MARK RANDALL HESTON
Mark Randall Heston, 66, of Fairfield, Iowa, passed away March 18, 2021, at Jefferson County Hospital after suffering a stroke in late February. Mark was born March 2, 1955, to Shirley and Emil Heston Jr. of Fairfield, Iowa.
Mark grew up in Fairfield and as a youth was a very good athlete and active in many sports. On many days you could also find him honing his snooker and pool shooting skills at the Elite Billiard Parlor. He married LuAnn Reno in 1978 (later divorced) and they moved to Las Vegas. Mark was a master poker dealer at the Lady Luck Casino for many years before relocating back to Fairfield.
When not working for his good friend Jerry Story at the Hideaway, Mark played a lot of pool. As anyone would attest to, he was a tremendous pool player, and not afraid to let you know it. He would almost always back that up. In addition, he was the consummate conversationalist, sometimes making it difficult to get a word in.
Mark was preceded in death by his father; sister, Sheri; and LuAnn Reno, his former wife.
He is survived by his mother; sister, Nanette (nieces Amy, Jessica, and nephew Matt); and brothers, Bruce (Stacey and nephews Maxwell, Alexander and Jack) and Mike.
We would like to especially thank a special friend, Kathy Kessel, who helped Mark throughout his years when needed.
A celebration of life will be announced at a later date which likely will be late this spring or mid-summer, depending on COVID-19.
