Terry Lange Heemann, age 74, died peacefully at his home on Oct. 21, 2014.
Born July 24, 1940 in Baltimore to the late Paul and Loretta Heemann, he graduated high school from Baltimore City College and attended University of Maryland.
During his time at College Park, he was a proud member of the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity and shared many fun stories of his time in the fraternity house.
Terry met the love of his life, Barbara Ann Farmer, in Baltimore in 1972 and they got married after dating for just three amazing months. Shortly after marrying in Baltimore on May 27, they moved to Ocean City where Terry was instrumental in developing the English Towers high rise on 100th Street.
After the completion of the English Towers, Terry started his long career in the insurance industry and became the owner of Shore Insurance.
While taking care of the commercial insurance needs of Ocean City, you could always find Terry on most days early in the morning having breakfast with Gus at General’s Kitchen or sitting at the counter of Beach Eats enjoying lunch with Gabby. He took immense pride in helping many business owners in Ocean City until his retirement in 2010 as an employee of Atlantic/Smith, Cropper & Deeley. In the late 1970s, Terry was also the co-owner of the Dogpatch which went on to become Trader Lee’s.
Terry will be especially remembered for his attention to detail, which you could clearly see everyday as he would always be dressed impeccably and his co-workers will always remember his beautiful penmanship. He took that same attention to detail at his home, where he and his wife took great joy in working together in their yard.
Terry was preceded in death by his loving wife, Ann, in the spring of this year. He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Tiffanie and Stevie Adkins, of Ocean City and his grandson, Jack Adkins. He is also survived by his brother, Warren Heemann of Atlanta.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that memorial donations be made out to Coastal Hospice at the Ocean, P.O. Box 1733, Salisbury, Md. 21802.
We would like to thank the amazing team at Coastal Hospice for the wonderful care they provided Terry and Ann over that past several months.
A memorial service will be held at a later date to celebrate the wonderful lives of both Terry and Ann Heemann.
