<p>Henry (Hank) E. Birkhead Jr., aged 52, passed away suddenly on Saturday, June 8, 2024, while deep-sea fishing in Barnegat Light, NJ. Hank was born at Montgomery Hospital in Norristown, PA, to the late Linda Carol Birkhead (Aigledinger) and Henry Birkhead Sr. Hank is survived by his girlfriend of 13 years, Mary Runco, his younger sister Christine Reese (Birkhead), and her children, Kayla and Maxwell. He is also survived by his maternal aunt and two cousins in Wyndmoor, PA, a maternal uncle in Maine, and two step-sisters, Diana and Lori. </p><p>Hank graduated from Upper Merion High School, Class of 1989, and worked as a highly skilled tri-axle truck driver for C&amp;R Outdoor Services.

Hank was also affiliated with the Swedesburg Fire Company, Valley Forge Fire Company, Royersford Fire Company, AOH Club, and the VFW. </p><p>Hank’s love for the Philadelphia Eagles and zest for life were inspiring.
