Henry, Urbain – October 19, 1944 – February 22, 2019

It is with deep sorrow that I announce the sudden passing of my beloved husband who was
loved and cherished by his entire family. He was well liked and respected by everyone who knew him. Many a times he was approached by someone for help with fixing a motorcycle or car. He was always there to lend a hand because he was a jack of all trades. In his younger days he drove hot rods, dune buggies and raced and demolished many a car. He was a motorcycle enthusiast, touring across Canada and the United States to Daytona Bike Week, Sturgis Bike Week, Las Vegas Bike Week, to the Memorial Day Ride, to The Wall in Washington D.C and Windsor Ontario. After thirty years working as an underground miner, he retired from Inco and continued his love for travelling, with his bus, across North America. He loved boxing, fishing, hunting, being in the Sun, NASCAR and classic country music. He walked rain or shine, winter and summer. Strangers came up to him all the time telling him they saw him walking down Lasalle. The girls at the Blood Clinic nicknamed him 'The Walker’. Henry was the patriarch of our family; loving his three children and adoring his five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren who were the apple of his eye. He is dearly missed by his brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews.

  1. Linda, so sad to hear about Henry. Always knew my mother and I had great neighbours in both of you when we were in No. 25 those four years. I remember the big RV behind our units when you were getting ready to go on an adventure. Thank you for sharing about your hubby, He certainly did a lot of good. I’m sure you were part of doing it too. I keep you and your family in my heart and prayers. I know about losing a good husband. And I give you a hug too. – Monique Murray
