Andrew A. Heise, 55, of Chillicothe, died 11:56 pm Wednesday, May 26, 2021 in the Ohio State University's Werner Medical Center's James Cancer Center following a courageous battle with Leukemia, not from a motorcycle crash like we all expected...or even what he would have preferred.
He was born September 20, 1965, in Columbus, Ohio, to his Dad (predeceased) Phillip and Linda Liscano Heise. On July 16, 1986, he married the love of his life, his high school sweetheart Ginger Conrad- Heise.
Also surviving are his mother Linda and step father, James Bragg of Circleville. A brother, Tony Heise and his longtime companion Terri Young, of Chillicothe; a sister, Donna Perry of Canal Winchester; beloved step brothers Dan (deceased) & Jeff Heise, of Amanda; James "LJ", Joe and Jason Bragg and wife Laura; step sisters Brenda, Kathy (deceased) & Debbie Heise; several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins; numerous friends and fans from his flat track racing family from around the world but especially those made at Triangle Motorcycle Club in Harpster, Ohio.
Andrew was the owner and operator of 4F Pizzeria in Chillicothe where everyone called him the "Flying Pizza Man", a nickname that followed him to the track. He also worked in construction for many years and drove semi trucks. These were things he did but they were not how he "made a living". They simply fueled his true living, racing motorcycles. A passion that was instilled into him by his hero, his grandfather Andrew "peg" Liscano and tolerated by his Grandmother Louise Liscano. A passion that has transcended five generations in the family. The 4F plate will be passed to and carried on by his great nephew, his protégé in training Austin Andrew Mann.
Go fast, turn left.
A celebration of his life will be held at a later date which will be announced on his Facebook page. Arrangements are under the direction of the WARE FUNERAL HOME.
In lieu of flowers, the family request that memorial contributions be made to the family thru their gofundme page: https://www.gofundme.com/f/abfjuk-help-andy-beat-cancer?utm_source=facebook&fbclid=IwAR0VXffLWgh030F9FZ1tv1p3Wm32_Pv3XAJ2AccxoXSfZANIJeP4M4b7pgg

Update: I want to thank you all for your cards, donations, comments and all around support! I wanted to take this moment to acknowledge some others that Andy loved so much.
Honda Hills! His childhood home track where Grandpa Andrew “Peg” Liscano taught him how to ride. He spent so many years racing there…And me along too after we met! The friends we made there are forever! And the thousands of pictures he took of everyone to support his racing! The Klamfoths were a big part of his life and then the Caldwells too. He was really looking forward to taking his great nephew Austin there this summer….and he was excited to get back on the old track too.
Fast Traxx….His favorite place to moto!
And I also want to mention his favorite job of all -----Pace/SFX Motorsports Group. He was a semi truck driver and track crew member of Arenacross, Supercross, Formula USA Road Racing and of course the National Dirt Track Series for several years. He was definitely in his element and absolutely loved every minute of it! We traveled the world because of motorcycles.
He loved each and every one of you! Never forget that! Mrs. 4F
