Alan Ray Billheimer, 67, of Piqua, Ohio, went to be with the Lord on January 18, 2022. Alan was born on November 14, 1954 to David and Mariah (McBee) Billheimer in Troy, Ohio. He was a graduate of Miami East High School. In 1976, Alan married Debra Rank in Christiansburg, Ohio. Alan and Debra went on to have three children: Bradley, Sheila, and Lisa. They were blessed to have celebrated 45 years of marriage last year. Alan retired in 2010 after having worked as a truck driver for thirty-five years. Alan loved Jesus Christ. He and Debra faithfully read the Bible together each morning. He was passionate about sharing his love of Jesus and the message of the Gospel. He lived a life of transformed grace, and everyone who knew him was witness to the love of Jesus Christ in him. Alan showed loved to people through hugs, smiles, and jokes, but most importantly, he pointed them all to Jesus. Throughout his life, Alan enjoyed boating with friends and family and traveling with Debra and their children and grandchildren. He especially looked forward to the annual family tradition of traveling up north to Burt Lake, Michigan for a week of memory-making with upwards of 80 family members! Alan was preceded in death by his parents, David and Mariah Billheimer. He is survived by his beloved wife Debra of Piqua, Ohio; his three children, Bradley (Sarah) Billheimer of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Sheila (Matthew) Enneking of Troy, Ohio, and Lisa (Eric) Stetzel of Ludlow Falls, Ohio; his brothers Darrell (Joan) Billheimer of Covington, Ohio, Donald (Anita) Billheimer of Hesperia, California and; and eight grandchildren, who were his pride and joy: Natalie, Mollie, and Graham Billheimer of Oklahoma City; Kara, Elizabeth, and Levi Enneking of Troy; and Aubrey and Caleb Stetzel of Ludlow Falls. In 2 Timothy 4:7, the apostle Paul writes, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” Alan most certainly fought the good fight, finished the race, and kept the faith to the very end. The way in which he steadfastly clung to his Savior brings hope and comfort to his entire family. Funeral services will be held 10:00 AM Saturday, January 22, at Jackson-Sarver Funeral Home, 1 S.
