Heathcote passed away on August 28.

His memorial service is scheduled for Saturday, September 23, at 2:00 p.m. PDT (5:00 p.m. EDT) at St. Mark's Lutheran Church in Spokane.

Heathcote led the Spartans to 340 wins, three Big Ten titles, nine NCAA Tournament appearances and one national championship during his 19 seasons as head coach at Michigan State. The national championship year in 1979 saw Heathcote mold and mentor one of the greatest basketball players of all-time in Earvin "Magic" Johnson. Heathcote is the second-winningest coach in MSU history, which includes a 14-8 mark in the NCAA Tournament. 

There is a reception to follow at Manito Country Club, 5303 South Hatch Road, Spokane, WA 99223.

The service is open to the public.
