Jeffrey “Scotty” Heidtman, II, 33 years old, of Toledo, Ohio, died on Sunday June 20, 2021. Scotty, an ironworker for Local 55, was a unique person who loved to work and play hard. Scotty lived his life to the full, loved his family and friends deeply, and brought his tremendous presence and sense of humor with him everywhere he went. Scotty had a real heart and everyone who knew Scotty loved him and loved being surrounded by his charismatic energy!

Scotty was born on July 23, 1987 in Toledo, Ohio, to Jeffrey Heidtman, Sr. and Andrea (Ardoyno) Syroka. He graduated from Bedford High School, where he was a celebrated athlete in both wrestling and football. Scotty was passionate about his country, work, family, a great Euchre game, and the Ohio State Buckeyes! He loved his dog and spent time outdoors, especially at Devil’s Lake and the Au Sable River.

He was loved and will be remembered by his colleagues at the ironworks as an incredibly dedicated, hard-working member of the crew who always made “the boys” laugh. Scotty also spent a lot of time helping his family’s business, Northern Tree Service, and could cut a tree in minutes and would do anything in his sandals.

Syroka; his stepmother Laura Heidtman; and his father, Jeffrey Heidtman, Sr; his sisters Samantha (Victor V.)
