SOUTH BEND - It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to Graham 'Hank' Henry, 92. Hank passed away peacefully February 5, 2013, with his wife Alice of 53 years by his side, after an extended illness. Hank was born in Old Harbor Bay, Jamaica on April 11, 1920. He served in the British Navy in World War II as a chef, before immigrating to the United States following the war. Hank is survived by his four loving daughters, Helen (Robert) Ursery, Kathleen (Ron) VanderMolen, Lynne (Michael) Hamilton, and Kimberly (Tom) Brady, and a son Graham Henry Jr., along with 18 grandchildren including Michael, William, Hilary, Kelly, Graham III, Graham IV, Christina, Isaiah, Orion, Cole, Colin, Connor, Maxwell, Catherine, Jackson, Jordan, Aaron, Drew and 19 great-grandchildren. Along with Alice, he started his own janitorial service in 1970, ABC Janitor service, Inc. Hank worked well into his eighties before retiring after having heart surgery. He was an avid gardener, and a wonderful cook who loved preparing meals for Sunday dinners and special occasions. It didn't matter what he prepared, it was all great. Hank is best known for his lemon meringue pie and homemade salsa made with fresh tomatoes and peppers from his garden. It's the little things, the small, everyday occurrences that we'll remember -- the laughs, the stories and the smiles. What a special father, husband and person he was. Hank, Dad, Grandpa, you will be missed. Rest in peace. "To live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die."-Thomas Campbell A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10 AM Monday at St. Joseph Catholic Church, South Bend. Friends may call from 2-6 PM on Sunday at the McGann Hay, University Chapel, 2313 E. Edison Rd., where the Rosary will be prayed at 2.
