Henry was a lifelong farmer in the Saunemin area. Henry enjoyed woodworking. He and Elaine made many craft-folk art projects. He was always happy to make, build or repair just about anything. Together with Elaine they were instrumental in restoring the old Pontiac City Hall to become the Old City Hall Shops, devoting many hours to the restoration. From this experience, they opened and operated Hollyhocks and Rusty Buckets in Pontiac. He had collected many various farm tools and different collections over the years. Many were purchased on antiquing excursions with their friends. Throughout the years, Henry enjoyed his 4-legged, furry children. He is survived by #1son, Dewey, and K.T. the cat.
