After the war, he returned to Western Electric's Dundalk plant and remained with the company until his retirement in 1981.

He was a member of the Gray Manor Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9743 and the Telephone Pioneers of America.

He enjoyed playing guitar and spending time with his three grandchildren.

He is also survived by his wife of 45 years, the former Linda Miller; a daughter, Denise Winter of Rosedale; and two brothers, David and John Heath.

A son, Joseph D. Heath Jr., died in April.
