From a young age Henry worked hard and enjoyed being outside. Thoughts of Henry usually included woodpiles, power saws, trucks and dogs. As a heavy equipment operator he worked in road construction and snow removal. Henry was strong willed, had an amazing work ethic, a kind heart and a great sense of fun. He valued time with family and friends playing cards and entertaining us all with his wonderful story-telling skills.
Cremation has taken place and there will be a private family graveside service.
