Carl suffered a long illness. He was born to Walter K. Henry and Frances Shock Henry at Ladd AFB, Fairbanks, in the Territory of Alaska on April 4, 1954. Carl and his family moved to College Station in December 1957. He attended College Station Schools and graduated from High School in 1973. Carl became an Eagle Scout by age 13. He owned two duplexes that he rented, and operated a small lawn maintenance business. In spite of his physical shortcomings he managed to get along. He was a life member of the Independence Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution. His hobbies were taking and printing photographs and enjoying music.

He is survived by his mother, Frances Henry of College Station; brothers and sisters-in-law, Stephen and Maxine Henry of Springfield, VA., Dale and Mary Henry of Austin, TX.; nieces and nephews, Hannah and Emery Henry of Austin, Laura Henry of Dumfries, VA and Robert Henry of Marblehead, MA; and an aunt and uncle, Clarence and Mary Jane Belknap of Cuyahoga Falls, OH.

Memorial gifts may be made to the A-M United Methodist Church Building Fund, Boy Scouts of America, or the charity of donor’s choice.

  3. Frances brought Carl to many of our Exploring History Lunch Lectures at the College Station Conference Center over the last several years. He always had a smile and a hello for me. I think he really enjoyed the lectures because he always listened intently. He was so well cared for by his mother. We should all be as fortunate. I will keep you all in my prayers, Anne

  4. Frances, Ben and I are so very sorry for your loss. I know you take great
    comfort knowing that Carl is no longer
    in pain and suffering but enjoying our
    Heavenly Father.
    May God Bless and keep you and this

    ones. Blessings and love, gay zinn

  5. Steve,

    Sorry about your loss. I hope you and your family find peace during this most difficult time. I try to remember the folllowing during times like this:

    God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change. Courage to change the things I can and Wisdom to know the difference.


  6. Mrs. Henry,

    Carl helped me turn my life around. He was always positive, kind and thoughtful at a time when many of our peers weren’t. Though he probably didn’t always show it, he loved you deeply and appreciated your support and encouragement throughout his life.

    With my heartfelt condolences,

    Doug Matheny
