Heath did 2 tours: 1 in Kosovo and 1 in Iraq with the 285th area support medical company. He was a 2-time Ohio Army National Guard Non-Commissioned Officer of the year.

Heath contracted lung cancer from the burn pits while serving overseas and unfortunately passed away from the disease on May 6, 2020 at 39 years old.
