He is survived by his wife of 62 plus years, Jeanne (Gain) Heald; children, Donna Ridley and her husband Gary of Littleton, N.H., Dennis Heald and his partner Cleto of Brooklyn, N.Y., Debra Aceto and her husband Ed of Portland, Diane Cassidy and her husband Tom of Littleton, N.H., and David Heald and his wife Wendy of East Conway, N.H.; brothers, Herman “Junior” Heald Jr. of Fryeburg, and Russell Heald of Santa Rosa, Calif.; grandchildren, Brian, Chantelle, T.C., and Marguerite; and several nieces and nephews.
