Barbara & Family,
It was a privilege and a pleasure to work with Henry the past 8 years. He was a mentor and a great friend,I will miss him very much.Henry was a artisan in the workplace and a great craftsman,electronic fabricator.Most of all I will miss his warm personallity and laughter.

Henry was a kind, caring soul who was a pleasure to know and work with at Jefferson Lab. He was always calm at tense times and was a father figure to the young workers in his work group. He presence is missed at the Lab, My condolences to his family, where I am sure he is missed even more. .

Henry was one of those very rare people who easily and quickly connected with so many others...and at so many levels...and in such a warm and personal manner. He helped bring out the best in all who knew and worked with him.

Henry was one of a kind. I enjoyed talking and joking with Henry over the years. He will be missed.

On behalf of the Contraband Historical Society and as a Jefferson Lab employee I would like to extend sincere condolences to the Whitehead Family. Henry was a father figure to me, providing valuable information to my inquiries about Hampton's history.
May God bless and keep you.

May you find peace and comfort in the days ahead. Continue to keep your faith in God.

I just heard of Henry's passing and am truly sad to learn he is no longer with us. Henry always greeted us girls at the Lab with a smile and those one-armed hugs that would drawf us! He always had a kind word to say. The Whitehead family should be very proud to have had him as a husband, father, brother, etc. I was proud to have him as a friend. Please accept my sincere condolences.

To The Family of The Late
Mr. Henry Whitehead, Jr.

I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Henry. Henry was a kind and thoughtful individual. May God continue to bless you during this very difficult time.
