A proud US Marine Corp Veteran and West Tech High School Warrior,
Henry was a hard-working, loyal entrepreneur.
He was charismatic and liked by many, often remembered by his story telling.
He loved enjoying a casual cigar or glass of whiskey with close friends.
An avid motorcyclist, Henry enjoyed cross country trips on his Harley.
He really knew how to light up a room, was always kind-hearted and would give you the shirt off his back.
Henry will be greatly missed by all.
