Henry grew up in Manitoba, he attended a country school 8 miles south of Winkler until Grade 8. Summers were spent hoeing sugar beets. When he was 17, he moved with his family to Saskatchewan. Henry started work at the Coca Cola Plant in Swift Current. Then on September 10, 1960 Henry married the love of his life Cecilia Grout. In 1961 Henry was baptized in his faith and did his best to live his life according to God’s Word. He loved to sing and share the gospel in travels. Henry & Cecilia were blessed with 4 children which they raised in Swift Current, SK. Henry worked at many different jobs over the years and owned a few businesses including Economy Window Cleaners & Supersharp Services – sharpening saw blades. Henry also worked for his brother-in-law Grant Tait doing construction. Henry loved visiting with friends and family telling many entertaining stories and always had a joke to keep everyone laughing. Henry & Cecilia traveled together with their children to see Niagra Falls in Ontario. In 2000 Henry & Cecilia traveled to Mexico to visit distant relatives. The trip of a lifetime for both was a trip to England to visit longtime special friends Chris & Christine King in 2005. Then Meadows was home for Henry for the last 8 months where he made fast friends with the residents and nursing staff who enjoyed his stories and sense of humor. Everyone seemed to always enjoy his company. Henry’s most important life lesson for his family and friends was to practice forgiveness for yourself and everyone else.
