Henry married Hayden Carr and settled in Victor, ID where she started Festive Living. Although they eventually divorced, their two children were the greatest joy in his life. He loved them with all he had. Together they spent time riding motorcycles and bikes, camping, and skiing. Henry enjoyed watching them play hockey and soccer.
