Henry moved to Villa Park with his family at the age of 7 and was a lifelong resident, attending St. Alexander’s grade school and York High School. He had a successful career at Harris Bank, where he met and married Norine, the love of his life. When he later retired from the bank, his love of music and talent became his livelihood. He taught piano lessons to many students of all ages. He was also the choir director at St. Alexander’s parish for 20-plus years. Both of these activities were a great source of pride and happiness for him. Finally, Henry was a “true blue” Cubs fan and thrilled to watch their World Series win with the family last year!
