MANSFIELD: Gregory K. Heindel, age 58, unexpectedly passed away in his Mansfield home Tuesday, March 13, 2018.
He was born October 1, 1959 in Lansing, MI to parents John Heindel & Jean Elizabeth (Potter). After graduating from Mentor High School with the class of 1977, he attended the Ohio State University for general business and journalism courses and the Ohio School of Broadcast Technique in Cleveland where he graduated in 1982.
Greg had a 35-year career in radio and television broadcasting as a news anchor and reporter. He had the thrill of covering presidents, interviewing governors, senators and Congress members, and covering breaking news of every imaginable type. He moved to Mansfield in 1991 for a job with WMAN and later worked for WMFD which brought him into Ohio homes through radios and televisions for 26 years. Most recently Greg worked as a Modern Woodmen of America Financial Representative in Mansfield.
In spare time, he enjoyed relaxing at home and attending Cleveland Indians and Browns games.
He is survived by his mother Jean Cosgrove of Bluffton, SC, two brothers and sisters-in-law David & Patti Heindel of Bothell, WA, and Edward & Terri Heindel of Kent, OH; nieces and nephews Stephen, Sarah, Matthew, and Joseph Heindel; along with numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
Greg was preceded in death by his father John Heindel and step-father Allan Cosgrove.
