  1. Henry and Joy were our best friends. Henry and my love for space made us brethren forever. We could not be devastated by his passing if it had been one of us. Joy will remain our friend forever, and Henry will forever be in our hearts. Pat and Alan Parrish.

  2. My first cousin, Henry Quinn, was an exceptional Christian man. He demonstrated his faith in Jesus Christ by giving of himself to others and by his encouraging words. When I think of all the lives he touched and influenced for good and for Christ—his students, his friends, his church, and his family—, I rejoice because I know he has an eternal reward that will never fade away.

    I will always remember the family reunions Henry and Joy hosted with Henry making the children feel so special with his gifts from the Christmas tree for each one. He had the best wife I could imagine to help him in this. Joy was a gift from God to Henry, and she meant so much to him. I will never forget his kindness to me and his “Hey Soph” greeting that made me feel so loved.

    Our family has lost a treasure. May we all follow Henry’s example to us to love, honor, and serve each other.

  3. Jeff and I both thought so much of Henry! I’m so sorry for your sorrow in the loss of your great love! May you find Peace that Passes All Understanding in the coming days!!! Much love!

  5. I am so sorry to learn of Henry’s passing. My sympathy to Joy, their fur babies, and all of their family in their loss. He was a wonderful, caring person and teacher who inspired many and will be missed by many.

  6. Joy we wanted to let you know how very sorry we are to hear about Henry. He was an absolute pleasure to see his smiling face in the hall at church, always had a joke to tell us. We enjoyed all our years together with you two in Open Door and all our fun parties. Much love, Michael and Candace Willis

  7. I will never forget those first years of my teaching career and the friendships that started then with Henry, Amy and Pam. The abundant laughter that happened whenever we were together, the sharing of school stresses and just the joy of it all. Henry was a truly good and kind man, an amazing, enthusiastic and effective educator, a truly loving and supportive husband, and the legacies he leaves here because of all these great qualities are endless. I am so sad and so sorry for his loss, but I give praise and thanksgiving to God that he lived and that I had the joy of knowing him and calling him my friend.
