Henry was born September 5, 1941 in Blumenort, SK to Jacob and Helena Fehr. He was the 3rd oldest in the line of eight children. At age 15, Henry left school and began work with the Dept. of Highways. Over the years he became an expert motor scraper and much sought-after Grader Operator. He ended his 56-year career in road building with the R.M. of Sherwood #159 as road building consultant and foreman.
Henry had a deep affection for and was the most dedicated and devoted football fan, both of the CFL and NFL. He loved his beloved Riders and enjoyed going to many games. He also loved playing the game of golf and spent 15 enjoyable years golfing and camping at the Sherwood Forest Golf and Country Club. He so enjoyed spending time with his family and loved his grandkids with all his heart.
He loved all of his fur babies over the years and especially the last two, “SadieMae” and “Snookie” whom he faithfully walked everyday rain or shine.
Henry will be deeply missed by friends and family alike.
