Henry could often be found at his “office” Delaware Park, at his favorite slot machines. He looked forward to the weekends when he would get his Friday treat of Dunkin Donuts coffee and donuts, go out to breakfast on Saturdays or Sundays, or enjoying his favorite breakfast at home, waffles with strawberries and whipped cream, made by Nick. He enjoyed staying busy by working on many painting projects around the home.
Henry will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
