Predeceased by an infant sister Shirley (1940), his brother Paul Robert (2005) and his wife Germaine (2011) and grandson JR Wood (2003). Dad cherished all family gatherings, some of which included playing euchre. His love of the outdoors included cutting grass, growing his garden, hunting and fishing. Dad was always up for an adventure.
Henry retired from Active Canada in 2000, where he took great pride in delivering International trucks to the East and the West Coast. His love for the road was always expressed in the stories he shared.
