Henry loved to learn and excelled in math, a skill he used in bookkeeping for the farm and family members. Henry and Helen farmed 40 years near McMahon, Sask. Henry taught Sunday school for 30 years. After retiring to Swift Current, Sask., he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Henry was a quiet, determined, hardworking man of integrity. He enjoyed curling, watching sports, eating pie and watching his cattle on the prairie hills. A mission trip to Panama was a highlight. A generous family man, Henry’s greatest desire was to see people meet Jesus.
