Henry was a very kind and generous person who never met any strangers. He would talk to anyone and could make you laugh even if you were sad or upset. He loved his grandkids and would talk to them as if they were grown. He loved to collect knives, sit outside, and watch the cars go by. He always told stories from his childhood where he grew up in East Texas.
