Deaths-Henry-WoelkHenry immigrated to Canada with his mother and siblings in 1948. He met Marjorie in Calgary. Henry worked for Greyhound and Calgary Transit, retiring from Victoria Regional Transit in 2002. He watched games through the fence at Mewata Stadium, hockey at The Corral and baseball at Foothills Stadium. His knowledge of sports trivia was surprising. He was never happier than when he was throwing a ball with his sons. Thankful to have escaped to Canada after the war, Henry appreciated blessings others found insignificant. He had a humble, gentle nature, simple faith and quiet strength.
