Henry met Elizabeth at Mennonite Education Institute, Abbotsford, B.C. His father’s gift of a three-ton truck was the start of Lepp Trucking, which he and his brother operated until 1973. They turned to farming; Henry happily operated equipment until retirement. At Bakerview, Henry and Elizabeth served as deacons, Bible study leaders, Sunday school teachers and Fellowship Choir singers. They always opened their home to friends and missionaries. Henry and Elizabeth loved to go for drives to “check up on things” at the farm, to the Dairy Queen with their grandchildren, and to their children’s homes and offices. Though physically weakened, Henry practised Proverbs 3:5. His love for family, unshakeable faith in God and generous servant heart are his legacy.
