Henry Andrew Breese, 73, of Lockwood Lodge in Sandy Hook died April 8. He was born  October 2, 1944, and lived most of his life in New Brunswick, N.J. He was the son of Abraham and Alice Day Breese.


His brother-in-law, Richard Kovacs of Newtown; sister and brother-in-law, Loretta and John Rivera of Margate, Fla.; brothers, Joseph and wife Fran, Abraham and wife Marge, and Edward and wife Barbara, all of New Jersey; and many nephews and nieces survive him.


His sister, Margaret Kovacs, predeceased him.


Mr Breese was known as a very kind and generous person his entire life. He never owned a car and walked everywhere as a city dweller. His favorite haunts were Dunkin' Donuts, Shop-Rite, and Walmart. Mr Breese retired from the Rutgers University Dining Services after about 30 years of service. He also volunteered on a part-time basis at the New Brunswick Senior Center for many years. He was the landlord of his two- family home in New Brunswick for many years.


Friends may call Thursday, April 12, from 5 to 7 pm, in the Honan Funeral Home, 58 Main Street, Newtown, followed by a funeral service.
