I knew Henry through Fairfax jugglers and the IJA. He was a gifted artist who was dedicated to his craft. During many of the conventions events, while others were enjoying the live events, he was unselfishly videotaping it. His volunteer work was noticed and appreciated. I am blessed to have known him.

Henry was my cousin and even though he was a couple of years older than me, I feel bad that we didn't keep in touch.
At family gatherings, he would entertain with great magic tricks, juggling, and he could ride a unicycle. We would have competitions playing with the Rubik's cube and Nintendo games.
Rest in peace Henry. Love u Chad

We remember the twinkling planetarium-like lights in an upstairs room that Henry decorated as part of one very special Christmas season. It was magical. Always kind, always gentle, always caring about others in his own special and modest way. Rest in peace, dear Henry.

We will remember Henry as a much loved and dedicated son. Whether helping Doug and Kathy at work or at home, Henry seemed to us to be the “project manager” that was always there to get things done. There were many so good times to remember at the Benton’s. And in particular, I will always remember the little techie talks with Henry and learned early on that Henry had a great curiosity and a sincere desire to learn about “how things worked”. It is so sad to lose someone so young. Henry will be remembered and missed.

Henry was a well loved son and will be greatly missed. I can see the glow of Christmas lights in Henry's proud eyes as we watch him light up the outside of the house. While we all were eating cotton candy, Henry and his mom were riding the wild and thrilling rides at the county fair. We all enjoyed the warm Krispy Kreme donuts!
Even though our daughter and Henry were born the same year, they didn't attend school together until they were freshman in college.
While in Orlando attending a high school orchestra competition that our granddaughter played the cello in Disneyworld Resort and the next year her choral and dance competition in Universal Studios Park, Henry joined us giving us a wonderful magical tour. He knew all the fun rides, had special passes, and discounts to restaurants and gift shops. He was so patient with all of us and we couldn't have had a better time. Memories bless us-thank you Henry!
We love you and miss you, Aunt Ann, Uncle Charles, and family ♥️

Henry was a thoughtful , happy, and grateful young man to have his life terminated too soon. He loved going to Disney and occompning novices like me and Kristin around the park and pointing out the features he knew so well. We will miss him on our many visits to Florida .
