I am so sorry to hear about Henry. I worked with Henry at L-3 for several years. His love of family, horses, and his car always was first with him. He was always able to be a calm person when some of the things around us were not calming. I really admired Henry. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with the family.

I am deeply saddened by Henry's passing. Henry was a wonderful man who had the ability to mix with anybody. On my arrival in Texas in 2005 I found myself working alongside Henry and did so for the next 8 years. We had many a long chat about all things from horses to race cars. A gentle giant who will be sorel missed. My thoughts and prayers are with Brenda and all of Henry's family and friends. RIP Henry

So sorry to hear of Henry's passing. Henry and I spent many hours on the New Zealand project, great guy to work with, very down to earth who could think outside the box.

Brenda, and family members, I am sorry for your loss. I enjoyed the times I had with Henry during my visits to Greenville and his trips to New Zealand, of course the conversation always drifted towards horses and his truck. One of Life's Gentleman, a real pleasure to have met him. Rest in peace Henry
