Online Condolences:

May God Bless and keep my Uncle Hank- a man who was always young at heart, was talented and lived his family. My mother always was so happy to see her baby brother!!! Judi McEntee Hicks
Being the granddaughter of Henry, I knew him as Grandpa. He will forever remain in my heart along with the many, many memories I have of him. He always told me that no matter what, he wanted me to keep smiling. Almost every visit he told me that when me and my dad were about to leave with whatever sibling we had brought. I would turn from him to follow out my dad and he would hold me a bit longer telling me this. That is a memory I will keep close to me. I wish the rest of our family love. -Gillian Stempien
My deepest sympathy to all. Another Stempien has crossed over and joined his predecessors. While he may be gone, little pieces of him live on. I am so happy to see that there are so many Stempiens - great grandchildren as well! What lovely Blessings!! Uncle Henry, may you rest in peace now. You are my Dad's "little brother" and I know he loves you so. Now you are together. Blessings and Love, Monica (Stempien) Courtney
My Dad is with Jesus. He passed peacefully this afternoon with me by his side. I’d like to share these things about him… First, he loved his children and was always there for us. He never said no. When you Needed him, he was always there for us. He also had a remedy for whatever was ailing you, be it, a cough, sore throat, or anything else that you had going on. We used to refer to him as, “Dr. Stempien.” He loved music, photography, driving, and loved to be in the kitchen cooking or baking. I can’t tell you how many times he’d bake something and asked me to be sure to taste it. He also loved his dogs. He grew up on a farm in Oakfield, NY and Bootsie was one of his childhood dogs. My parents have been married for 64 years! Quite the accomplishment to say the least. They raised 4 children, have 7 grandchildren, and 5 great grandchildren. They were truly blessed! I just want to say that I am going to miss my Dad a whole lot. He taught me how to drive and gave me many tips about photography. I was fortunate enough to work a long side of him at Government Center Camera and North Station Camera for 20 years! I treasure those memories. In closing, I just want to add that I’m not going to say “Goodbye” to my Dad, but “till we see each other again in Heaven.” Susan Stempien
