Henry Limer Sadler

March 6, 1952December 18, 2019

Henry Limer Sadler, 67, went to be with his Lord and Savior on December 18, 2019.

Henry is survived by the love of his life, Linda Calos Sadler, whom he wed in 1978; two daughters, Sarah Edith Sadler of Greensboro and Maria Sadler Burton of Raleigh; two grandsons, Jack and Jordan Burton; son-in-law Michael Burton; mother-in-law Margaret Calos of Danville; sisters-in-law Laurie Dishman, Lisa Salita, and Katherine Calos; and cousins Pat Adcock, Frankie Rivers, and Karen Rivers. He was predeceased by his mother Lois Rivers Sadler, sister Virginia Edith Sadler, and father Henry Limer Sadler.

Born in 1952 in Littleton, NC, Henry graduated from Littleton High School and attended North Carolina State University. He retired after 32 years working at NC A&T University. A long-time member of Hinshaw United Methodist Church in Greensboro, Henry served his Lord as he served others tirelessly and faithfully. Named along with Linda in 2017 as Hinshaw’s Lay Person of the Year, Henry was actively involved for many years with the Appalachian Service Project and Greensboro Urban Ministries. He cooked and baked for many community, church, and mission events, and was a delivery driver for Hinshaw’s Hot Dog Tuesday program for the past three years.

Dedicated. And reliable. And kind. And loving. Henry was a man of few words (except for corny jokes) but the way that he lived his life every day spoke volumes.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, December 21 at Hinshaw United Methodist Church in Greensboro at 11:00; the family will receive visitors at the church beginning at 10:00 on Saturday morning.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to Hinshaw United Methodist Church, 4501 W. Gate City Blvd., Greensboro, NC 27407.

Henry and I worked very closely together in the early 80's at North Carolina A&T State University while putting up their first financial accounting system. Sometimes we may have had a few jokes, but when it was time to work it was all business. A few of us got together to watch two professional boxing bouts at different times. One was at my house when I lived near Holden and Vandalia Roads. Henry came over and we had a great time. I know A&T missed him when he retired. I know many of his co-workers will miss his physical presence. I will miss a friend. "Weeping may endure for a night, but JOY will come in the morning". Praying for the family.

Goodbye old friend - we grew up together, rode our bicycles in our youth and spent many of hours together playing, working in tobacco, played football together, shared an apartment for many years in Raleigh, I was honored by serving as your best man at your wedding - then we grew apart as you started your family and moved away. I know you were a great husband and father and my prayers go out to Linda and the rest of your family.

My heart goes out to the family as they remember all the good times you’ve had the joy of sharing with Doc as I’ve called him for many decades. He was the brother of my best friend, therefore a brother from another mother. He was a fine example of a good caring character who contributed much in his community.
I send my love and prayers as you deal with your loss and celebrate his life.
