Pat and family, I just wanted to say that I am late in responding but wanted to send my condolences to all.

To Pat & Family, My sincere condolences on your loss. Growing up on our farm in Smoky Lake, I have fond memories of cousin Henry and his family visiting us many times. Vichnaya pamyat (Memory eternal).

Pat and Families, Sorry to hear of Henry's passing. He was always ready for a talk when meeting up. Condolences to all.

Sorry for the loss of your son, husband, father and grandfather. My fondest memories of cousin Henry is when I was a young girl and our family took a road trip to Trail, BC where we spent many days exploring, swimming in the cool mountain fed lakes on hot summer days and last but not least enjoying the sweet, crisp juicy cherries from Henry's back yard tree! Later in the summer of 1980, when I was a teenager, my sister also a teen and our cousin embarked on an adventurous road trip from AB to BC. One of our stops was Trail, BC this is where our cousin Henry opened his heart and home to three young women. I will never forget his generosity and the time he spent to take us on a tour of the radio station, as well as other points of interest, it was a summer to remember! God Bless, Cheryl and Mike Kuziw

Pat, We're so very sorry for your loss. We've all lost one amazing always-smiling cheerful family member. I'm so glad he made it out to the Rogoza Family Reunion just 3 years ago. I have many childhood memories of hanging around you two amazing people but the most special one is how welcomed my husband and our 4 children felt when our motorhome broke down in Trail just before a September long weekend! You two were most hospitable, FUN and generous. We sure sang a lot that weekend! I also have 4 Ducks Unlimited prints because Henry got me started ! LOL Love you all Sandra and Andre STOR
