Barbara: I am so sad to hear about Henry's passing away. Henry and I were in the same group at LANL. I was Henry's supervisor in C and E-Divisions for many years. He was my best Technical leader among the Sections that I was in charge. I had persuaded Henry to obtain a degree. I was happy to see that he continued to get his MBA degree. We would talk about his desire to invest in the stock market. Judging by the company PCM, Henry had health problems toward the end of his life. Be sure to follow up your own health concerns. As the Technical supervisor of the "Radio Shop", he came into contact with many groups in LANL. One of his major concerns was the security of the communications for LANL. He will be missed by those who appreciated his great work and interaction with others.

Henry was a good man to work with and was a great boss for my last days at LANL. We both retired at the same time. I worked with him for 18 years and considered it my privilege to have known him.

Henry was a wonderful man. He hired my son to work with him at LANL and I will be forever grateful for his mentoring of my son. He also offered support to me when my son was deployed to Iraq. Our deepest sympathies go to his family. We will all miss him and his kindness. We need more men like Henry.
