Dear Brothers, Sisters, Kith and Kin,
It is with a deep sense of sadness and regret that we must report to you the passing of our 34-year Retired Member Brother Henry “Hank” Helgeson on April 27, 2022.
He was born on December 28, 1941 and initiated into Local One on December 15, 1988.
We thank Brother Hank for his service in the U.S. Army, the NYPD and the NYFD. Brother Hank was assigned to Ladder 4, stationed on 48th Street and 8th Avenue. Their motto is “We Never Missed a Performance” and neither did Brother Hank.
He started his career as an apprentice at Sound Associates and later went on to be the House Soundman for Studio 54 and The Criterion Center.
Brother Hank was loved and respected by all he came into contact with, he was always there to lend a helping hand.
Brother Hank is survived by his wife Catherine Helgeson, his son Henry, daughter-in-law Savannah and his grandsons Finn and Dax Helgeson.
A Celebration of Life will take place in New York and announced in the future.
Brother Hank will be missed by family and friends alike. May his soul Rest in Peace.
