William F. HENRY

Age 70 Of Arden Hills, MN Bill, born June 21, 1943, died peacefully on Aug 30, 2013, surrounded by his family. He was loved and will be missed by his wife Mary, children Nick, Nelle and Emily, daughter-in-law Emily, son-in-law Pete, grandchildren Ella, Annie, Erik and Alex, and his many close friends. Bill was a St Paul guy through-and-through. He dedicated the lion's share of his professional endeavors to healthcare administration at The International Diabetes Center of Park Nicollet Health Services and Foresight Strategy Associates before proudly ending his career at the University of Minnesota. He also served on the boards of directors for Gillette Children's Hospital and Mounds Park Academy. His idea of a perfect evening was to be surrounded by good friends, good food, good stories and good laughs; and he shared countless such nights with family and friends. Quick of wit, generous of spirit, traveler of the world and hater of pickles, Bill was one-of-a-kind. Join us for a fond recollection of Bill's life at the Macalester College Weyerhaeuser Chapel on Grand Ave in St Paul on Sunday, Sept 15th from 1 to 3 pm. In lieu of flowers, memorials to Gillette Children's Hospital are preferred.
