In the early morning hours of October 30th, 2021 God called upon Henryk to join Him in Heaven. Henryk “has fought the good fight, he has finished the race, he has kept the faith.” Henryk was a faithful and loving husband, caring and generous father, loving and adorable dziadek. Knowledgeable and righteous, he was a devout Catholic building on Truth and on what is most important in life. He played organ and led various choirs in his career in Poland. He was a man of music and played a rich piano repertoire every day. He was a baritone and in his later days Henryk sung as a bass at the Most Holy Trinity Parish in Montreal, which he attended for over 25 years. After retirement, he composed harmony to over 120 songs and donated his work to Our Lady of Chęstochowa in Jasna Góra, Poland. He passed peacefully to join the Lord in Heaven.
He leaves to mourn his devoted wife of 53 years Teresa Szymak Grabkowska, his loving children Piotr (Julita), Krzysztof (Beata) and Sławomir (Katarzyna), his adoring grandchildren Michał, Jakub, Paweł, Jan-Krzysztof, Anna Maria, Marie Teresa, Luke Henryk Bogdan, Barbara and Zofia. He will be greatly missed by his sisters Krystyna (Mieczysław) and Jadwiga (Tadeusz), brother-in-law Eugeniusz (Wanda), sister-in-law Weronika (Ryszard), nephew Robert (Janet) along with his extended family and friends in Poland, USA and Australia.
The family will receive condolences at J.J. Cardinal Funeral Home, 2125 Notre-Dame, Lachine on Thursday, November 4th, 2021 from 2 pm to 5 pm and 7 pm to 9 pm. The Rosary and Holy mass will take place at the Parish of St. John Paul II at 11:30, at 34, 34th Avenue, Lachine, Montreal thence to Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery for burial.
“Wieczny odpoczynek racz mu dać Panie.”
