On August 4th we lost a lifelong friend; it was not expected & it hurts.

Deb first met Henry in 1975 as we all worked at the telephone company. Although I left after 12 years, Deb stayed for 30 years retiring in 2003 & Henry recently retired three years ago after nearly 40 years of service with the telephone company.

I met him in 1975 when we were playing softball at a company event. I hit a ball into right field which looked certain to drop but Henry had reacted to the sound of the bat & made a fabulous catch to rob me of a certain single. He later said he was just lucky but that’s not the case. Henry was always self-effacing & deflected praise he was given but we all knew he was a great guy.

In 1986, Henry asked us to join the Phoenician League & we are still there 32 years later. It will be incredibly hard without him this coming season.

Although we had gone places together such as ASU football, Disneyland & Las Vegas in earlier years, starting in 1995 Henry began to travel with us on a regular basis with other friends and/or with our god-children, nieces & nephews. All together we visited 25 states, the District of Columbia as well as four Canadian provinces by land, air, & sea. We had great times in each place we traveled finding dim sum for Henry, an English teahouse for Deb, & miniature golf for me. We had just returned from a trip in June to Door County in Wisconsin & were planning the next adventure to the Carolina’s Great Smoky Mountains which alas will not come to fruition.

Henry was often at our home on weekends or for holidays. He would swing by to grab a bite to eat, play cards or a board game, or watch movies. He liked to play chess with me or one of my nephews. The kids always loved his “red” envelopes at graduation, birthdays & Christmas.

After 43½ years of friendship Henry was more than a friend; he was a brother & favorite Uncle to the kids. He was family & we grieve his loss.

Hommer – we shall miss you dearly.

Henry,

We were incredibly saddened to hear about your passing.

Although you could be ornery about certain things, you were always great company. You always had a twinkle in your eye when you updated me about your casino trips with a picture to boot. I enjoyed all your stories you shared. I will miss hearing your giggle across the bowling alley, your random texts around 2am & being your doubles partner.

I appreciated your prayers, kind words, support & most importantly, your friendship.

Rest Easy, Henry. Give Craney a hug for us.

You truly will be missed.

Love,
Edward, Mandy, Tommy & Donoven
