Joe and I were best friends from about first grade to seventh at Saint Josephs.  We spent many Saturdays exploring the creeks and ravines around Redding looking for old bottles, arrowheads and panning for gold in Sulfur creek and  just having a good time being kids. We had many overnight stays as younsters at our parents houses and got into a lot of mischief.  We crossed the railroad tressel on the catwalk and did the same on the miracle mile bridge. Joe was fearless.  In high school Joe and I were not so close of friends, he moved along to keggers and girls and I was still looking for arrowheads and fishing.  Joe was still a lot of fun and a character that would do anything for a good laugh and do it very athletically, he could make a good joke out of about anything.  Joe and I reconnected many years later and had some good times talking by his place on Topaz Lake.  I was impressed by his woodworking skills and that he had the trout fishing in Topaz Lake figured out. Dang, I wish Joe could come and go fishing with me now at my place here in Mexico. He was fearless and a lot of fun.

I was good freinds with Joe Heinan in high school, I also knew him in  grade school.  I saw him a few times in later yers, not enough of course. Here is one memory that I have. It was a hot afternoon, the end of the school day and the end of the year. It was graduation practice for us out on the football  field and it was hot. Suddenly the sprinklers came on and people just kind of ran around laughing. It was abviously the end of practice, we got to leave early. I remember that Joe is the one who turned on the sprinklers and then qjuickly melted back into the crowd. Maybe somebody else did it but that's what I remember.
