Obituary

ROBERT BAUMAN "YANK" HEISLER, JR., age 68, of Hudson, Ohio, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, April 11, 2017. Born and raised in Ravenna, Ohio, Yank attended Ravenna High School where he played football, basketball and golf. He graduated cum laude with a BS in biochemical sciences from Harvard University in 1970, where he was a four-year member of the golf team. He received an MBA from Kent State University in 1974, and had a longtime career in banking before serving as dean of the Kent State University College of Business. Yank was a key leader of Society Bank and then KeyBank for over thirty years. His integrity, work ethic and loyalty were models for young bankers and the banking profession at large. A long-time resident of the Cleveland area, Yank was an avid supporter of sports, arts and culture in the region. His altruistic nature led him to devote time and fundraising efforts to many northeast Ohio organizations, including the Cleveland Orchestra, University Hospitals and the Ronald McDonald House. He also served on four corporate boards. To know Yank was to know his love of golf; for him, golf was not just a hobby, it was a passion. At Ravenna High School, he won back-to-back state championships in golf in his junior and senior years, and was a 1990 inductee of the Ravenna High School Hall of Fame. While at Harvard, he served as team captain and, forty years later, continued to look forward to playing the links with his college teammates. Yank was a longtime member of several golf clubs including Firestone, Mayfield, Pepper Pike and Bonita Bay. He is survived by his wife, Lynn (nee Machisko); his children Andrew (Joan), Kevin (Kaitlin), Jennifer (Kyle) Bernholz and Jeffrey (Abbey); his three granddaughters, Caroline Bernholz, Cameron Bernholz and Natalie Heisler, whom he truly adored; and his six sisters, Sue Young, Nancie Torrence, Anita Claringbole, Carol Seymour, Marsha Level and Dede Bell. In the words of his family, Yank had an "uncanny ability" to remember faces and names, and will be remembered for his positivity, magnetic personality, passion for golf and Cleveland, and unwavering support for his friends and family. There will be a celebration of Yank's life and legacy on Tuesday, April 18, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. at Fairmount Presbyterian Church, 2757 Fairmount Blvd., Cleveland Hts., OH 44118. Interment in Lake View Cemetery will be private. In lieu of flowers Yank's family invites contributions in his memory to the American Brain Tumor Association, 8550 W. Bryn Mawr Ave. Ste. 550, Chicago, IL 60631.
