He could fix or build anything, and was very proud to have learned his craftsmanship from his father, who was a master carpenter and woodworker. Henry was a loving husband of nearly 65 years to his wife, Jean, and was her devoted caregiver for six years after she suffered from a stroke until she passed in July of 2015. He is survived by his daughter, Patricia Abo and her husband, Richard, of Glastonbury, his three grandchildren, Megan, Kristy and Eric, and many nieces and nephews.
