We were deeply to sorry to hear that Henry passed away. He was a
fine Christian man who always had a smile on his face. He took care
of air conditioning needs for over 42 years. Henry was always friendly and always in a great mood. We know that he will be missed by many people. May God bless the entire Schroeder family
during your time of loss.

I have known Henry for many years, and during those years we have become very good friends. Never was there a time when I needed air conditioning help did he not come or send another to help. He always came to my house with a smile and friendly greeting and a joke or two about my hot attic he was starting to enter. I would listen for him to come down and be ready to hand him a towel and water. We would talk and laugh again about his wet clothes, and we would shake hands and he would be on his way. My deepest sympathies to his families, he will be missed.

Henry was a dear neighbor and friend. He was never too busy to help me when I needed him. A kind and holy man.
My prayers and deepest sympathy to his family
