Henry P. Segal of Princeton died on Dec. 2. He was 87. Born Nov. 25 of 1934, Hank was raised in New York City. As an adult, he moved to Connecticut, where he lived for many years and raised his daughters, Dawn and Amanda. He later moved to Long Island before retiring to Princeton.

Hank spent most of his working life in the telecommunications field, which provided him the opportunity to travel extensively throughout the world. While living in Connecticut and on Long Island, he was an avid sailor and also enjoyed skiing.

Participating as a docent provided him with years of pleasure and pride, as well as an opportunity to make many wonderful new friends. He was also an active member of the Princeton Freewheelers for many years.

Hank is predeceased by his daughter Amanda Palumbo, and is survived by his wife Theresa Masters, daughter Dawn Segal, and grandchildren Jake and Lily Segal, Ariana O Neil and Erica Guarnaccia, and two great-granddaughters, Analise and Leanna O Neil.
