So sorry to learn of the death of Henry LaPrade. My late husband, Arthur and I were in church with Henry, Lillian and family a number of years. Henry was a true Christian and was a witness to so many along his journey in life. He will be sorely missed. My sincere sympathy and prayers go out to Lillian and family. May God fill the void you feel today and in the days to come with His great love and peace.

Having worked around Fuzz at DuPont, I will remember him as an easy going amiable man, he gained respect from those who were around him by his actions and words. After leaving the plant and working with bereaved people for the funeral home, his easy going manners were calming to many. Our prayers and condolences go out to Lillian, Dawn and rest of family. He will be missed.
