Henry was born in Vienna, Austria in 1921 and moved to Canada in 1951, ready to tackle new language and culture challenges and succeed in a new world. Succeed he did and he enjoyed a long career as an engineer with the federal government and loved to recall the many bridges and roads he helped build. Well travelled, he loved to read and complete crossword puzzles. Henry’s friendliness touched many people including neighbours and staff at local banks, stores and restaurants. Many thanks to his caregivers and hospital staff who cared for him in recent years and a special thanks to his close friend Herb who helped ease his last years and final moments.
