Doting grandfather to Blair (Rachel) Bennett, Dominik, Christopher, Alex, Nicholas, Josh, Lilly, Jessica Nethery, Kasey, Amber, Nicole and Tyler.
Great grandpa to Penny and Evie.
Missed by many nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws, neighbours and friends.
Hebo has always been an invested dairy farmer, from being on the board at Gaylea to trucking dairy products, helping with 4-H, to owning his own dairy farm for 60 years. He was always willing to help out any club in the community especially if his kids were involved. He loved to visit his family and celebrate milestones but not until all the chores had been done.
He played broomball with the 3rd line and loved to go snowmobiling with the Blyth Snow Travelers. He loved to hunt with the gang and to share his knowledge of hunting. He had many hunting dogs and used to snowshoe into the bush just to get a good shot.
A man who contributed much to this world with his farming, his friendship, his neighbourly ways and his love of a good conversation and an easy smile.
