ST. LOUIS, Mo. – The St. Louis construction industry has lost a long-time member. Tom Heeger, chairman and CEO of Acme Constructors, died May 25 at the age of 77.

Heeger acquired Acme Constructors in 1995 and built the business into what it remains today.

He also served as co-chairman of the St. Louis Construction Cooperative.

Heeger’s service to the community also included work on the joint apprenticeship boards for the Carpenters and Ironworkers.

Volunteer service as a board member for Kenrick-Glennon Seminary and service to the Ronald McDonald House are also examples of Heeger’s generosity.
