August 10, 1925 - September 10, 2019
Left to cherish his memory is his wife, Elaine, their children, John (Diane), Lynda Hunt (Ross) and Garth (Susan); grandchildren, Robert (Paisley), Kristin (Dave), TJ and Kylee (Matt), great- grandchildren, Elizabeth, Olivia, Mason, and his granddogs. He is survived by his brother, Roy, and brothers-in-law, Brian Duke and Don Glasspole, along with several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his twin sister, Lily.
Longevity was a hallmark of Henry's life: 65 years of marriage; 50 years employment with Manitoba Bridge; 50 years in the family home; and a devout Christian his entire life, serving faithfully on boards and committees of the church, including teaching Sunday School.
Henry was kind and trustworthy, always willing to lend a hand, and was a dedicated husband and father. He instilled good values in his children and lived by what he believed.
He enjoyed woodworking, tinkering around the home, photography, crosswords and time spent at Granite Lake - fishing, and the deep friendships developed there. Henry had a good sense of humour and a hug for everyone, and sure loved his desserts!
We have been blessed to have Henry in our lives for so many years. Cremation has taken place. A family service of interment will be held at a later date. He loved the Lord and is now 'Forever in God's care'.
If friends so desire, donations may be made in Henry's memory to: Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB).

I was saddened to read of Henry's passing. Both Elaine and Henry have been a part of my life as long as I can remember. Elaine and my sister, Janet were lifelong friends . I remember Henry's kind smile and warm hugs during our many times together. As a little girl, he seemed like a giant to me. Our family gatherings always included Auntie Elaine and Uncle Henry ( as the younger generation called them).Many fun times at Granite Lake, birthday celebrations and their visits to my home in Ontario are fondly remembered. My love and sincere sympathy to all of you. Linda - Posted by: Linda (Meyers) Budreau (Family Friend) on: Sep 21, 2019
I am sorry to hear of "Uncle" Henry's passing. He was such a fixture of my childhood and I have fond memories of time shared at the lake. He had a gentle manner and I loved being teased by him. He always took the time to ask how I was and to have a quiet conversation. I realize now, how rare that was: to have an adult take a genuine interest in the life of a child of his friends. I was proud to call him Uncle. - Posted by: Sheryl Hunnie (family friend) on: Sep 20, 2019

John and Diane, we are sorry to hear of your dad's passing, John. No matter what age, it is always hard to lose a parent. Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time in your lives. Debbie and Ken - Posted by: Debbie and Ken (Friends of John and Diane) on: Sep 15, 2019
I have such a beautiful memory of Henry walking down the aisle of our church Sunday after Sunday on Elaine's arm. A radiant smile always greeted me from both of them. When, after a long time, I recently visited him at Middlechurch we had a lovely conversation in spite of his pain. Seeing his deteriorated condition I began to pray that God would call him Home. So I rejoice with you, Elaine and the family today in his victory and the end of his suffering. - Posted by: Elfrieda Balzer (friend) on: Sep 14, 2019
