A special thank you from the family to Sylvia and J.M. Massey, Janice and Russell Ward, Waiston and Dorothy Lee for all their love and support during these past months.
Henry was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He was a very hard-working man all his life doing mechanic work for Central Crop Research Station from where he retired. During his spare time, he enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren, where he took them down the path on the Kubota to go see his cows. He had a special passion for his Allis Chalmers tractor too. He will be surely missed but precious memories will forever remain in the hearts of those who know and loved him.
