I first met Henry at a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce meeting where I was the guest speaker. I will always remember his coming up to me and complimenting me on my presentation. He was so kind and complimentary. I know it was sincere because he took the time to ask me questions and expand on some of the points that I had made. It was because of his warm friendly demeanor that I decide to become a member of the Chamber.
I have missed seeing Henry lately because of his illness, but he will always remain in my heart and mind as that kind, gentleman of integrity.

I will miss Henry very much. I am so thankful for Henry bringing me into the family business and allowing me to learn a trade and become a craftsman in the Pre-press and Print Industry. I worked for Henry and Mary from 1987 to 2000. I have since gone on to manage in some of the largest print companies in the world thanks to all the Corona family allowing me this opportunity. I have many wonderful memories of Hank and pray for him, Mary and my cousins! God bless the Corona Family....your Cuz, Frank

I was surprised and sorry , that Henry, passed on. I Read of his passing this AM in KC Star. Henry, helped me immensely in 1977, by letting my employees, use his scanner after hours to do our graphic arts work. Our equipment was out of order, waiting for a part from the UK. . We were competitors in the business." WOW", what a gracious thing to do. God bless you Henry. My condolences to Mary ,Mike and Liz, whom I knew, and other family members.
Thank you, Jerry Sellinger

Henry was a very kind and generous man. He was great to work with at the Hispanic Chamber, a great family man, a perfectionist in his business. He was a man of integrity, and left a huge imprint on the Hispanic Community. Henry will be missed, may he rest in peace, and God give his family peace, comfort, and strength in the coming days. Prayers for you all, Sincerely Helen Gonzalez-Cortissoz.

Henry I first met years ago , my grandfather knew him well in his younger days. He had many good things to say about Henry’s integrity and kindness. I found that Henry was all that and more, a true leader and friend to many . I appreciated the honesty and true friendship I came to know . I consider Henry to be one of the most committed individuals I knew within the community whose efforts empowered many generations to come. I am grateful for his family a their generosity in sharing him with all of us who had the blessing of his friendship. God bless you all and my prayers are with you.
Respectfully,
Annalisa

Our condolence to the Corona Family.
I grew up next door to "Hank" parents and saw his beautiful family grow-up before my eyes.
I saw "Hank" during the last few years of his Mother's life, as a devoted son, taking care of his Mother before she passed, as she wished to stay in her own home and he carried out those wishes.
Mary & family may you find comfort in your memories and God hold you in the palm of his hand in the days ahead.
