Henry united in holy matrimony with Lorine Williams on November 24, 1967 in Racine, WI. Their union was blessed with four children, Henry’s son, Tracy (Niagara Falls, NY); along with their three daughters, Regina, Sonya and Cheryl (All of Racine, WI). The couple has celebrated fifty-one years of love.
He was employed by Consumer Steel/Racine Recycling as a Crane Machine Operator for over thirty years. Henry loved his hats and collected many. He was a competitor and loved to play Connect Four and Checkers with his children and grandchildren. Henry was a great sketch artist and spent time enjoying coloring contests with his girls. Traveling to Wisconsin Dells for the annual family reunions with his family was a joy.
Henry served as a faithful member and board member of New Covenant Church for over seventeen years. His presence was a delight, because his gift of encouragement blessed many.
