 RAVENA -- Henry “Hank” Thomas Mormile, Jr. of Ravena passed away peacefully, after a long illness, on Sunday, June 16 at Albany Medical Center Hospital surrounded by his loving family. He was 87.

Born on September 23, 1931 in Coeymans, New York, he was the son of the late Ida Mastropietro and Henry T. Mormile, Sr. He attended Coeymans High School and left high school to help care for his family. He joined the US Navy in October 1950 and fought in the Korean War. After returning home from War, he worked for Hank Graves (alongside his father) on construction and began his own business as a master carpenter in 1960. Many people in the community were privileged to live in a home or addition Hank constructed throughout his years as a master carpenter.

Hank was an active member of the community. He was a President of Hudson Valley Little League and brought Miss Softball into our community, was Boy Scout Leader and later became Commissioner, was a life member of the VFW Post #959, the Greater Ravena Lions’ Club and a member of the Ravena Grange. He was also a Town Assessor during the 1970s and then was Town of Coeymans Building Inspector. He continued for many years on the Board of Assessment Review. Hank was a communicant of St. Patrick’s Church his entire life and served on the Parish Council as a Eucharistic Minister, member of the Finance Committee, Building Committee, and counter. Hank was an avid bowler and loved to golf and was the President of two senior leagues, Sunny Hill and Thunderheart.

Hank met the love of his life Janice Albright in 1955 at the Beck’s Roller Rink and they were married on July 1, 1956. He and his bride spent almost 63 years together. Hank’s other love were his children and grandchildren. He is survived by his five children, Margaret (Scott) Meyer, Loraine (Chip) Bolen, Susan (Chris) Mielke, Judy (Brian) Zdgiebloski and Henry (Michelle Ewert) Mormile and his seven grandchildren, Zach (Caitlyn) Bolen, James and Gabrielle Bolen, Audrey Mielke, Christopher and Stephen Roberts and Wyatt Mormile. He most loved helping his children with any project that needed his expertise. Hank is also survived by his two sisters, Clara Altimari and Rose Anatriello and many nieces and nephews.
