Robert C. Heeney Jr., a leasing sales consultant, died of melanoma Tuesday at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The Columbia resident was 50.

Mr. Heeney began his business career working for Bank of America in Baltimore in the late 1970s, and later was vice president of leasing for a decade at Orix Credit Alliance Inc. in Hanover, Howard County.

He was a leasing consultant for Summit Bank in Columbia for two years before taking a position in 1999 as a leasing sales consultant with FSG Leasing Inc. in Laurel.

Mr. Heeney enjoyed traveling, sailing, golfing and playing tennis.
