Obituary

Henry (Hank) Patrick Fodor age 85, passed away peacefully on March 5th after a long battle with Alzheimer’s.
Born in Morgantown West Virginia, Henry moved to Barberton, OH as a young child. Hank was a graduate of Barberton High School Class of 1955.  Hank lettered all 4 years in basketball, baseball, football and track. He was known as “The Mighty Mite”.  
Hank was a meat cutter and Union Steward for the A&P for 22 years.  In 1974 he opened Sweet Henries, an iconic restaurant in Norton, OH.  He would later establish the Butcher Boys Meats in Barberton.  Hank would expand his entrepreneurial endeavors with a successful real estate career that would span over 50 years.
Hank had a passion for flight.  He became a private pilot and was a member of the Wadsworth Airmen’s Association, the American Bonanza Association, and the Experimental Aircraft Association.  He flew his Beechcraft Bonanza to countless destinations throughout the country or to a Saturday morning breakfast with his fellow airmen.  His yearly trip to Oshkosh with his family was his favorite trip.
His presence at the “round table” at Sweet Henries was a 40 year tradition.  Here he solved many of the world’s problems and his sense of humor will be missed by all his friends.  His generosity was felt by many and he will be missed by all who knew him.  
He leaves behind his beloved wife Linda (Swain); brother Bela (Nancy) Fodor, sister Lorain Pal; first wife and mother to his children Elizabeth (Scuilli) Fodor; daughter Teresa (Dominic) Vaccari, son Steve (Tina) Fodor, son Vincent (Susie) Fodor;
Grandchildren Matthew Fodor, Tina (Joel) Voss,  Anthony (Rachel) Fodor, and Samantha Fodor; Great grandchildren Ethan & London; as well as many nieces and nephews.  
A special thanks to the staff of The Village of St. Edward in Wadsworth and Fairlawn.  The care and compassion that you gave is greatly appreciated.
