Henry “Hank” Arment, a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and respected member of the community, passed away peacefully on February 15, 2024. He was 86 years old.

Born on April 29, 1937, in Philadelphia, PA, Henry lived his entire life in Trevose, PA and was a proud graduate of Bensalem High School. He dedicated his life to his family and serving the community he called home.

His grandchildren, Matthew and Christopher, were a source of immense pride and joy in his life. Henry was preceded in death by his wife, Jennie, in 2023, and his parents Larry and Gertrude.

Henry worked for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as a foreman of grounds at Eastern State School and Hospital. A great day at work for him was cutting the grass from a tractor in the hot summer sun. In retirement he continued to work part time as a park ranger for Bensalem Township.

Henry served his community for 70 years as a volunteer fireman and later fire police as a member of Trevose Fire Company. He was a Life member of the fire company having served in various leadership roles including Trustee, Assistant Chief, and most recently Captain of the Fire Police.

A former Bensalem High School football player Henry continued to follow all the local sports from Bensalem High School, Penn State, Phillies, Eagles, Flyers, and Sixers.
