Obituary of Hans W. Heitkoenig
Hans W. Heitkoenig, age 35, formerly of Barrington, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, September 17, 2022. Born in Providence, he was the son of Alfred Heitkoenig of San Juan and Kimberly (Anderson) Couchon of Tiverton. A graduate of St. Andrews School, Class of 2013, he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and Marketing from the University of Rhode Island where an internship for his degree led to the position of Marketing Manager and Brand Ambassador for a startup company in NYC, where he lived for 5 years until the pandemic brought him home to RI. Hans continually blessed others with his warm spirit and irresistible joy of living. His easy smile and generous hugs were a perpetual gift to those in his life. He was a lover of music and enjoyed concert going, most especially the Phish festivals which he enjoyed with his beloved brother and a large community of dear friends for over two decades. He was a generous soul who enjoyed sharing all that he was with loved ones. To call him a “people person” fails to describe how people of all ages gravitated toward him. Animals were also drawn to him. He had a special way with them and he was their passionate advocate. In addition to his parents, he leaves behind, his brother, Carl Heitkoenig of Providence; his maternal grandfather, William B. Anderson of Barrington; his stepfather, Mark Couchon of Tiverton; his step-siblings, Tyler Couchon and his wife Liz and Ashley Couchon and her husband Steve Webster; his soul mate Erica DiNardo of Rye, NY and many adoring aunts, uncles, cousins, step-nieces and friends. Contributions in his honor may be made to A.S.P.C.A., 600 Pennsylvania Ave., SE #450, Washington, D.C. 20003. Private arrangements are in the care of Waring-Sullivan Home at Cherry Place, Fall River.
