Henry had many interests including: fishing, barbecuing, reading, movies and hanging out in his garage, working on projects. He was a man of simple means and was very kind and giving. Henry was a brilliant man who would do anything for anyone; he will be truly missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.
There will be a private family graveside service at a later date.
