Henry was an honest, kind-hearted, music-loving, and thoughtful person. He enjoyed art, making music, listening to techno, and most of all, spending time with his family and friends. Henry was a fantastic father, son, brother, cousin, nephew, grandson, domestic partner, and friend. His kids were the greatest joy in his life, and truly the best father they could ask for. Henry was someone anyone can count on and he was someone that would always be there for you when you needed him. His team at Telus international was like his children/ second family, he always made sure to take care of his team's needs.
Henry impacted so many people, he was loved by everyone in his life, and he would like us to remember him with smiles and positivity.
