He served the United States Army honorably from 1962 to 1965. He moved to Hobbs, NM in 1976. He married, Judy Hancock, on April 29, 1977 and they shared 42 years together. Henry was a "jack of all trades" and a devout follower of Christ. He had his own mobile home repair service. Henry retired with Key Energy after 26 years of dedication and service.
