Elmer J. Heiman, 92 of Darien Center, went peacefully to be with the Lord on Sunday, July 26, 2020 at United Memorial Medical Center with his children by his side. Elmer was born May 3, 1928 at home to the late Walter (Lillian Bierline) Heimann.

Because of his love of Darien he became active in the Darien Fire Department as a Volunteer Firefighter, First Aid Instructor and EMT. His passion for history led him to seek appointment as Town Historian where he served for 52 years. He became active in town politics serving as Councilman and on the County Planning Board.

He attended the Darien United Methodist Church. Mr. Heiman enjoyed weekly card games and Euchre tournaments. He will be remembered for the fun times he shared with his grandchildren, his wit and sense of humor and his ability to fix anything with duct tape.
