“After the service I went to work at Worthen Bank where I was head teller for 5 years. Then I was in the car business for 30 years. When my mother had a triple heart bypass in 2005, I retired. As she continued to get better, I got bored staying at home, so I went to work in the Tech Center at First Security Bank. I am still here ten years later.”

Henry has been married “a short time – only 47 years” to his wife Rose. They have two children, Rita in Jonesboro and Greg in Warren. They also have five grandchildren and one great-grandchild. He said, “I have no hobbies, but I love to fish.”
