I knew Henry through my life long friend Melanie Kavaler Rn as we grew up together in Jackson Heights Queens New York . His sister Sarah lived two doors up the street from us on 85th street. Henry was a devoted husband to his soul mate Zelmie, a devoted father to Carol , Nancy , and Gina, as well as a devoted brother to Sarah , and son to his Mother Nanna Comparetto, who lived with Sarah until her passing. My sincere condolences to the immediate and extended Comparetto family. May the many happy memories you shared as a family in Emerson, in Queens New York , and at the Jersey Shore be some comfort to you know. May the angels welcome him to paradise , and may he rest in eternal peace.

I always loved seeing Henry and listening to all his stories. When I was younger in my 20s and 30s he always asked if I was pregnant and when I was having a baby. I always remembered that. Rest In Peace Henry you are with Zelmi now. ❤️❤️❤️
