Henry, his mother, and his sister fled with the retreating German army. After a 5-year upheaval, they arrived in Canada in 1948, forever grateful for safety. Henry apprenticed as a bricklayer in Germany and chose a career in carpentry in Canada – his talent and skill were a blessing to many. Henry’s faith in Jesus was the foundation of his life, characterized by ministry in the church, for Union Gospel Mission, with Trans World Radio in Europe, and through countless hours of visitation. He assisted others with home projects and repairs, played harmonica with Harmony Sounds, and extended friendship to all he met. He completed his journey at St. Boniface Hospital palliative care unit, Winnipeg. A servant with a desire to make a difference, Henry left a legacy of gratitude to God.
