James R. Henning 1945—2018
James R. Henning, 73, of Huntley, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Monday, July 9, 2018. He was born May 15, 1945, in Elgin; the son of the late John L. and Louise A. (Kahl) Henning. On October 30, 1965, in Harmony, he married Sharon L. Fees. Jim dedicated his life to the Lord and his family here on earth.
