Obituary of Henry Nyce
Henry Edward Nyce was born on July 26, 1932 in Sellersville, PA to Lloyd and Madeline (Luehrs) Nyce, and is survived by his sister Ruth Yoder and brother John.
While a senior at Sell-Perk High School, Ed was set up on a blind date with Marjorie Kratz and quickly became inseparable. An early interest in radio and television led Ed to earn a degree in Technology Engineering at Temple University in Philadelphia. Ed and Marge married in Harlingen, TX in 1954 while Ed was in flight school with the Air Force. After flight school he became a navigator, taught technology and was discharged as a First Lieutenant. They eventually returned to Sellersville where Ed worked in sales for IBM and then as director of Information Services at Riegel Paper in Milford, NJ.
In 1973 the family moved to West Windsor, NJ when Ed joined Manufacturers Hanover Trust Company in New York City, eventually becoming Executive Vice President of Information Technology Services managing data centers and participating in the cutting edge of desktop computing, internet and the introduction of ATMs.
After retirement in 1993, Ed and Marge moved to Princeton and completed their goal of visiting all 50 states and six continents. For years they were avid fans and season ticket holders of Princeton’s men’s basketball. Ed could often be seen walking into town for the morning paper and coffee.
Five years ago, Marge and Ed moved to Stonebridge at Montgomery where he served on the Finance Committee and, recently, learned the art of collage.
Throughout their marriage Ed and Marge were very involved with the church. Shortly after moving to New Jersey they became one of several founding families of Windsor Chapel in West Windsor. And when they moved to Princeton, he was instrumental in the building of Stone Hill Church, faithfully serving as Project Manager. Both Ed and Marge contributed many hours of English practice and friendship to international students through International Students Inc.
Marge and Ed’s 64-year marriage was a visible example of their love and devotion to each other. He loved his grandchildren deeply and supported them in all of their interests, attending performances, sporting events, and graduations.
Ed is survived by his four children, Deborah Flanagan, Karen Bruno, Brenda Nyce-Taylor and Thomas Nyce, ten grandchildren and one great granddaughter.
