O B I T U A R Y
Robert David Heiskell, Sr.

Robert David Heiskell, Sr., of Bardstown, Kentucky, formerly of Greensburg.
Robert, known as Bobby to his family and friends, peacefully slipped away Sunday evening in his sleep. Robert was born August 1, 1934 in Louisville, Kentucky to the late Benjamin "Boss" Olen Heiskell and Lucy Lenora (Lane) Heiskell; he was the tenth of eleven children. He was 85 years, two months, and 20 days of age.
Robert was a gentle man of few words and a comforting spirit to all he met. He spent four years in the US Army before beginning his career as an aerospace machinist at Philip Morris Tobacco Corporation where he stayed for 34 years and all while building his farms and raising a family. Robert was always involved in agricultural endeavors and spent many peaceful hours on the family farms in Green County. He was a member of Louisville Separate Baptist Church then Faith Separate Baptist Church where he served for 25 years as a trustee and deacon until his health made it no longer possible. Like his father, he was a rifle enthusiast and interested in the art of making knives. Robert had a passion for the great outdoors and hunting with beagle hounds but his greatest love was his wife and family.
Survived by his wife of 66 years, Barbara Ann (Madison) Heiskell having united in marriage on July 3, 1953 in New Albany, Indiana. To this union were born two sons: Robert David Heiskell, Jr and his wife, Karen and Philip R. Heiskell and his wife, Tena; four grandchildren: Tiffani Heiskell, Shelby Heiskell, Madison Heiskell, and Robert David "Trey" Heiskell III; three great-grandchildren: Carson, Ainsley, and Aubrey; and many nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends.
