"Hank" as he was affectionately known, was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. He served his country during WWII and continued his civilian career as an agent with the American National Life Insurance Company, working as an agent and manager until his retirement after over 30 years. He enjoyed traveling and made many trips, both with his job and with his family. Henry had a great sense of humor and liked to spin tales using his imagination to keep his listeners involved in the stories. He was an avid SPURS fan and also liked to play golf and pool. He especially enjoyed staying up many a late night to play poker with his family. He was very proud of his cars and never let them get old, as he would trade
up to always have a new shiny car in his driveway. Henry was dedicated to the Lord and lived his life as a good Christian. His presence in our lives will be dearly missed.
