Obituary Condolences

Devoted family man
Fredrick Henry Sr., 80, passed away Saturday, May 24, 2008, in Alamogordo.
God gave life to Fredrick "Jack" Henry Sr. May 8, 1928, in Carthage, Texas, to the parentage of Alfred Henry and Bernice Densmore.
Fredrick had the values of hard work, faith in God and love for his family instilled as a youth. He was baptized and accepted our Lord and Savoir Jesus Christ at the age of 7. His way and path in life later lead him to meet his soul mate and wife of 60 years, Dorothy Johnson. They were married Sept. 26, 1947, in Panola County, Texas. Through this union two children were produced: Dorothy Ann Henry-Kelly and the late Fredrick Henry Jr.
In 1956 Fredrick, his wife and two children moved to Alamogordo. He and his family attended Corinth Missionary Baptist Church, and he later became a deacon of the same church. He worked as a printer on Holloman Air Force Base for 20 years and for another 20 after that at the New Mexico School for the Blind and Visually Impaired. He finally retired in 1990.
His greatest joy in life was his five grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren, Stephanie Kelly-Johnson and husband Timothy, of Albuquerque; Robyn McCree and husband the Rev. George McCree, of Phoenix, Ariz.; Roxanne Price and husband Jeffrey, of Dallas; Bobby Kelly Jr., of Albuquerque; and Stacey White, of Las Vegas, Nev.; and great-grandchildren Samuel, Dominique, Bobby III, Parrish, Ashton, Kamryn and Devonte.
Funeral services will be conducted at noon Saturday, May 31, 2008, at Corinth Baptist Church with the Rev. James Forney officiating.
Interment will follow at Monte Vista Cemetery.
Pallbearers include Bobby I. Kelly Jr., Timothy Johnson, Jeffrey Price, Bobby I. Kelly Sr., Shama Jackson and Jerome Holly.
Honorary pallbearers include Charles E. Johnson, the Rev. George McCree and Samuel Haywood.
Family will greet friends from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, May 30, 2008, at the Alamogordo Funeral Home Chapel.
