He became a defensive captain by his senior year in 1992 as a linebacker as part of the famed “Desert Swarm” defense.

Following his playing career at Arizona, he first spent time as a graduate assistant with Arizona program before embarking on a career as a financial advisor. He became a managing partner at WealthTrust Advisors.

He is survived by his wife Nicole (Nikki), his children Caden, Mason, Jake, and Mia. His parents, Ron and Linda Bray, brother Aaron, and sister Trista.

It is written in his obituary: “Heath’s memory will forever linger in the hearts of those who knew and loved him, his legacy a testament to the enduring power of love, resilience, and unwavering determination.”
