kind but a determined man who knew what he wanted and didn't want. J.C. will surely be missed but treasured memories will forever remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.

At J.C.'s request, there are no services planned at this time.
