Henry you will be deeply missed! I’m so grateful you and Nancy found each other when you did. I wish you would have met sooner so you could have loved each other longer. The smiles you put on each other’s face spread to everyone you met. I’ll have to make my own bread and cookies now, so please guide my hands. I am thankful, grateful and blessed to have known you. I hear you Henry, we’ve got her. Hug my Ken for me💕

Henry was always someone I knew I could talk to, and always took the time to encourage me to improve. I rediscovered my love of Blues Music and my newfound hobby of models from him, and for always being there for me and my girls, I'm forever thankful. You will be missed.

I thank God the short time I had to talk to Henry. He was always witty and a great conversationalist when it we talk about kits and techniques for building them. His voice will be missed. Rest In Peace Henry, we will not forget you.

Henry was my husband for 40 years. Letting him go was the hardest thing I had ever done. He was a wonderful man, and my first love, and my last love. He had 9 grandchildren here in Ohio. Sierra, Alex(who preceded him death)Eryka, Brianna, Camryn, Jackson, Donavon, Dakota, and Dalton. They loved their poppa very much. Henry was an amazing guitar player, and a poet. His poem about the lonely guitar player has always touched my heart. I will always love him, and I'm happy that Nancy was able to have loving time with him. Rest in peace, my sweet man.
Debbie Moses left a message on November 23, 2021:
I miss you so much daddoo. I really don't know what else I can say. I wish I got to say goodbye and tell you how much I love you and you meant to me. I'll hold close the memories we made. Being your helper when you changed the water in yours and mom's water bed until I got too tall. Helping you make rosettes and cream puffs, and you getting annoyed when I snuck the cream puff filling while the puffs cooled. Watching my cartoons while you slept a little after work while Tabitha, Viki and Chris were at school. I can't believe my father is gone. I love you so much and will keep you in my heart always.

Henry was a member our modeling club IPMS Duneland, when we met for the first time I quickly learned that Henry was quite knowledgeable about models and real aircraft. I also found out that he was a really nice person and he treated everyone with respect. I also found out he had a very good sense of humor. Henry will be missed by everyone in the club. My condolences to Nancy and Henry's family. We all lost a really nice guy.

I am Nancy's nephew. I only got to meet Henry a few times. I loved him like he deserved to be as my Uncle. While staying at their house a couple weekends you really learned how much this man loved his Nancy. I will miss him. Rest easy uncle Henry

Henry (I called him "Hank") and I were in many classes together throughout high school. We both loved the Beatles and guitars. We kept in touch through the years and got together when events allowed. I'll miss playing guitar with him and the funny stuff he would share on my Facebook page. He was so smart with a memory that just wouldn't quit!

I will deeply miss Henry. Henry and I were the same age. Henry once made a key case that he craved from leather. He knew I loved horses and that is what he placed on the case along with my initials. He was so special and he learned to play the guitar by ear. He will always be in my heart and memories. Love you coz.

I'm so very sorry to learn of my cousin's passing. He truly did have a big heart and was a genuine and kind soul. Nancy, I'm glad you had a decade of happiness together and I'm sorry it couldn't have been longer.

Henry and I became friends on Facebook. Plastic modelling WWII aircraft was our shared interest at first. But as we grew to know each other music also became a common subject. But what was perfect was when we discussed what music we played while modelling those WWII aircraft. I was hoping to meet him as the pandemic waned since we are not far apart but it will have to wait until we meet in the best place....sharing a modelling table I am sure.
