He was a past chief of the Burke County Board of Registrars. He was a member of the Georgia Army National Guard for 6 years during the Vietnam War. Henry was a lifelong Alabama Crimson Tide fan, with many family ties to the University. He lived a full and wonderful life that included many friends and acquaintances through his personal life and business career. Henry was a Christian and an honest man. He was an avid and devoted outdoorsman throughout his life but always a true conservationist. In the field of fishing and hunting, he set many personal goals and accomplished them all. He set a world fishing record in 1976 that still holds today. He loved and cared for his numerous hunting dogs. Perhaps Henry’s greatest love was the study of prehistoric Americans. He was an avocational archaeologist and often said it was the “unknown” in archaeology that enhanced his hobby. At age 68, he was honored by the Burke County Sheriff’s Office for his heroism in taking down 2 armed robbers with a shotgun after they had robbed and brutally beat him.
