Henry Utzinger

February 16, 2024


Henry A. Utzinger of Blandford MA, passed away on February 16th after his short battle with pancreatic cancer. He was preceded by his parents, Albert F. Utzinger and Martha (Dennis) Utzinger of Southwick MA, and brother Carl F. Utzinger of Springfield MA. He leaves behind his wife of 30 years, Edna S. Utzinger and their 6 children Michelle Utzinger, Melissa Utzinger, Lisa Shen, Adam Sheran, Samantha Ballard, and Amanda Sheran, along with 11 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren, and his brother, Richard W. Utzinger of Southwick MA. Henry grew up in Southwick and graduated from Springfield Technical Academy in 1961. He joined the Army Reserves and served for 6 years. Henry enjoyed lending a helping hand working with Sears Roebuck and Company for 12 years. He loved his community and ran Ed’s Appliance and Home Improvement in Huntington MA for 7 years before joining the postal service as a rural carrier in Blandford MA. He was a hardworking man, spending many long days working his farm and building and maintaining his homes. He was a skilled carpenter, always working with his hands and keeping busy throughout his retirement in Oakfield ME. Anyone who knew Henry knew that he was a lover of life. He enjoyed antique car shows, swap meets, auctions, snowmobiling, and riding his motorcycle with his wife and friends. He was always hunting for the best bargain and could never pass up a deal on a Scag mower, even if he already owned 3. He was known for his generosity and kind nature, always there to help anyone in need, even strangers. He was a well-loved friend, father, and husband. We will miss his many long stories and loveable grin.
His visitation will be on Saturday February 24, 2024 from 10am – 12pm in Southwick Forastiere Funeral & Cremation, 624 College Hwy, Southwick, MA. To leave an online condolence visit
