Henry C. Cirit, age 83 of Whitehouse Station died unexpectedly at his home on Wednesday, May 4, 2022. 

Born in Jersey City, he was the son of the late Henry and Anne Cirit.

Henry was a proud veteran of the United States Army. He worked as a Mechanical Engineer for Courter & Co for 25 years and later with Durr Mechanical in New York City for 25 years. One of Henry’s proudest accomplishments was working on the original World Trade Center.

He was a devout catholic and belonged to Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Whitehouse Station.  Henry was kind and generous and and would go out of his way to give a helping hand.  He loved his Golden Doodle Louie and enjoyed feeding the birds and tinkering with his fish pond.  He had a great appreciation for nature and especially loved spending time in the gardens he meticulously nurtured.  Above all, Henry cherished his family and was his happiest when surrounded by his “three girls”.
