Not sure what to say?

Was thinking of you today Grandpa. I love you and miss you greatly. We will all do our best here to carry on your great enthusiasm and WILL for LIFE until we see each other again one day. Thank you for carving the path for us all to follow. I will try my best to express gratitude for life and my family every chance I get just like you did.

Dear Rocky:
Sorry to hear about your father passing. He embodied CC and everything it stands for. Please convey our condolences to your family.

Blessings and peace,
Gary E. Gulick, (CC '71)

Thank you Mr. McHenry for teaching me to drive. I passed on much of what I learned to my own children. I remember him as a fair, respectful and caring man/teacher. Have thought of him often over the years. I was Judith Ogozaly then - graduate Cody High 1968. May his family find comfort in all the prayers, well wishes and rememberances.

I will miss him as a neighbor I used to visit him and his wife and watched him walk his dog Bear down our block where we lived

Sharon, Scott and family---We were so sorry to hear of your dad passing away. You are in our thoughts and prayers. May the memories of your dad help you in this time of sorrow.
Elaine and Joe, Charlie, Jackie and Robbie Ciaramitaro

He was my drivers ed teacher at Cody High also. R.I.P Mr. McHenry!

One more thing...
I can clearly hear him asking the question: What does "AMBER" mean? And silly me answered; "YELLOW"? That was a classic my family always laughs at.

Mr. McHenry taught my sister and myself Drivers Training at Cody High School. He was passionate about keeping us safe and the importance of being a safe driver. He was larger than life and made an incredible impression on us both. We still talk about him after 30 years. (And he would be proud to know that at the age of 49, I've never had a ticket or any points on my driving record.) He really cared and had the biggest heart of any man I ever knew! God bless his family!

Chuck has taken that final step into eternity. I pray that the "Peace of God" would permeate through your family and guide you all through the grieving process. He had a great long life. He was very funny with great sense of humor; and a great story teller. We will miss him!
