July 09, 2009|By Frederick N. Rasmussen

Allan Bancroft Heaver, a property manager who was active numerous civic and professional organizations, died July 2 of complications from renal failure at Indigo Farms, his Clarksville farm. He was 57.

Born in Baltimore and raised in Roland Park, Mr. Heaver was a 1969 graduate of McDonogh School. He attended Lehigh University.

For the past 40 years, he had been a managing member of Heaver Properties in Lutherville.

His professional memberships included the Building Owners and Managers Association, the Baltimore Integrated Environmental Management Project Task Force for the Environmental Protection Agency, and the American Lung Association's Task Force For Indoor Air Quality Control.

Mr. Heaver was chairman of the board of directors of the Fire Museum of Maryland, and was a member of the boards of Wyman Park Federal Savings and Loan, United Way of Maryland, Maryland Special Olympics, Chesapeake Habitat for Humanity and Rocky Mountain College.

Mr. Heaver, who also had a home in Butler and enjoyed summering at an Ocean City summer home, was an accomplished gourmet cook.

A sports fan, he had been a longtime season ticket holder for the Colts, Orioles and Ravens.

He was nicknamed "The Beav" because of his hobby of collecting beaver memorabilia.

"They could be stuffed beaver toys, figures or anything such as ties, shirts or socks that had a beaver on it," said his wife of six years, the former Debbie Dove.

Mr. Heaver was a member of the Baltimore Country Club, where he enjoyed playing golf.

Services were held Tuesday at Ruck Towson Funeral Home.

Also surviving are a son, Brandon T. Heaver of Annapolis; a daughter, Darcy Heaver Buck of Annapolis; two stepchildren, B. Chris Wilhelm and Erin Wilhelm, both of Clarksville; a brother, Stephen G. Heaver of Roland Park; and a grandson. An earlier marriage ended in divorce.
