Born in Montreal, he joined the Royal Canadian Dragoons in the early 1930s as a boy soldier and went overseas with them in WWII. He later transferred to the 12th Manitoba Dragoons and then the Canadian Provost Corps.

In 1960 - 61 he served in the Congo with the Canadian Signals Unit as part of the United Nations Peace Keeping Unit. RSM Heymans retired from the Army in 1963 as a Warrant Officer first class.
