Although I have only had the pleasure of knowing Henry for a short time in his life, he made a lasting impression. Full of life and enjoying every moment he had been given, Henry was always willing to help whenever asked and touched every life he came into contact with in a special way. His second family at Home Depot will miss him. Your family is in my prayers.

Henry recorded this quote from 'All the King's Men' - "It is a human defect - to try to know oneself by the self of another. One can only know oneself in God and in His great eye".

Henry was loved by all his fellow associates @ the Home Depot 4612. It was a pleasure to see his smiling face whenever he came through the door. Enjoyed his strong opinion on sports and politics.

May God Bless Henry's family. There will be an empty seat in our breakroom at The Home Depot in the coming years, but it will be filled with Happy Memories. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Even though I knew Henry for only eight months it seems like a lifetime. He has diligently helped me on numerous occasions. When I needed help in coverage for the store, I could always count on Henry to come to me before I could even fix my lips to ask him for help. He went above and beyond!!! I will miss his smiling face, knee pads, and most of all seeing his name on paper here at the Home Depot. May you Rest In Peace because I know you are an angel smiling up above!!

Henry has worked with me for several years @The Home Depot. Henry always had a way of making me smile even when times were rough. He would always say, "What's up, REGGIE" with a pleasant greeting. He had no idea how much an impact this had on me especially during the rough times. I will sincerely miss Henry and his special conversations about sports. May you Rest in Peace....Reggie

  Phil and Family of Henry,
It was such a surprise to see one of our childhood friends of North End leaving us at such an early age. I will always remember Henry visiting our home on Huntington Avenue and all the fun he had with my brother Jay. If memory serves me, Henry was a member of the Color Guard for the NNHS Senior Band. He was a good friend to our Mother and will be missed by his Typhoon Friends.

In the 7 years that I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Henry, I can't recall him ever saying an unkind word about anyone. He was everyone's friend. May God bless and take care of you as you did your friends and fellow associates at Home Depot. I will truly miss my wingman. Henry, may you rest in peace.

I worked with Henry at The Home Depot from the day he started. He was always in a good mood and friendly to everyone he came across. Even though Henry had a good twenty plus years on me, we did have a love for music that was nearly identical and we always had something to talk about. Work just won't be the same without him.

  O Sacred Head Now Wounded

Text: Anonymous; trans. by Paul Gerhardt and James W. Alexander
Music: Hans L. Hassler, 1564-1612; harm. by J.S. Bach, 1685-1750

1. O sacred Head, now wounded,
with grief and shame weighed down,
now scornfully surrounded
with thorns, thine only crown:
how pale thou art with anguish,
with sore abuse and scorn!
How does that visage languish
which once was bright as morn!

2. What thou, my Lord, has suffered
was all for sinners' gain;
mine, mine was the transgression,
but thine the deadly pain.
Lo, here I fall, my Savior!
'Tis I deserve thy place;
look on me with thy favor,
vouchsafe to me thy grace.

3. What language shall I borrow
to thank thee, dearest friend,
for this thy dying sorrow,
thy pity without end?
O make me thine forever;
and should I fainting be,
Lord, let me never, never
outlive my love for thee.
