Obituary for Henry Jung

Helmut “Henry” Jung (89) of Fishkill, NY, born on December 19, 1934, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family in the early hours of February 9, 2024. He was the son of Hans and Betty (Reichenberg) Jung.

Born in Bad Nauheim, Germany, Henry came to the United States on April 19, 1946 with his mother, father, brother, and sister. He married the love of his life, Joan Krivak, on November 1, 1954. They were married for 69 amazing years. Joan survives at home.

Henry attended Saunders Trade School in Yonkers, NY. He retired from General Motors in 1992. He was an avid Yankee fan. He lived for his wife and his family, between family barbecues in their backyard and Christmas Eve in the living room, being surrounded by all the kids always brought him such joy. Even in his final days, all he wanted was to see his newest great grandchildren one more time.
