Henry was a graduate of Yuba City High School and Yuba College, and served as a Sergeant in the Army during World War II. After the war, Henry returned to Yuba City where his love for automobiles led to a career which included serving as service manager at John C.

Henry enjoyed motor homing and was active in the Sutter Buttes camper club for the last 43 years. He was very active in the First Lutheran Church and served as head usher for decades. His favorite sport was auto racing, and he was active in the local branch of Sons in Retirement (SIRS). Henry was married to his wife, the former Norma Olson, for 47 years.

Henry is survived by his daughter Peggy Bellisario (Gene) of Yuba City, and his son Richard Poffenberger (Jean) of Foley, Alabama, his son Alan Poffenberger of Melbourne, FL, and his grandchildren; Brian Bellisario, Scott Bellisario, Ben Poffenberger, Jodi Poffenberger, Nicholas Poffenberger; and three great-children.
