Dan Hieb

Dan Hieb, 56, Minot, died Sunday, July 29, 2012, in  his home, surrounded by his loving family. 

Daniel was born January 11, 1956, in Rugby, North Dakota the son of Jacob and Janet (Theiling) Hieb.  He was raised and educated in Des Lacs, ND, graduating with the class of 1974. 

Dan began his career in the construction industry, gaining experience with Anderson and Lach Construction.  Following the completion of a housing complex in south Minot for McGough Construction, Dan joined Tom Assels Construction as a finish carpenter in 1976.  He started Hieb Construction in 1979, serving the community of Minot as a general contractor that focused on residential housing and some commercial work.  Dan also served the Williston area in the early 80’s during the first oil boom building many residential homes to meet the demand of the region. 

Dan was joined in holy marriage to Jill Thunshelle on October 4, 1980, in Plaza, ND.  They made their home in Minot and were blessed with two children, Trevor and Kyla. 

He operated his construction company until he gained employment with the US Army Corps of Engineers as a construction tech for the past eight years on the Minot Air Force Base until his health forced his retirement.  In addition to his career in construction Dan and Jill have also continued to own and operate South Side Storage of Minot for several years. 

Dan was a member of Grace Fellowship Church, Burlington, serving on the church council and as a church elder.  Dan carried a membership to Gideon’s International and served on the Our Redeemer’s Christian School Board.  He also served as a member of the Williston Builders Association. 

He found enjoyment in the outdoors and was most often found to be fishing, hunting, boating and camping.  His first priority was being a loving husband, devoted father, proud grandfather, trusted brother and friend.  He will be deeply missed by all who shared in his life.

His family includes loving wife of 31 years, Jill, Minot, children, Trevor Hieb, Denver, CO and Kyla (Jason) Splichal, Breckenridge, MN, grandson, Daniel Splichal, mother, Janet Hieb, Burlington, ND, brothers, Arnie (Peggy) Hieb, Phoenix, AZ, Richard (Luanna) Hieb, Lake Audubon, ND, Larry (Peggy) Hieb, Lake Audubon, ND and Tim Hieb, Phoenix, AZ and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. 

Dan was preceded in death by his father, Jacob;  brother, Kenneth Hieb; and sister-in-law Kathy Hieb. 

Celebration of Life Service:  2:00 p.m. Thursday, August 2, 2012 at Our Redeemer’s Lutheran Brethren Church, Minot.
Interment:  Sunset Memorial Gardens, Minot
Visitation:  Wednesday, August 1, 2012 from 2:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at the Thomas Family Funeral Home, Minot.

MessageJill, I remember you and Dan as good friends and always a joy to visit with. It breaks my heart to know somewhat the pain you and your family are experiencing. If I knew the words to say that would take away the pain I would use them. Pastor Jennings told me I wouldn't feel such pain if I hadn't loved so deeply. You feel that pain because Dan was and is loved so deeply. I will keep you in my prayers.

MessageDan will be missed, as days pass and healing takes place. More and more will find that the person behind the scenes that was simply getting things done with out making a lot of noise is not taking those tasks. Dan was busy in life, talked often of the enjoyment construction has brought to him and his family. A community will feel the laps, as Dan was involved in many aspects. I wish to all of his family for peace and bonding as this time passes. Know that family extends much further than just blood line as you well know there were many lives touched by Dan. Michael

MessageI am really sad to hear of Dan's passing. I worked with Dan at the base. He was the construction inspector for the new family housing construction and I work at the Housing Office. Dan and his family is in my prayers. I do have some photos of Dan at the base when he came out to accept the last of the MILCON housing units. I will share them with the funeral home and I asked them to share the photos with you. Once again Dan will be missed.

MessageI've known Dan since the 70's and I started back then with Great Plains and building homes in Green Acres. That's where I got to know him and he was always a good person with a good heart. He will always be missed. Sorry for your loss. Ron Erickson
