Henry Frey, Jr. Obituary

Henry E. (Hank) Frey Jr., 87, died peacefully on December 22, 2023, in his home in Tiffin, Ohio.

He was born at Tiffin Mercy Hospital on August 4, 1936, to Henry E. and Mildred (Gardner) Frey.  Hank graduated from Tiffin Columbian High School in 1954 and went on to Case Institute of Technology (now CWRU) in Cleveland.  He graduated in 1958 with a BS in mechanical engineering.  While there he joined Beta Theta Pi fraternity and ASME and enjoyed singing in the glee club. 

On the happiest day of his life, May 2, 1959, he married Carol E.

Hank started working for National Machinery in high school and returned there to work as a design engineer after completing college.  He retired from National Machinery in 1997 as Product Engineering Manager.  He had obtained his professional engineer's license in 1963.

Hank was a life member of Trinity United Church of Christ where he taught Sunday School for 17 years, sang in the choir, and served on church council (twice as president) and on various committees and groups.

Hank was a member of Tiffin Lodge #77 Masons, a 32nd degree member of Scottish Rite Valley of Toledo, and a member of Zenobia Shrine.

After retiring, Hank volunteered with Habitat for Humanity and at Mercy Hospital and Mercy Cancer Center.  He enjoyed golf and was a member of the Amvets Golf League.  Hank enjoyed watching baseball, and college football and basketball.
