Henry was a Civilian Merchant Marine who was forced to retire early in life due to an accident but that never stopped him from talking about his trips around the world. He loved spending time with his family as well as watching his grandkids play sports. He loved doing his jigsaw puzzles, word search books, playing cards and watching all sports. He especially loved pulling for his Ole Miss Rebels when they were playing against his family’s beloved LSU Tigers.
