In better times, Henry enjoyed fishing, family and his furry companions. He was a soldier till the end; a gentle-yet-hardened man who always saw life as an opportunity to better oneself. He raised his children to be survivors and productive members of society while caring for others along the way. His tour of duty has ended, we hope and pray Dad has found eternal peace amidst family, fallen friends and comrades. Rest easy and God Bless.
