LEDESMA, Henry III of Saginaw, MI Our beloved angel Henry Ledesma III went to be with our Heavenly Father on Monday, April 30, 2012 at Covenant HealthCare, after a brief illness, at the age of 27. Henry the son of Henry Jr. and Frances (Hernandez) Ledesma was born a twin on August 29, 1984. Henry was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at birth, and lived a life with many battles to fight, but fought through each circumstance with a great heart. Henry attended the Millet Learning Center where he graduated at the age of 25. Thank you to everyone at Millet for caring for Henry. Henry loved going to school and would be upset if he missed a day. He always had the biggest smile on his face that could light up any room. Spending time with his family was one of his favorite things to do. Henry was loved very much by the people who surrounded him.
Surviving are his mother, Frances Hernandez Ledesma; father, Henry Ledesma Jr.; and four sisters: Rachel, Tina, Angela Ledesma and Erica (Mark) Brethauer; many aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his twin, Rosario; and grandparents: Alex and Stella Hernandez and Henry and Mary Ledesma.
Henry’s family would like to extend a special thank you to Liz and Harry Carruth and the caregivers for the many years of loving tender care given to Henry. He really loved each and every one of you. Thank you for all of your love and support.
