Peter Andrew Henry hoisted his final sails on Aug. 22, 2018, and returned home to his Heavenly Father to join his Lord and Savoir and to be reunited with those of his family gone on before him.
Born July 4, 1934, the world welcomed him with a display of fireworks for which he always had a love. Beloved husband, father, grandfather, son and big brother, he is well loved and will be greatly missed.
A 22-year veteran, he fought for our freedoms serving in both the Navy and the Army. He was stunning in his uniform! Awarded the Bronze Star Medal for outstanding meritorious service, he retired as a chief warrant officer.
He won the heart of Nancy Hathaway and they enjoyed more than 58 years of marriage with never a dull moment. They raised four children together residing mostly in North Idaho.
He is survived by his wife, Nancy Henry; his children, Denver Henry, Cassandra (Doug) Bickford, Colleen (Mark) Johnson, and John (Margaret) Henry; his grandchildren, Morgan Henry, Justin Henry, Brandon Henry, Jaclyn Wakefield, Greggory Johnson, Tyrel Johnson, Cory Johnson, Neal Johnson, Samantha Coates, Crystal Douthwaite, and Jason Walker; and numerous great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his brothers, Roger Henry, Karl Henry, David Henry, George Henry, Bucky Henry, Charlie Henry, and Paul Henry; and his sister, Jeanne Pomes. He is preceded in death by his parents, Eugene and Helen Henry.
