The three Aunts - Tia Lila (Marshall), Tia Julie (Phillips), and Tia Flor (Seda) are heartbroken over the lost of their beloved nephew Henry (Queque). Henry was the son of their sister - Lucy (Campla) deceased. He was always a happy and good natured young man. During his teens, Henry would spend much time at Tia Flor’s house hanging out with the cousins - especially with Luis. They would get into lots of crazy adventures...but the Aunts always loving gave him a place to sleep...and he would avoid getting into trouble by charming them with his humor and sweet personality. As the years passed, the Aunts were always happy to see him...he was great at having conversations in Spanish - always sharing wonderful stories and funny jokes. They thought Henry was a great Salesman and helped made his parents Men’s shop a success. During recent years he would come spend holidays/celebrations with the Aunts...always very cheerful. The Aunts were pleasantly surprised to receive cards with lottery tickets in them...arriving during different holidays for the past couple of years. Henry never forgot his three Aunts...and they will never forget him❣️Love and kisses to dear Queque ❤️ from Tia Lila, Tia Julie and Tia Flor

I knew Henry when he and Vickie were together. He was such a likeable guy and fun to be around. I remember going to his folks place and his dad being a Taylor and how nice his mom and dad and the rest of his family were too. I was married to Vickie’s brother Harry at that time. I know he will be missed by many.

Cousin:

I vividly recall the first time we met when you arrived from Chile and we welcomed you and your family.

I remember all of the adventures we had when we were young.

I still enjoy memories of your boys playing with mine.

I miss you, but look forward to seeing you again soon!

To the family of Henry Campla:
I was very sad to learn of the death of Henry. He was always so kind and friendly to my husband & me when we would go into his parents shop on Beach Blvd. He was always so patient and helpful--he was truly a gentleman, just like his father before him. Please let me know if a memorial service is planned for him. My sincerest condolences to all his family. Diane Guy
