After an 8-year battle with Alzheimer’s, Carl A. Heath went home to heaven. He was born in Twisp on Feb. 20, 1935, to Willis and Ella Heath, the seventh of 10 children. He graduated from Twisp High School and enjoyed playing sports. After graduation, he was drafted into the Army, where he served for three years. Shortly after returning home, he met and married the love of his life, Di Ann, and they soon started their family.
Carl was a very loving, devoted husband and father. He was quite active in his children’s lives, coaching sports and being a scout leader. He was also a very loving and playful grandfather and great-grandfather. He took great pleasure being involved in his church.
Carl is survived by Di Ann, his wife of 61 years; children Tim (Vicki); daughters Shari (Rick) and Rosie; grandchildren Steve (partner Lindsey), Lisha, Tara Michelle (Mike), and Kyle (Brittney); great- grandchildren Lilly, Mason, Jayden, Genevieve, Jackson, Brianna, Hayleigh, Brooklyn, Christy, Dev, Tifiney, Daniel and Jonathan; Great great grandchildren Wyatt, Ryan, Sam and Brin.
