Henry Matthew Grell, known to his friends as Hank, passed away peacefully on Monday, February 18, 2019. Hank was a lifelong New Yorker and a longtime Stuyvesant Town resident. He was a Navy Veteran, serving on the U.S.S. Enterprise from 1963 to 1967 during the Vietnam War. After 40 years of dedicated service, Hank retired from Con Edison as a control room operator in 2008. Hank was a past Grand Knight for the Knights of Columbus and parishioner at Immaculate Conception Church. Hank was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, uncle and brother. He was an avid chess player and history buff who loved to watch documentaries, movies, and read many historical pieces. In his spare time, he would often enjoy constructing model ships with complex details. He was a friendly and kind man who often would be seen chatting with friends and neighbors on a park bench. Hank took pride in his family and enjoyed spending time with them, especially his four grandchildren. He will be greatly missed by all. He is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Marilyn, sons, Christopher (Tara) and Stephen (Maureen), brother, David, sister, Carolyn, and grandchildren, Kaitlin, James, Erin, and Michael.

Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. It seems so unfair that death should have the power to take away someone you love. However, the Bible at Psalm 34 and verse 18 assures us that our Heavenly Father is aware of our pain and is near to the broken-hearted. The Bible also gives us the promise that there will be a resurrection and that God will bring an end to death once and for all (Revelation 21:4). It is my hope that the power of God’s Word will help to ease your sorrow as you cherish the loving memories you shared together. For more information please visit JW.ORG.

Hank was one of the sweetest men I've ever known. Always ready to help when he could...never a bad word to say about anyone or anything. I will miss running into you!
