 Mr. Heath was born in Stafford Springs, CT to the late Frederick Lewis and Marion Emma Cooley Heath. He proudly served his country in the US Army/Air Force. After retirement, in 1990, he successfully completed the title of Appalachian Trail Thru Hiker, 2152 miles in 176 days. He proudly volunteered at the Cherokee Co. Historical Museum in Murphy, NC. It was his love for history that caused him to donate his time, artifacts, arrowheads and much more to the museum. He was always giving to someone else, unselfishly. Mr. Fred was a proud cancer survivor of more than 25 years. He was an accomplished Trap and Skeet Shooter. On one occasion, he shot in competition against Roy Rogers and won with a perfect 100. Roy finished with 99. He often spoke of this accomplishment with a great big smile.
