Henry was a unique person. I enjoyed being with him. As an umpiring partner he was the best. I will always remember him. R.I.P. buddy.

Henry was my first boss, at my first job, when I was 16 years old. He was my manager at Wendys in Findlay, and one of the sweetest men I have ever met ! Later in life when my kids were in college in BG I would see him at Pagliais. We spoke then, and when I was a server at Whistlestop Inn in North Baltimore. My deepest sympathy to his family. He always spoke so lovingly of you.

Linda & family, I'm so sorry to hear about Henry. He was an awesome guy and made work fun at the PO for everyone who worked with him. I was a Walking Scorer for the Jamie Farr Classic LPGA, which Henry volunteered for many years. Henry had a heart of gold. He will greatly be missed.

So sorry to hear of Henry's passing. We enjoyed seeing him at the Lady Rockets games and teasing each other. He was a great fan. We looked forward to "picking" on each other. He will be missed.

I was saddened to see Henry's obituary today. I knew he was sick but had hoped somehow he could beat it. If nothing else, remember how much he was liked at the post office. Henry: RIP.
