Stephen (Steve) David Hecox, age 78 and lifelong resident of Gothenburg, passed away on Friday, September 29 at his home with his family by his side. He was born on April 6, 1945 in Grand Island, NE.  He was the middle of three children born to Richard and Esther (Davis) Hecox. He was raised and began his educational career in Gothenburg, and graduated from Brady Public School with the class of 1963. 

He joined the Army Reserves in North Platte, and then transferred to the Hastings Unit when he pursued an education in carpentry at the Community College in Hastings. His Reserve Unit was deployed to Vietnam, where he proudly served from May of 1968 until he was Honorably Discharged in July of 1969.  Steve blessed us with many stories of his adventures in Vietnam, and we are thankful he took pictures and videos to enjoy, too. He was honored to serve in the Army and loved to share his love for the USA!
