Joseph Henry was a man of few words but always had a smile for anyone he met. Joes later years were filled with numerous health issues, surgeries and hospital stays, yet he never wanted us to fuss over him. Joe never planned to stay long at the hospital so he wouldn't pack much, didn't want to be any trouble to anyone. Joes doctors even told us that he never looks sick, never complained and was a happy guy even though he was very sick. Everyone who met Joe liked him. Joseph Henry was a kind, caring, hardworking, loving man who loved all of his family, cars of all kinds, basketball and bird watching. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his siblings, Robert Henry and Carolyn Henry. He is survived by his wife Donna Perkins Henry; sons, Joseph Henry, Jr. and Phillip Henry; daughters: Yolonda Coleman, Jodi Townes, and Courtney Henry. Joseph was also a step-father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, and friend to many.
