I am sorry I could not make it down to Sparta. I wish we could have meet one more time. A good soul like Henry’s will live on forever. I remember him as a great advocate and interceder for justice and the rules of order and well being. He was truly a man of peace and I loved him for that. The Lord needs men like him to be by his side; he was a true friend of Jesus and brother to many. There is a secret I know of what makes men embrace. I only need to see the back of its head at a distance in a crowd. The secret I know is that it is Henry who knows the secret like I. Peace brother, Peace

Walking to Boylan Street pool with towels rolled up under our arms. Softball at Myrtle Ave School. Football in the street. Poker in the basement. Most embarrassing time was breaking his arm tripping over a curb, he lied and told everyone he broke it playing football. Rest easy Hank and say hello to Gene for us. The Cisco's

When you were going to college to study engineering you got me a notebook with the schools logo on it and I thought that was so cool!!!
Every time I got sunburned you would tell me to go warm up the water for you.
Love you

I worked for Henry many years ago. always a man of integrity loving and fair in assignment and evaluation. He separated work from home such that I never felt any strain in his decision-making about what was needed at the workplace. He mentored me by lifestyle example, during the time I raised my two daughters. To the family and loved ones, may the comforts of Christ sustain you during this time of loss. Love, Scott W. Holloman

Oh, Henry...
when we got the news I couldn't believe it! John and I were looking forward to hanging out with you and Barbara down the shore so John could regale you with all his videos of his latest trip!!
All the years at the arsenal, introducing us to Unit 109 and then "suggesting" John run for the board when we had gotten our own unit.
To his family KNOW he is out of pain and safe with the God he loved and served and is reunited with those who have gone before.
Miss our talks and peace and healing to the family

Henry departed this life and joined his mother, father and brother Eugene up in Heaven. He will live forever in all of our hearts and in our memories. He was loved by so many and touch so many peoples lifes. He loved his family, his wife and two daughters-Kristin and Caroline. And his two grandchildren- Thomas and Alexandra. He was a great husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, brother, brother in law, uncle, friend.

Always had nothing but kind words about everyone.

He loved going to Wildwood Crest and spending time with family and friends. And his family meant the world to him.
He will be missed by all who knew him. He was an incredible man and was deeply loved by all.
RIP Henry - We love you
💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕
With fond memories of all the family BBQ's and all the Christmas dinners at our house and at the Marriott. Loved watching Henry get down on the floor playing with Thomas and Alexandra. You could see how much he loved his grandkids. He was so proud of his two daughters, Kristin and Caroline. And loved them so much.

He loved meeting up with his two brothers Jimmy and Paul down in Wildwood. They would go swimming in the ocean, walking and talking on the beach. How he loved being down there.

May God give us all, the strenght to get through this differcult time.
💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔
"Eternal rest grant to him, O Lord; and let light perpetual shine upon him. May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace."
