As a young man Henry lived and worked in a variety of places, making a
lot of friends along the way. In 1967 Henry moved from Aldergrove to the peace country. He bought himself a piece of land in Buick Creek of which he broke, farmed and raised cattle.
During this time he was also employed as an operator in the oil & gas industry. There were few things Henry didn’t experience. Anything that caught his attention and imagination he made it a reality. He had many hobbies of which he thoroughly enjoyed. He owned a plane and built
an airstrip. He enjoyed rebuilding old motorcycles, cars & trucks. Henry worked a trapline and was an avid hunter. One of the things Henry enjoyed most was owning and racing his Standard Bred Pacers. He built his own racetrack and put it to good use. Henry was renowned for his
storytelling abilities. He would grasp your attention and keep you so intrigued you would hang on his every word. In 1984 Henry had an auction and sold his farm and moved to Red Rock in the Prince George area where he spent time working for Finning as a welder. Upon leaving Finning he bought himself a gravel truck and hauled gravel for a couple of years. He spoke of these days with many fond memories. Henry retired to Prince Rupert. He bought himself a boat of which he seldom took out on the water, but spent many hours working on it, relaxing and observing the comings and goings of other boats and life on the water. Henry was very happy with his move to Prince Rupert. He enjoyed the fresh moist air, the flowers and trees in bloom and mostly, spending time walking on the wharfs engaging in conversations with an eclectic group of people. Here he made many new friends and enjoyed coffee and outings each day. All who knew him, loved him and he will be dearly missed.
At his request, there will be no funeral service.
