I have recently learned that Brad Heising (1943-2010) passed away last year in his beloved adopted home of New Zealand, succumbing to multiple myaloma for which he had been diagnosed several years earlier. When we last communicated by e-mail, he said that he had opted for alternative medical treatment. Brad, Frank McMillin and I were great friends back in the 1950's. We all went off to Switzerland for our high school education after completing 9th grade in the Aramco RT SS school. In fact, my father worked for Mr. Heising in the Inspections Department of the RT refinery. Brad was an adventurer, conservationist, idealist, entrepreneur, and above all lover of sailing and all things pelagic. Living just across the "pond" from me here in Queensland, my wife and I had planned to visit Brad and his partner at their sprawling B&B in the hills above Golden Bay (northern most part on the south island). Alas ....
It would be terrific if someone could contribute anything about dear old Brad. One shouldn't go through life without being remembered ... hopefully, positively.
