Henry Cyr Jr., 81, of New Britain, passed away Saturday, Aug. 18, 2018, with his family by his side. Born in Keegan, Maine, to the late Henry and Winnie (Thibodeau) Cyr. Henry moved to New Britain when he was in his teens and started working at Stanley Works, where he met the love of his life, Lucy (Canata) Cyr, they were married just over 60 years.
Henry is survived by his loving wife, Lucy; his son, Donald Cyr of New Britain, Conn.; his daughters, Susan Griffin and her husband, Tom of North Carolina, and Sandy Douglas and her husband, Stephen of Maine; his granddaughters, Jennifer Hutchins, Heather Howard, and Tonya Philpot; his grandsons, Kenney Hutchins and Christopher Hleva; his great-grandchildren, Ashley, Brittany, Jacob, Isabelle, Jocelyn, Madeline, Lydia, Olivia and Jack; a sister, Cecile Lessard of Massachusetts; nieces, Diane, Jeannine, Josey and Wendy; and many cousins, and close friends. He also leaves behind his beloved dog, Woofie, who misses him dearly.
In life, Henry loved camping. He had a spot in Goose Green, Vt., where loved to be. He loved the scenery year-round, but he enjoyed winter, as he liked to go snowmobiling. When he wasn’t in Vermont, he was home, usually in his workshop building something or working on old cars. After retiring from Stanley Works in his 60s, he continued to work around cars, finding a position at Papa’s Dodge in New Britain. Henry enjoyed the holidays and took pleasure in decorating his house for Christmas every year.
