It is with deep sorrow the family of John David Henry announce his sudden passing on February 9, 2020.
John was born January 13, 1943 in Portage, Manitoba. He was always a family man, first as the second child of nine, then as a dedicated and loving father to his three children and a beloved papa to his four grandsons and his only granddaughter.
John spent his younger years working with his wife at their business, Henry Foods. He enjoyed curling and spending weekends at the cabin. He enjoyed his retirement years catching up on all his TV shows in between watching his grandkids' hockey games. He always enjoyed friends stopping in for a cold one.
John leaves behind his beloved wife of 47 years, Audrey, his three children, Amanda (Robby), Misty (Geoff) and James (Melissa), his four grandsons, Braeden, Ethan, Cason and Levi, and his granddaughter Kennedy.
