He was an avid baseball fan, playing with the Virgil Cubs in the 40s, then watching his sons play at the Optimist Park and later cheering on the Blue Jays.


Henry was a man whose faith was very important to him. He attended Bethany Mennonite Church for most of his life where he taught Sunday school and impacted many people. Heaven gained a faithful servant.
