Howard was my nextdoor neighbor at Blakehurst for 20 years. I met him when I was younger because he was a friend of the Cavacos family. He was a fine old fashioned gentleman, thoughtful and friendly. We played in bridge groups together. I helped him tie his bow tie when he attended formal parties at Blakehurst. He was a snappy dresser, wearing bermuda shorts into the winter. He was a great conversationalist. I will miss him!

I will forever be indebted to Mr. Heiss. After being loyal customers for many many years, he gave me my first "real" job 40 years ago at 17 years of age and taught me so much about dealing with the public and gave me great confidence to move further in a different career. Because of that first job, I met my husband and am blessed with a son. He was a man of fairness, resilience and compassion. A great man indeed!

I was the person who made him cry the day I paid off my account when he was closing his business. He was a great person

Howard was always the perfect gentleman. Coat, tie, vest, pocket Silk. His song was “Even Now”. I had it on a CD in the car. I would pick him up at Blakehurst, he would settle back in the seat and sing and hum along with the music on the way to Church. God Bless Howard, I’ll never forget those rides.

Howard was such a wonderful man. I grew up on Conduit Ave off of Falls Road. My Mother Catherine was a friend of Howards and when I got married in 1967 he gave me a beautiful metal canister set for my kitchen that I still use today. I remember his Dad also and they were a wonderful family. I had a little green book for paying all the things at the store that I bought on credit. I have such fond memories of those days shopping in Heiss Jewelers and talking to Howard, his Dad and the lady (I don’t remember her name) who worked at the front desk. May he RIP and my most sincere and deepest Sympathy to all the family.

Mr. Heiss was the sweetest man. Three generations of my family bought jewelry from his store located on the corner of 36th Street and Roland Ave. He will be missed deeply. My family condolences to his family.

I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Mr. Heiss. I had the great pleasure of getting to know him while assisting him with his tie for dinner. He was such a snazzy dresser. I loved his jokes and his stories of his college and military days. I learned so much from him about the Baltimore that existed before my birth! My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

I have many great memories of Mr. Heiss, such a nice man. My grandma bought my 1st birthstone ring from him among other things. I would go with her to his store when she made payments and would always see him in the neighborhood. My condolences to his family, he will always be remembered Hampden family!
