Henry R. Hess of Willow Street, loving husband, father, and grandfather, passed away at age 96 on December 30, 2016 at Quarryville Presbyterian Home.
Hen is survived by his wife of over 71 years, Claire (Campbell) Hess; 3 children, Jeanne (Jack Hoffard,) Gregory (Joan) and Michael (Mary), 6 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. Hen was preceded in death by his parents, Howard and Martha Hess, and three sisters, Elvina Murray, Bertha Witmer and Edith Kauffman.
Hen is lovingly remembered for his good humor and positive attitude, as well as for being a “jack of all trades” and helper to everyone. He proudly served his country in the U.S. Army during World War II in Alaska and the Aleutian Islands. He retired from UGI Corporation after many years of service. Hen’s hands were always busy whether they were carving ducks, restoring antique furniture, or fixing a child’s broken toy. He will be sorely missed by his family.
Private services will be held at the convenience of the family.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Mr. Hess’s memory may be sent to Red Rose Veterans Honor Guard, P.O. Box 8601, Lancaster, PA 17604-8601.
