Robert "Bob" Heitman

Piermont - Former Piermont resident, actor Robert "Bob" Heitman, died in a hospital near his Florida retirement home. He was 83 and had suffered a stroke.

Bob and his wife, Marilyn, lived in Piermont for over 20 years; in a house that their friends will always call the Heitman house. Bob was active in the Piermont Civic Association, serving as its treasurer for many years. He cared deeply about the village, often visiting in the summer.

Born on January 26, 1936, in Queens, NY, he grew up on a farm in Middletown, NY. After graduating from Middletown High School, he headed off to MIT where he earned a BA in Civil Engineering.

Bob then joined the Army, spending four years in France. Discharged as a Captain, he worked with his father in the family contracting business. After seven years, he finally told his skeptical father that he was quitting to pursue his show business dreams.

Those dreams came true. For nearly 50 years, he worked on the stage, in commercials, films and television. He had a long run as Dr. Stan Clader in the soap opera, "All My Children." His deep baritone was his calling card, and almost everyone that knew him remembers him for his voice.

After retiring to Florida, Bob found a wonderful, supportive community in the theater of St. Petersburg. He spent many happy years working on local stages, especially at The Studio@620. It became his home away from home.

Bob was not only a marvelous actor, but a kind, loving and generous man. He lived his life as "an adventure," always seeking the next opportunity to experience life. He is survived by Marilyn, his wife of more than 55 years, four children, Debbie, Wendy, David and Paula; his sister Linda and brother Tom; five grandchildren: Mike, Matt, Renee, Sabrina and Cole.
