Henry was a proud "Northender" with many stories of escapades around Selkirk Ave., Redwood, bowling at Mosienko Lanes, his first "job" as a newspaper carrier, and meeting the love of his life Lydia.
In retirement years he was able to travel to many exotic places to escape our winters as well as trips to Australia, Hawaii, Germany and a number of cruises.
