We are so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. We will hold him in our hearts and memories and you and yours in our prayers. Mother will be in contact with you a little later.

I had the pleasure of meeting Jimmy and his wonderful wife Virginia after research I was conducting regarding the history of the Sheriff's Department, led me to his front door. Jimmy
and Virginia were most gracious and invited me into thier home that time, and on numerous subsequent occassions. As I talked with Jimmy about the old days, I often felt as though I was riding shotgun in his old patrol car as he recounted with perfect clarity, the details of numerous calls for service and investigations he conducted during his time with the Department.
I learned more however about Jimmy than the fact that he was a great cop. He was also a good, God fearing man, who was always humble and thankful for all that he had, especially Virginia and the rest of the family. He seemed to care deeply for his fellow man and the plight of others in the world. He loved being a peace officer as he had been able to help so many people on both sides of the law.
I will miss my visits with Jimmy and Virginia for sure, but I also know we will meet as friends again on the other side someday. To Virginia and Jimmy's family, I want you to know what an honor it was to have met Jimmy. His legacy will live on via his contributions which will one day be included in historcial displays for the Department. Thank you again Lt. Henry for your service to this Country, and the people of Riverside County. God speed. 10-7.
Jim Henry was a good man. I had the privilege of meeting him early in my ill spent youth when he was with the Hemet Sheriffs. I am 72 year old and my life has been in a better place for the lessons I learned from Jim. I never got the opportunity to thank him so thanks Jim for all the heads up and the hard lessons you taught me about dealing with life. Ernie C. Salgado Jr.,
