In memory of
Howard Henis, 75, of Warrington, PA, passed away on July 30th, 2020. Howard was born in South Philly on April 24th, 1945 to Louis and Tobey (Zorwell) Henis. Howard met and fell in love with Sharon Saks when they were 13 and 15 years old at a dance party. They have been dancing ever since.
Howard graduated in the honors society from Temple University in 1966 as an accountant. He accepted a job at Arthur Anderson right after he married his childhood sweetheart. Their romance lasted 54 years.
You could always count on him for anything; whether it was running to the grocery store, delivering soup, doing your taxes or running over to let the dogs out. He never turned down a homemade meal or chance to treat you to dinner. He was patiently waiting to eat a peanut with his grandson. A summer rarely went by that he didn't spend on the porch in Ocean City with his family; with a cigar and a book in his hand.
Howard is survived by his beloved wife, Sharon (Saks) Henis, his daughters and son-in-law's, Jill (Henis), Scott Shapiro and Nori (Henis), Josh Jacobson. Howard is also survived by his big sister and brother-in-law, Sharon (Henis), Harold Riffkin, and his sister and brother-in-law, Bonnie (Saks), Alvaro Munoz.
Howard was a proud Zayda to four grandchildren; Lindsay, Melanie, Rebecca and Zachary. Howard had many nieces, nephews and numerous beloved friends. Howard was his happiest when he was surrounded by all the people he loved and his puppy, Jessie. He enjoyed spending his time at the Cigar Shop with the guys and playing golf on Sundays with Al. He always showed up for his grandkids sports games, music concerts and celebrations. He was known for the wise advice he would give to everyone and his sarcastic sense of humor. Temple remained a huge part of his life by attending many football tailgates with his family and friends. He was always sure to let Sharon know how much he loved her, and when she was with him, all was right in the world. He will be greatly missed.
Howard will be laid to rest on August 2nd, 2020,12:00 noon at Montefiore Cemetery, 600 Church Rd, Jenkintown, PA, Section 14.
