Norman Dale Heiskell, age 85, of Lockwood, MO, passed away at 10:55 am on Thursday, February 27. He was surrounded by his family when he left this earth to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Norman was born November 17, 1934, in Lockwood, MO, the youngest boy of 8 children born to Harold and Oma (Coble) Heiskell. He grew up on a farm in Lockwood, MO, with seven siblings. A lifelong resident of this area, he graduated from Lockwood High School on May 15, 1953. On May 27, 1956, Norman married Effie Mae Duncan, and they celebrated 60 years of marriage prior to Effie Mae’s homegoing in June 2016. Norman was a credentialed minister with the Assemblies of God and pastored churches in the Southwest MO, area for many years.

In addition to being a minister, husband, father, and grandfather, Norman was an avid fisherman and thoroughly enjoyed going to Truman Lake to fish with his brothers, Frank and Paul. He also enjoyed a variety of activities throughout his lifetime that included: operating heavy machinery (bulldozer), carpentry work, planting and working in his garden, listening to music, especially Southern Gospel and Bluegrass music. Norman never met a stranger, and he loved playing his fiddle (and occasionally bass fiddle) and “jammin” with other bluegrass musician friends.

Survivors include a son, Kevin Heiskell, Jerico Springs; four daughters, Geneva Heiskell, Springfield, Cindy Smith, Neosho, Janice (Randy) Frazier, Chetopa, KS, and Lisa Sikes, Neosho; a daughter-in-law, Paula Heiskell Forsythe, Jefferson City; two brothers, Paul (Helen) Heiskell, Neosho, and Frank (Frances) Heiskell, Lockwood; 13 grandchildren, Dustin (Chelsey) Heiskell, Charissa (Ryan) Lock, Aaron Heiskell, Zachary (Kaley) Smith, Gabrielle Smith, Drew (Ashley) Frazier, Marti Frazier, Faith Frazier, Silas Frazier, Olivia Frazier, Kyle (Tana) Sikes, Victoria (Colton) Benner, and Lacy Heiskell; and nine great-grandchildren, Braydon Smith, Aidan, Madalyn and Jude Frazier, Lane and Truman Lock, Hunter Heiskell, and Kaide and Kylan Sikes; as well as a multitude of extended family and friends.

Norman was preceded in death by his wife, Effie Mae Heiskell; his parents, Harold and Oma Heiskell; a son, Norman L. Heiskell; a granddaughter, Hannah Frazier; son-in-law, Paul Sikes; two brothers, Vernon and Eldon Heiskell; and three sisters, Betty Woods, Mary Orrell and Doris Daniel.

Uncle Norman was always taking an interest in everyone else as our family gatherings & seemed to sense when you were going through a difficult time without you saying a word. He could make you laugh & told stories of past memories. He always knew the right things to say. He will be missed as many in the family went to him for advice & comfort. He is reunited now with family.
