Obituaries » Henry E. Wulster

Henry E. Wulster passed away at his home in Denville on Friday, February 5, 2021 at the age of 60.

He was born on April 13, 1960 with his twin sister in Ridgewood, and grew up in Upper Saddle River, New Jersey.

Henry’s greatest pride was being a dedicated father. It was his mission to show up for his children and make sure they knew how much they were loved by Henry. He had an extraordinarily deep love and commitment to his children, as well as all the children in the entire family.

Henry was an avid outdoorsman, who was an expert hunter and fisherman. He took great pride in teaching his nieces and nephews the ins and outs of fishing, hunting, and tracking. He found great peace and serenity in the woods. He enjoyed both the game and the silence of a golf course, and loved playing games, especially cards.

Henry was a passionate student of history and sports. He was gifted with the ability to have a conversation on a vast number of subjects. He was a strong competitor. His athletic abilities were well recognized as a three-sport varsity athlete in high school. Henry was a member of the Lamda Chi Alpha Fraternity at Franklin and Marshall College. He is remembered by his fraternity brothers as a remarkably kind man, a powerful athlete, and a great leader, as the Captain of their football team.
He was a professional actor, appearing in over 200 shows and movies throughout his career. Henry was a member of the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists as well as the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees.
Henry is predeceased by his parents, Henry E. Wulster and Teresa V. Quinn.

He is survived by his sons Brady Wulster and Brian Chapman, and his grandson Nathan, as well as a large extended family, including his partner Barbara, and her two children, his five sisters, Teresa Wulster and her husband, David Ray, Wanda Butler and her husband, John, Jersey A. Wulster, his twin Patricia Best and her husband, James, and Diane E. Dooley. He leaves behind a legacy of generosity, kindness, wisdom, and humor to his treasured 18 nieces and nephews, and three great nieces and nephews.

Henry was known by several different names in the family; Dad, Brother, Harv, Uncle Harv, Dude and Uncle Dude, to name a few. He had a great sense of humor who always brought laughter into a home. He loved good competition and was known for creating games and challenges for the kids at every family event. He was a simple man, whose humble wisdom taught the 20 children of his entire family to never forget that what matters most in your life is: “Who shows up, and who you show up for.”

Henry was dedicated to his family and friends and was always available to them when needed. He is greatly loved and will be dearly missed.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend his Memorial Mass at 2:30p.m. on Friday, March 5, 2021 at Saint Mary’s R.C. Church. 15 Myers Avenue, Denville, NJ 07834. Following current Covid-19 guidelines, masks and social distancing are required at the mass. The family acknowledges and understands that some will not attend public gatherings at this time and will be unable to attend the mass. We ask that you keep the family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
