Henry S. Turek, 86, of Cliffside Park, NJ, formerly of Hoboken, NJ, passed away on August 22, 2019.The world lost a great man on August 22nd as Henry S. Turek passed peacefully surrounded by his daughter Lorene Turek, and grandchildren Tiffani Ann Garabedian, Ronnie Garabed, and Brittany Garabed. Most will remember as the depth of Henry’s kindness and heart were measured in his gracious nature and willingness to help anyone who needed assistance. Built on this foundation, Henry shared nearly 65 years with the love of his life, his wife Nancy Turek and has rejoined her following her recent passing. Together with Nancy, Henry welcomed the joys of children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren in the life they built.
A proud veteran serving in the Army during the Korean War, Henry exemplified service to his country and made it memorable to all around him. In his community, Henry was a legend, well-known for his business Paul’s and Son TV, which he started with his father in Hoboken and eventually moved the business to Cliffside Park. If he wasn’t fixing your TV, he was installing your air conditioner. After retiring, Henry enjoyed his time driving the senior bus for the Cliffside Park Housing Authority. Other joys in his life included his trips to California visiting his son and granddaughter, drives up to Nyack and Piermont, and watching his favorite teams with his family, including the Yankees, NY Giants, NJ Devils, Anaheim Ducks, and Fresno State Bulldogs.
Henry’s memory will always be cherished by his loving children including his daughter Lorene Turek and Paul Turek, his beloved grandchildren including Tiffani Ann Garabedian, Ronnie Garabed, Brittany Garabed, and Kayla Marie Turek, his cherished great-grandchildren, including Gabriella Morales, Rocco Morales, and Valentina Morales, as well as his dear sisters, including Claire Furino and Patty Narcisco.
When his twinkling blue eyes closed for good, it was a peaceful and graceful way of him tipping his hat to the rest of us and wishing us love and kindness in his absence.
