Irv moved to Chadron in February 1956 with his family. He graduated from Assumption Academy in 1962 and later Chadron State College.

Irv taught in Hay Springs for a few years before moving to Rapid City, SD, where he worked for Freeds Fine Furniture. After a few years, he moved back to Chadron to help out his mother. Millie Heiser, who owned the Bowling Alley. 

He did that for several years before he started working at the local Wal-Mart in Dec 1997. He never left and was still a Wal-Mart associate when he passed.

He was loved by many and will be missed dearly.

Irv is survived by his brother Jim Heiser, three nieces: Kristina Cashon, Jodi (Brian) Kimmel, and Amanda Cashon (Fiance Dylan), one nephew Mike Gunwall, and two great nephews, seven great nieces, one great great nephew, one great great niece with one on the way.
