    I was so sorry to see of the passing of Henry. He was always someone I remembered fondly from my school days. Always smiling, cheerful and ready to help at a moments notice. He will always be a star to me. He stood out from the crowd all those years ago and will always be thought of fondly.

  2. Harold Brown says:

    I am very sorry to hear of Henry’s passing. As a kid growing up in Foremost, he was a big mentor in my early life as I played little league baseball under his coaching. The Foremost team achieved success far beyond the Foremost community, going to finals in Alberta and western Canada in large part due to the interest he took in us young kids and his mentorship about the importance of being on time, commitment to the team ….
