Born on Feb 11, 1906 in North Dakota, Mr Heitman was not originally named Ted. He was given three other names by a family name selection committee, but legally changed his name to Ted later in life. Raised in South Dakota, he graduated from eighth grade and went to work driving truck, which, his wife says, was the beginning of his love for the automobile and anything else mechanical.  After marrying Dort and beginning their family, which included daughter, Shirley, Mr Heitman was employed as an experienced mechanic with a healthy supply of customers. However, due to the depression, cash flow was short and the Heitman’s moved to the Inland Northwest. After working in the woods and trying his had in a few different trades, Mr Heitman settled in Davenport where he went to work at the Ford garage.  He and Ken Huffman opened up Ken and Ted’s Pontiac and later, Mr Heitman worked for a cement company as their truck maintenance mechanic. Interested in anything mechanical, Mr Heitman was also adept at welding, woodworking and small engine repair.  Friends and family say Mr Heitman fell in love with any new invention that came along and took correspondence courses to learn to fix radios and televisions. He constructed a boat, flew airplanes and, according to Dort, even talked about overhauling engines in his sleep. He was the proud inventor of a cross between a bike and a car that friends joke the county still doesn’t know how to license.  A trip to the family home was all visitors needed to know how talented Mr Heitman was. He built a typical playground for his three grandsons, but also threw in a few carnival-type rides such as airplanes and go-carts. Rumor had it a train ride around the family property was next on Mr Heitman’s list of accomplishments.  A valued citizen, Mr Heitman was a volunteer fireman in Davenport, served a term on the school board and was a member of the Davenport-Edwall United Methodist Church for over 50 years.  Other survivors of Mr Heitman include daughter Shirley Powers of Sumner, WA; three grandsons and 7 great grandchildren; two sisters, Hazel Morthland of Deadwood, SD and Adelaide Snyder of Rapid City, SD; numerous nieces and nephews.” (Davenport Times: 1-08-1998)
