Bob Heebink, a resident of New Richmond and long time educator at the New Richmond High School, passed away on Feb. 23 at the age of 94.

“He was a teacher for many years, but he prefered the term educator,” said Heebink’s son James Heebink. “He was a somewhat formal person and he’ll be missed by a lot of people. He spent over 50 years in the New Richmond School District.”
