Obituary for Fred Heinzelmann
FRED HEINZELMANN (Age 87)
Our wonderful father, Fred Heinzelmann, a Research Psychologist died peacefully in Ashburn, Virginia on December 13, 2018.
Dr. Heinzelmann, “Baba”, a former resident of Vienna Virginia for more than 50 years, lived in Ashburn, Virginia. He was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin the son of German immigrants Joseph and Sophie Heinzelmann. He received a B.S. Degree from Marquette University and also earned a Master’s Degree and a Doctorate in Social Psychology from the University of Minnesota . From 1960 to 1970 he was a Social Scientist with the U.S. Public Health Service in Washington D. C. where he carried out research on factors influencing health behavior. The studies were designed to promote actions that can prevent illness and enhance a person’s health and well being. The research focused on individual actions as well as the development of more effective health programs and policies. The results helped to demonstrate the benefits of exercise and other aspects of a healthy lifestyle. From 1970 to 1994, he was a member of the U.S. Department of Justice where he served as Director of the Crime Prevention and Enforcement Division in the National Institute of Justice - the major research arm of the U. S. Department of Justice. The research activities he focused on were designed to prevent crime, to improve policing and to provide assistance and support to crime victims.
Dad was a member of The American Psychological Association and St. Mark Catholic Church in Vienna, Virginia where he was involved in various parish and community service activities. These included directing the Parish Annual Thanksgiving Clothing Drive, participating in the Ministry to the Sick and Homebound and serving as a Eucharistic Minister and as a tutor in the Parish School. In addition, he was the beloved “Baba”, assistant science teacher along with his daughter Laura Moore. He taught at Little Graces School in the Plains, Virginia as well as Linton Hall School in Bristow, Virginia.
His wife, Ernestine Heinzelmann, died in 1980.
Survivors include his two daughters, Laura Moore of Pawleys Island, SC, and Lisa Hensley of Ashburn, Virginia, and his son Joseph (Josh) Heinzelmann of Vienna, Virginia and eight grandchildren Steven, Katelyn, Caleigh, Christin, Carly, Grace, Tyler and Julia.
