Henry was a lifelong member of Immanuel Lutheran Church where he sang in the choir and served on many committees.  He had many lifelong friends that he shared his time with playing cards, hunting and fishing, playing softball, camping, bowling or golfing. He retired from Michigan Bell Telephone Co. and was a past president of the C.W.A. Union.  He and Pat traveled around the country visiting friends, California relatives and also went to Europe.  They did their best to attend as many of their grandkids events as possible.  Henry passed along his love of sports and the outdoors to his children and grandchildren.  They shared many camping, hunting, fishing and golf adventures with him.  He never met a person he couldn’t talk to.  He always liked to have a friendly wager on whatever sporting event was going on.  He loved to tell a joke and was quick to laugh.  He loved ice cream.  He will be missed by all.

In accordance with Henry’s wishes his body will be donated to the University of Michigan Medical School.  Visiting hours will be Sunday, September 17, 2017 at Penzien-Steele Funeral Home from 12 noon until 3 p.m. at which time a memorial service will be held.  The Rev. Leroy Westphal will officiate.  Memorials may be made to Immanuel Lutheran Church and Do-All.
