Birth: Nov. 4, 1922
McMullen County
Texas, USA
Death: Jan. 13, 2011

James Roscoe Henry, formerly of McMullen County, passed away on Thursday, January 13, 2011 at the age of 88. Mr. Henry was born on the Byrne Ranch in McMullen County on November 4, 1922. He was graduated from Fowlerton High School, Fowlerton, in 1941. He was a veteran of World War II, and received his Honorable Discharge from the U.S. Navy in January of 1946. Although he worked across the United States in the oil field and in construction as a foreman for many years following his military service, his heart and soul stayed with the Byrne Ranch where he was born, and he referred to the hill adjacent to the Frio River on the Byrne Ranch where he lived after retirement as "The Place". Strong and silent, he was known as a man of integrity; a man whose word was his bond, who could always be counted on by others. He enjoyed working on the ranch, family gatherings and helping others, and deer hunting. He was a man of few words who always had a special nickname for grandkids, horses, and cattle. Mr. Henry was preceded in death by his father, Walter Linden Henry; his mother, Mary Josephine Byrne Henry; his brother, Thad Henry; and his sister, Madge Henry Kuykendall. He is survived by his loving wife of 60 years, Annie Laurie Gibb Henry; his sister, Mary Alice Lansford; his son, James C. "Collins" Henry and wife, Terry, of Victoria; his son, Jerry R. Henry and wife, Donna Sue, of Karnes City; his grandchildren, James Henry, Micah Henry, Jeremy Henry, and Brooke Henry; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. Pallbearers will be Frank Franklin, Jr., Harvey Franklin, Roger Armentrout, Tommy Scogin, John Scogin, and Pat Scogin. Visitation will be at the Hurley Funeral Home in Pleasanton, Texas on Sunday, January 16 from 2:00 PM to 8:00 PM; funeral services will be held Monday, January 17 at 2:00 PM, with interment immediately following at the Hilltop Cemetery in Tilden, Texas.
