Henry was born in Abbey, Saskatchewan on May 11, 1935. And in 1947 moved with his family to the farm in Manitoba, where he soon gained a passion for motorized equipment as he began learning to drive trucks.
In 1951, Dad met the love of his life Teena at the Newton Avenue CRC, whom he later married on May 17, 1958 in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Throughout his time there he held a variety of jobs such as driving school buses, delivering milk, and working in the bush camps during the winter months. His father in-law even taught him the trade of being a bricklayer and carpenter for a short while, before he made his way back to Manitoba and driving truck which he retired from in 2000. Upon entering retirement life, Dad kept his days busy by becoming an active volunteer in the community of Oakbank, being a member of the Beautification Committee, working as a volunteer coordinator at Kin Place, and joining the Citizens on Patrol. After experiencing some mobility issues and wearing out a set of tires, Dad parked his bike and purchased a scooter so that the touring of the town could continue for years to come. He also enjoyed attending any activity his grandchildren and great-grandchildren were involved in. His strong faith and his love for his family was displayed daily to everyone. He was a longtime faithful member of the Transcona CRC.
Our heartfelt thanks go to the staff at HSC, GH4 for all their compassion and support in Dad's last few days.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
I met Henry 16 years ago. He immediately came over and introduced himself when I moved across the street from Teena and him. Henry is what a true gentleman should aspire too, no grey area, devoted family man, and a heart of gold. We spent many hours in the shop sharing wonderful conversations, with a brandy.. or two, lol. I will truly miss my dear friend. Teena and family, please accept my heart felt condolences during this difficult time. Cam. - Posted by: Cam (Friend/neighbor ) on: Aug 22, 2020

Our sincere condolences to the Ryzebol family on their loss. Henry was always telling a story, sharing a laugh, or offering a piece of wisdom when we were around. His love for his family shone through. Hold your memories and each other close. Take care. Kristi & Mike - Posted by: Kristi & Mike (Friend) on: Aug 19, 2020
