Henry was a beloved husband, devoted father and loving grandfather who served his country in the United States Coast Guard. He was an accomplished design engineer contributing too many notable ventures including his favorite “Pac-Man”. He loved fishing with his family but more importantly loved consuming the “catch”. Henry was an avid Chicago and Notre Dame sport’s fan but most of all revered the game of baseball culminating by the Cubs winning the World Series in 2016.
