Boardman – Henry Joseph “Hank” Gourley Jr., 81, of Boardman, peacefully passed away early Saturday morning, October 21, 2023, surrounded by his loving family.
Hank will always be remembered as an outgoing family man who never met a stranger. He was born October 12, 1942, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the son of Henry Joseph Sr. and Mary (Stiegler). He grew up in the Akron area and then moved to Boardman in 1966.
After graduating from Archbishop Hoban High School, Hank continued his education attending classes at Youngstown State University and Kent State University. He had a lengthy career as a sales representative of business office supplies and forms, which he did until his illness prevented continuing on.
Henry was a member of St. Charles Borromeo Church, the Knights of Columbus, and many bowling and golf leagues. He was a football enthusiast always rooting for his favorite teams, The Ohio State Buckeyes and Cleveland Browns.
Hank was extremely proud of his family. He leaves behind to hold onto his memories his beloved wife of over 59 years, the former Patricia Connell whom he married on December 28, 1963; his three daughters whom he adored, Elizabeth (Dylan) Wingo of Ellicott City, Maryland, Meghan Gourley of Frederick, Maryland, and Lisa Gourley of Rancho Cucamonga, California; his grandson Noah Wingo; and a sister Marilyn (Tom) Mazzei of Akron, along with many grand-dogs, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother John “Jack” Gourley.
