To Henry's family I am sorry for you loss. I was in and out of Henry's life for 63 years. We went to Arlington H.S and graduated together. We both were members of the AHS basketball team and basically that is where it all started..our friendship. I can't put into words everything we did together. The trip to Washington DC to see the vietnam vet memorial or the trips to Cape cod to play softball. I am ashamed to say a lot of our trips ended with a few beers a wonderful time and a story to tell. He loved his dog Toby more than any person could love a dog, loved being a Marine ,and most recently he loved playing softball in the Pok Senior softball league. When you went anywhere with Henry, usually ending with a cold beer or two,you had to be on your toes because a good time was about to be had. Goodbye my friend,you will be missed.

I knew Henry from Senior Softball. He was a solid competitive player on both sides of the field and could always disarm you with his smile. His distinctive humor will be missed most assuredly. Godspeed to Henry and family. Jim Flood
