Harry Singleton Gretz

A great man died-August 29,2015. 

Harry Singleton Gretz was born on October 23,1942. The son of Mary Bacon and William Charles
Gretz,III of Abington,PA, Harry was the second of five children. He 
grew up in the realms of the Gretz Beer Dynasty (Philadelphia) and could
always amuse us with outlandish tales-blowing up the prep school 
bathroom with his brother Butch, lighting a campfire-in his bedroom, and
the parade of his pet ducks during a formal dinner with the Anheuser-Busch 
families. 

Harry was the quintessential self-made man. He started Trans-American Equipment Corp. 30 
years ago and grew it into an industry-leading forklift sales and rental
company. He was widely known and greatly respected within the industry. Harry 
was also a founding member of the Charlotte Queens Cup Steeplechase, a member 
of both Firethorne Country Club, Marvin,NC and the Vesper Club of Philadelphia. 
However, Harry's true legacy is his family. He is survived by his wife 
of 31 years,Stephanie Spires Gretz of Weddington, NC. A daughter, Dawn D. 
Gretz of Brooklyn,NY. The mother of his children, Marian C. Gretz 
of Swarthmore,PA. His daughter Wendi Gretz(Scott)of Atlanta,GA and a 
son, Brian Gretz(Trude)of Wesley Chapel,NC. Sister-in-law,Paula Elias(Richard)of Encino CA,and 
two sisters, Margorie Rossi and Susan Fletcher of Abington, PA, along with numerous
nieces and nephews. 

Harry's greatest achievement was receiving the unbridled love and respect of his 
grandchildren -Anna, Megan, Benjamin and Caroline "noodles" Gretz. How 
blessed we are to live so close to Grand-Pop and Grammy and be able to 
create many loving memories that time will never erase. 

We would like to thank Stephanie Gretz for many years as Harry's wife and 
caregiver and for donating a kidney to Harry, thereby giving us precious additional
years to build memories. We offer a special thanks to Dr. Christopher Buehrig 
and staff. Your dedication and commitment to Harry's care has been 
without borders and we are so deeply grateful. He was proud to call you a 
friend. Our heartfelt thanks also to the Union Co. EMS personnel for their heroic efforts
and to the Union Co. Sheriff officers for their immeasurable compassion and respect.

Lastly, we would be remiss if we did not mention the truly greatest love of Harry's
life-anything furry. Harry loved all creatures, but none so much as his precious 4 cats.
Therefore, in lieu of flowers, Harry would be honored if you would make donations to the 
Humane Society of Union & Mecklenburg Counties, the Angel's Dog Rescue and Adoption,
or to a charity of your choice.
