He loved construction and built his very own home for himself and his family. Henry later served as a combat aerial photographer in Vietnam and was wounded in action. He enjoyed a career working at GE which took him to Alabama, where he met Sue, his wife. Henry was a loving husband and father, with nothing more important than his family.

He will be remembered for his sweet smile, his kindness to all, and his loyalty and love to family and friends.
