My great-Uncle Henry came from England in 1927 when he was 13 years old. He crossed the Atlantic on a steam ship with his mother and sister Edith. They made their way to Atlantic City to meet up with his Father and three brothers who had come ahead of time and gotten settled.

Henry graduated from Atlantic City High School in 1933 and joined the Navy. After being discharged he married his beloved Beverly, a union that lasted 62 years. They had two sons, Dennis and Kenneth.

He was a retired postal worker and lived to the age of 98 and five months. He led an amazing life and still drove very well, lived alone and didn't even need a cane. He belonged to several organizations that kept him very busy.

Henry was an amazing man. He was smart and funny until the last day. We all thought he'd make 100 with no problem but sadly it wasn't to be.
