henry steinitz

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Henry J. Steinitz of
Brooklyn, NY. Formerly of Dix Hills, NY. Beloved son of Henry Steinitz Jr. and
Lori Biddiscombe. Beloved stepson to Henry Backer. Loving brother of Brittany
and Jerry Correa. Cherished grandson of Rosalie Steinitz. Dear nephew to Kevin
and Karen Biddiscombe, Bill and Beth Dunlap, and Susan and Alan Muller.
Henry was a person who touched the lives of everyone he met with his loving
soul, intelligence, kindness, and infectious laughter. He passed away on May 5,
2023, at the age of 30, leaving behind a legacy of love and warmth.
Born on April 14, 1993, Henry from an early age showed remarkable intelligence
and a keen interest in learning. He was an exceptional student throughout his
academic career, earning numerous awards and accolades for his academic
achievements. He pursued his passion for learning and went on to earn a
Bachelor of Science Degree with Honors in Mathematics from the University of
Chicago. Presently he was pursuing his Master of Science Degree from NYU in
Mathematics, with future aspirations in the field of Artificial Intelligence.
Despite his many accomplishments, he remained humble, always putting the
needs of others before his own. Henry was caring and devoted to his entire
family, always there to lend a helping hand or offer a word of encouragement.
Henry was adored by his cousins Christopher Walters, Alexander Dunlap &
Connor Biddiscombe, who will miss his laughter and his warm embrace. He was
deeply cherished by all his family, who took pride in his accomplishments and
loved him dearly.
Henry was a loyal and generous friend to all who knew him. He had a heart of
gold and was always there to listen, offer advice, or just share a good laugh. He
had a way of making everyone feel special and loved, and his presence in our
lives will be deeply missed.
He was taken from us far too soon, but his memory will live on in the hearts of all
who knew him. We take comfort in knowing that he is now at peace, reunited with
loved ones who have gone before him. We will always remember him as a
shining example of what it means to be a loving and caring human being.
Rest in peace, dear son, brother, grandchild, nephew, cousin, and friend. You will
be forever missed.
Henry cared deeply for helping others in need and was passionate about

Memories Timeline


  1. Our hearts are broken, but we chose to remember all the beautiful and happy memories we have, like trying to hold back a smile when he wants to bust out laughing at something you said, the joy of listening to him play his guitar and maybe he sang too, or maybe he just strummed with the song in his head. I remember how I heard a beautiful song on Connor’s guitar at our home and it was Henry playing. I loved it. I especially loved listening to him and Henry Backer jam together – way cool. I also remember how he helped Connor with late night math homework to help him out. I especially remember the love I saw in his eyes with his his adoring mom and sister Brittany. He was never boastful about himself. He loved life, adventure and amazing vacations with Brittany and his dad. I’m deeply saddened by his loss. There are no words sufficient to express our heartache, but I’m overjoyed with the beautiful memories of the life of an amazingly gifted, talented and brilliant man who we are blessed to have had as our nephew, and for Connor – his cousin. We love you….you will be missed.

  2. Words fail to express my deep sorrow for your loss. My heart goes out to the entire family.
    Wherever a beautiful soul has been, there is a trail of beautiful memories.

  3. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family – I am so incredibly sorry for your loss.

  4. Henry will be deeply missed by his colleagues. He will be forever remembered for his talent, curiosity, passion and a heart of gold. When I first interviewed Henry, he struck me as someone who is always eager to keep learning, pursing his passion in software engineering, AI and music. Henry also asked me a lot of questions about ethical considerations when building the AI product, demonstrating high moral integrity. With a heavy heart, I wish to give my sincere condolences Henry’s family.

  5. My cousin Henry was very special to me. He was an excellent older cousin; he was always very kind and loving to me. When I was younger we would often play soccer or football in Grandmas yard or go long boarding in Sun City. As I got older, we talked more frequently often about school and music and, occasionally he was my math tutor. I will always remember the way we would laugh and joke with one another those are the memories I treasure the most.

  6. In memory of a much loved boy. I don’t think he realized how many people loved him or how much we will miss him. As long as there is one of us left to remember him his memory will still be alive. Goodbye my beloved boy. From your heart broken grandmother.

  7. Having met Henry only once didn’t keep me from knowing what a kind hearted and loving man he was. He is so deeply loved by his family and always will be. The stories that are told about him are always in good humor and reflect the quirky and unique aspects of his personality. He will be dearly missed and leaves behind a gap not only in his family, but the world as a whole. My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

  8. Please accept my heartfelt condolences to you and your family, I’m sure that his memory will forever live on in your hearts.
