Henry was my boss (Mayor ) at the Village of Morrisville for 6 years. He was very understanding, very well educated when it came to engineering. His wife, Nancy and himself were always there for anyone. Henry and Nancy will both be missed greatly, as they were a fixture in the community. See you in heaven. Debbie (DesJardins) Lorraine.
