Memories Timeline


  1. So sorry to hear of Henry’s passing. We had coffee just about every other morning.I know Jesse was waiting on him Go rest high on that mountain

  2. Sheila and Teresa: So sorry to see that your Dad has passed. Your family has been a solid and important part of Fairview life for many years, and surely the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. I smile and think about you both each time I pass his house and round the curve on hwy 74 headed home to Cane Creek road. May he rest in peace and may you have fond memories of him for the rest of your days. All my best, Matthew Burril

  3. I knew Henry from DaVita when my husband (he passed away April 30, 2018) was on dialysis there. I loved hearing all about his gardening and canning. He always had an interesting story to tell. He was always so pleasant and rarely complained.
    My heartfelt sympathy and prayers to all of Henry’s family.
