Henry Gretzkowski passed away peacefully May 20th, 2022, after a long illness. Henry was born July 7, 1948, the son of Henry Gretzkowski and Helen (née Dzienis) Gretzkowski. Henry spent his childhood in Camden, NJ, attending St Joseph Parochial school and St Joseph High School. From an early age he was an avid student of history. He earned a Bachelor's Degree at Rutgers University. He developed abiding, lifetime friendships through his membership in the Kappa Sigma Upsilon fraternity at Rutgers where he served on the Executive Committee. He had a career as a Social Worker at the Camden County Board of Social Services. He had a sensitive and generous nature and empathy for the struggles faced by many of his clients. His love of history continued throughout his life as evidenced by his reading, sharing of insights and his collection of books. Henry also possessed an incredibly encyclopedic knowledge of sports of all kinds; his commentary was always a pleasure to hear. He was a skilled chef and gardener. He was loyal and generous to his friends and their families and was always thoughtful and considerate. A great storyteller, he loved to laugh and reminisce. He will be missed by all who enjoyed and loved him. A memorial celebration will be planned for the summer.
