My Story

I was born in Columbus, Ohio in 1936.  I was the oldest of three children born to Pete and Margaret Henry.  My sisters were Joyce and Judy.

I joined the United States Air Force in 1954 and retired in 1974.  Before I retired from the Air Force, I went into the real estate field, which I stayed in for over 30 years.

I married to Cerina in 1957.  We had three children, Susan, Pam and Pat Jr.  We divorced in 1968.  In 1968 I married Sandy.  We had no children and were divorced in 1978. In 1979 I finally got it right when I married Bette.  We also had no children and were married for almost 21 years when I died.

In 1987 I surprised Bette with a weekend theater trip to England. While there, I was able to look up some old friends. In 1997 Bette and I went back to England for several weeks. We were also able to spend time in Ireland, where we both felt like we had returned home. Our dream was to return to Ireland and spent lots of time there.

Bette and I spent our married life traveling.  We were married at our home in Bailey, Colorado and had a winter home just north of Ensenada on the Baja Peninsula in Mexico.  We sold our home in Bailey and moved to Buena Vista, Colorado.  After we sold the Mexico place, we also sold our Colorado home and moved to southern Arizona.  Bette really hated it, so we bought a small summer place in the Colorado mountains that we loved so much.  I was trying to buy back our place in Buena Vista when I got sick.

In October of 1999, I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  Although my initial prognosis was excellent, I died six months later.

I didn't want to go.  I love my wife, my children and grandchildren, my sisters, and so many friends that have become family to me.  But, I can still watch over every one of you. 

I love you all!
