Dewey Heetderks

Kentwood, MI, United States

From 1963 to 1965, after graduating from the University of Michigan, I worked in the Army medical core as a urologist on Sandia base. The base, located on the edge of Albuquerque, New Mexico, produced and stored nuclear weapons. I also worked at Kirtland, which is the world’s largest storage for nuclear weapons. After the military, I continued my career as a urologist in a private practice for thirty-three years, and I taught clinical urology at Michigan State University Medical School. Throughout my years in the army and my private medical practice, I served patients who needed solutions to various physical problems. But the greatest way that I could help anyone in life would be to encourage them to have faith in the Lord, who would be their greatest blessing.
