Heckl -- Tyler J. Heckl, age 12, passed away unexpectedly on October 10, 2001. Tyler was born happy and spent every moment of his 12 years smiling. He was, as his best friend Luke says,"the definition of philosophy", a true thinker and an old soul who never had a bad day. His laugh, a deep hearty chorus, was one of his most distinct qualities, and will be heard by his loved ones forever. Survivors include his parents, Dr. Frank and Dr. Vicki Heckl of Corrales, NM; sisters, Emily Heckl and Allison Heckl, both of Corrales, NM; maternal grandfather, Dr. Vernon Perrigo of Edina, MN; paternal grandfather, Frank Heckl of Post Falls, ID; aunts, Yvonne Mendleson of Pennsylvania and Laura Richmond of Novato, CA; uncle, Mark Heckl of LaMesa, CA and cousins, Altie, Andy, Holly, Zach, Steven, Kayla, Matt and Alissa. Music was a big part of Tyler's life. He once performed with the Santa Fe Opera, and especially loved singing in the chorus at Manzano Day School and Albuquerque Academy. He wanted to be a piano man like Billy Joel. Together with his family, he shared a passion for sports, playing soccer, basketball, baseball, swimming, tennis, and was particularly enjoying being on the 7th/8th grade football team at Albuquerque Academy with his great friends Charlie and Evan. Tyler also had a natural golf swing and was his parents' favorite golfing partner. Tyler loved nature, especially the bosque surrounding his home. His favorite place to be, away from home, was enveloped in the waves at any beach from La Jolla to Kona. When Ty came home from school, you could find him playing Nintendo, with Boo on his lap, Risa at his side, and Benji at his feet. On weekends, he loved to have his best friends over to play "Worms Armageddon" and basketball and to eat Village pizza and Grandpa's pancakes. He loved being with his friends. Tyler will be remembered by everyone he ever met, a list too numerous to mention or to thank. He gave his heart and soul in everything he did and to everyone he knew. We think Tyler had an extraordinary impact on the people in his life. He made us all smarter, stronger and better. From now on, we will try to live our lives the way we know he would have lived his - embracing every second of every day, and giving love to everyone and everything. He was "the one." A Time of Remembrance will be held from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Saturday, October 13, 2001 at Sandia Funeral Care, 7601 Wyoming Blvd NE. Memorial Services are scheduled for 1:00 p.m. Sunday at Simms Auditorium on the campus of Albuquerque Academy, 6400 Wyoming Blvd NE with Pastor John Thurmond officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to the Animal Humane Society. Arrangements by Sandia Funeral Care, 7601 Wyoming Blvd NE 821-0010.
