Henry worked at The Courthouse Market Downtown Fort Worth for over 30 years and then worked at Bransom’s Grocery Store in Burleson until he retired. He had many joys in life other than work. He loved music, playing his guitar and was a member of the Cedar Point Music Group. Henry and his horse Sugar, who is 37 years old, spent many years together and were members of the Poor Boy Riding Club. They won numerous belt buckles and ribbons competing in many different events such as barrel racing and pole bending. Mowing the yard and yard work was one of his favorite hobbies, for he didn’t view it as work. He also enjoyed wood working, as he made cedar benches, tables, clocks, and Hope Chests for his great-granddaughters.
