He is preceded in death by his father, Urban A. Heppermann, and mother, Dorothy M. Heppermann nee Kersting.  Jim was a member of St. Joseph Parish in Josephville. He served in the U.S. Army and on the St. Charles County and Warren County Sheriff's Departments. He also served on the Wentzville and Wright City Police Departments, and even continued to serve on the Wright City Police Department part-time.
