PRINCETON, NJ -- Henry Fielden Clancy, 81, died peacefully at home surrounded by his family on January 11, 2014. Henry was born in New York City on June 7th, 1932 to Theresa Dean and Henry John Clancy. A graduate of All Hallows High School '50 and the University of Notre Dame '54, he began his career as a Chemical Engineer spending 41 years at American Cyanamid. During this time, he traveled the globe living in Mexico, Brazil and India before settling in Princeton, NJ to raise a family with his beloved wife Pat. Upon retirement from Cyanamid, he consulted as an environmental and safety engineer at ERM in Ewing, NJ. A lover of golf, Henry spent much of his free time at the Bedens Brook Club cultivating friendships, renovating the clubhouse and occasionally landing a hole in one. His deep faith compelled him to a lifetime of charitable work both locally as well as globally. One of Henry's proudest moments was spending time with Mother Theresa during one of his many trips to India. His genuine love of life, sense of humor, good nature and kind spirit were evident in each and every interaction he had. He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Pat, his children Henry, Melissa, Jonathan and Christina as well as his cherished grandchildren Margot, Ellie and Charlotte. Visiting hours will be 6-9 pm Wednesday at Mather-Hodge Funeral Home, 40 Vandeventer Avenue, Princeton.
