Heisley, a longtime St. Charles resident, was a billionaire businessman who bought the Vancouver Grizzlies and moved the NBA team to Memphis. He died Saturday at age 77 of complications from a massive stroke he suffered nearly 15 months ago.

Heisley sold the team to Robert Pera before the start of the 2012-13 season.
