Carl Henn was a lifelong friend of my Father and Mother, Cortland and Donna Mikels Shea who worked with Mr. Henn for many years at The Indianapolis Times. I remember Mr. hen and his family growing up and he was a kind and gentle soul who my parents loved and admired. God bless Mrs. Henn and all of the Henn children and grandchildren. Mr. Henn was one of a kind.

Rest In Peace, Carl.

Mr. Henn was a true scholar and gentleman. Though a man of great accomplishment, he remained modest. His loving family could not have been more supportive or respectful. It was a privilege to get to know him and learn about local history. He shared fascinating stories of his tenure with the 'Indianapolis Times' with me.
May God rest is soul and comfort his family with a flood of happy memories.

Gretchen, I'm so sorry to hear of your dad's passing - he lived a full, rich life and left a sterling legacy. I hope you can take solace in his life.
