Zach's sphere of influence is wide and I feel so fortunate to have been within it. He truly was an inspiration to me and had an enormous impact on my own spiritual life. I am certain that he had that same impact on many who are now Christ-followers at least partly because of his determination to spread the Word. I will always cherish the memory of my visits to your home and our talks of things both spiritual and personal. God Bless You!
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Condolences on the loss of Dr. Henry. He was a fine man.
I had heard of Dr. Henry when I was talking to my former band director Ron Rogers of Farragut HS in 1994 (Mr. Rogers is at William Blount HS in Maryville.) when he told me that he grew up with Dr. Henry's son. I got a chance to meet Dr. Henry at the 1999 ASAE (now ASABE)-CSAE joint meeting in Toronto at the Prayer Breakfast for ASAE. He was a fine Christian man and a leader in the field of what is now Biological Engineering. Dr. Henry will be missed.
Dr. Henry wrote the first orchid letter I received as an engineering librarian new to academic librarianship at the UT Hodges Library in 1986. He had visited the library with his ag engineering students, as I recall. It ended with "We appreciate what you have done." I didn't know it at the time, but I would move the following year to the AG-VET MED Library on the UT Institute of Agriculture campus where Dr. Henry worked. Dr. Henry's letter was emblematic of the way UTIA faculty interact with students and support personnel and why the ag campus is a special place to work. Many thanks to Dr. Henry and his extended family.
