Ron Heeringa, patriarch of the Heeringa family that operates Bode’s Precast Inc., passed away on November 11, 2015. His determination, creativity and desire to create exceptional precast concrete products will be carried on by his sons, Ray & Rick Heeringa.
When Ron wasn’t working with concrete, he worked in his garden where he and his wife cultivated acres of national award-winning dahlias.
After gardening season was over, Ron spent his free time making outstanding, intricately detailed scroll saw pieces from working clocks to large castles.
Ray has worked at BODE’S since 1972. During his 46 years as a crane operator, he’s hauled, lifted and set just about anything you can think of. No job site is perfect, but Ray effectively handles the changes necessary to assure a superior job.
Ray is also BODE’S Production Manager. Ray coordinates the various department personnel to ensure that BODE’S customers receive their products on time and as specified continuing the legacy that his Father, Ron Heeringa started many years ago.

Rick has worked in the concrete ready-mix and precast industries for over 40 years. Because he has worked in all departments, Rick has detailed knowledge of the construction, specifications and utilization of BODE’S products which is a great benefit to our customers.
Another important aspect of Rick’s position is to stay current on county septic regulations as well as the engineering standards for the custom precast panels BODE’S manufactures. Rick works closely with customers on design and installation of our innovative Redi-Rock® retaining wall system.
