Michael Henry

Michael T. Henry, formerly of The Woodlands, Texas, and most recently, Williamsburg, Virginia, passed away on March 21, 2020 at age 63, in Williamsburg.

Mike was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado, son of Leon R. Henry and Catherine M. (Carr) Henry. He lived there until his teen years when the family moved to the Houston area. A proud graduate of Texas A&M University, Mike enjoyed a successful career in property tax consulting, working with clients in Texas and across the country, culminating in a partnership position at Ryan LLC. His expertise and professionalism were reflected by his selection to a leadership role in the Texas Association of Property Tax Professionals. He especially enjoyed the challenge of representing the industry before the Texas legislature, testifying before committees and commenting on proposed legislation.

Mike loved the outdoors, hunting in Colorado and Texas, traveling in Europe, tracing family roots in Ireland, and vacationing in Hawaii. “Uncle Mike” took a deep and personal interest in his nieces and nephews. He and his wife Janet attended numerous graduations, performances, and weddings. His thoughtfulness, good humor, and amazing storytelling ability provided support when needed and wise counsel when necessary. Michael was a friend to everyone he met.

Michael is survived by his loving wife of 29 years, Janet Henry and his father-in-law, Kenneth Smith, both of Williamsburg, VA. He leaves his brothers Leon M. Henry and wife Jeanne of Newport, RI, and William R. Henry and wife Susan, of Montgomery, AL. He also leaves ten nieces and nephews, five great-nieces and great-nephews, an aunt, and numerous cousins.

Funeral services will be private. A memorial service and celebration of life is planned at The Woodlands Memorial United Methodist Church, in the Woodlands, Texas, on a date to be determined.

Michael and I were very good friends but more than that we were Brothers. He was a good neighbor, kind and friendly to everyone he met. You could always depend that Mike would "Do the Right Thing". I also knew Mike as a Successful and accomplished Business Leader, respected by his clients and collogues.

Michael was also a strong Christian Man who actually lived his Christianity in everyday life and would not miss a Sunday at His Church. He loved his family and his dear wife Janet. He would do anything for his family.

My heart aches with the passing of Michael and I will miss him terribly but I know that without a doubt he is in the arms of Jesus and totally restored.

We are deeply saddened to hear of Mike's passing. He was a fine gentleman and a great neighbor and we feel lucky to have known him. We've missed him since they moved to Williamsburg. Please accept our deepest condolences at your loss. We are planning to attend the Memorial Service in The Woodlands when it occurs.
