  3. Keith and Donna Dunnett says:

    I’ve known Henry for many years and have seen his determination to keep going through numerous health problems that would have brought down many others. He was a kind and gentle soul who loved the outdoor life of hunting and fishing. His children were always nearby finding time to step in and help, no matter what the need. God Bless him and give him peace. May God help those left behind to learn to live without Henry, his wit and humor.
