Dedicated to the Preservation of the
U.S. Air Force Helicopter History
Henry (Hank) Wirth, USAF
December 19, 1931 – January 26, 2022
Henry “Hank” Wirth died Wednesday, January 26, in West St. Louis County.
Hank was known throughout his hometown for providing “good old fashion friendly service” at Wirth Service, a full-service gas station which he owned and operated for more than 40 years. If a car was in need of repair or a fill-up of gas, or if an area farm needed food for its horses, Hank would deliver. It was more than a gas station; it was a local institution.
Henry is a veteran of the Korean War, serving in the US Air Force as a Helicopter Mechanic stationed in Guam.
Henry is survived by his wife, Dorothy, his three sons Bill, Dan and Paul and their wives, six grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
Services: At his request, no service will be held. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Wings of Hope. A service of the SCHRADER Funeral Home and Crematory. Friends may sign the family’s on-line guestbook at Schrader.com.
