Henry William Lomas, 66, passed away suddenly on November 16, 2022, at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Camden, NJ.
Henry was born on January 5, 1956 in Camden, NJ to Joseph and Mary Lomas.
Henry attended Magnolia Public School and Sterling High School graduating in 1974. Henry started his career in the residential heating and cooling business and was then accepted into the Philadelphia Sheet Metal Local Union 19 apprenticeship program in the early 80's. Henry worked for 40 years with several employers within the union, rarely missing a day's work. Henry was enjoying a well-deserved retirement.
Henry met his love, Eileen Hannigan, in the late 70's and they married on October 15, 1983 at the St. Denis Chapel in Havertown, PA. The couple had 2 children, Kimberly Accardo and Jack Lomas. They were his pride and joy.
Upon retirement, Henry could either be found working out at the gym, riding his bike, reading the newspaper, walking his dogs Missy & Penny, manicuring the yard and garden, cleaning his truck or helping someone fix something but his favorite activity was being PopPop to his grandbabies. Nothing brought him more joy.
Henry is survived by his spouse Eileen Lomas, children Kimberly Accardo (Mike) and Jack Lomas (Gaby), brothers Joe Lomas (Louise) and Jim Lomas (Elise), and his beloved grandchildren Dominic, Logan, Ellie and soon to be born Alex Henry Lomas. He is also survived by so many nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and neighbors. He will be missed by all.
Henry is preceded in death by his parents Joseph and Mary Lomas, brother, John "Jack" Lomas and sister Dolores McFarland.

My mother married into the Lomas family when I was already in my early 20’s and although I am not “blood” Uncle Henry always treated me like I was. It’s a rare and beautiful gift I have always cherished and always will. My favorite memory of him is when I just arrived on a flight from Florida to visit. As I walked through the terminal, Uncle Henry popped out of one of the ceiling tiles in the airport to welcome me! He was working on a repair at the airport and was keeping watch to see when I arrived! That was many years ago and it still brings a huge smile to my face. I will cherish that memory forever. My love and prayers to Eileen, Kimberly and Jack. Tom and Wendy
