Henryk was an outstanding husband, father and family man loved by everyone who knew him. He was a risk taker, not in a reckless way but rather in a way to advance his family and their quality of life. In Poland he took the risk of not joining the Communist party which curtailed his education and future there. He took that risk in order to enhance his ability to emigrate to America and build a new life for his family including his mother and his sister.
Once in America, in addition to working long hours as a skilled craftsman, he became an entrepreneur investing in real estate, often providing housing for his relatives. He was generous, funny, warm and often the life of the party. He loved God and devoted hours of his time to the church choir. His nephew and his family in Maryland will sorely miss him, we send our condolences to our aunt Bronislawa and the Butryn family, John Stepien and family.

Uncle Henry, you were my Godfather and my favorite Uncle. I will always cherish the love you had for God, your family, and both of the countries that you called home. You were always a great man and a constant inspiration to me. We had great conversations about our Polish heritage and shared our love for the Henryk Sienkiewicz novels. Your unwavering commitment to care for your Mother, your Sister, and your own family; while doing the best for everyone always served as a model of a true Christian Man. You were a self-made man that could do anything, and you were always so proud of your wife, your children, and grandchildren - and finally your first great-grandchild! You lived a full and beautiful life. You were always generous and loving whenever we met or spoke. I will miss you greatly Wujek. God Bless You and rest your soul, Best of Men. I will never forget you. My deepest condolences to Aunt Bernice and all my cousins and their families. You are all in my prayers.

Uncle Henry was my favorite uncle. His gregarious laugh. His beautiful singing voice. His love of life and the strong example he set for perseverance through difficult times. I miss you, Uncle Henry. I'll see you in my prayers. God bless you.
