WIENCEK, Henry J. Passed away peacefully on October 7, 2021.

Born in Clinton in 1925, the son of Laura (Kowalczyk) and Alexander Wiencek, Henry lived almost his entire life in South Boston and Dorchester. He attended Our Lady of Czestochowa Church and school. After graduating from Mechanic Arts High School, he entered the U.S. Army Air Forces, flying 17 missions as a B-17 ball-turret gunner, earning the Air Medal with Oak Leaf Cluster for meritorious achievement in combat operations over Germany and occupied countries. He worked as a pipefitter at Jarvis Engineering and other companies.

In 1951 he married Helen Manning, who predeceased him. He is survived by his sons Henry, Paul, and John, six grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.

A private interment with military honors will be held in Cedar Grove Cemetery in Dorchester.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Henry's name to the Alzheimer's Association, P.O. Box 96011, Washington, DC 20090-6011, or by phone 800-272-3900.
