We met John Henry through our dear friends, Bob & Aleta Neel. He was the kind of person you felt you had known for a long time upon meeting him. What a great personality he had! Our son, Brad, worked with John Henry at Terracon, and had a great deal of respect for him as a co-worker and friend. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your family during this difficult time.

It is November and I just learned of John's passing. I met John in 1994 and have kept in touch with him over the years. I rented a room from John. John cared so much for his family and those friends that he made feel like family. Whenever I thought of a 'good person' the phrase "like John Henry" always came out. You are and will be missed.

I have known and worked along side John Henry for the past 5 years. Each time he walked through the doors, the whole room would light up. His smile was infectious and it made my day that much better. I could always talk to John Henry about anything, and he always listened. He will be forever loved and missed by many.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

To the family of my dear sweet and wonderful friend, John Henry: I had the pleasure of getting to know Henry while working with his dentist office. We became close very quickly almost 8+ years ago. Whether I was having a good day or not, John Henry ALWAYS made it better. His laughter filled our office and hearts. He was much more than a patient. He was my friend. He will be so missed by our office, but especially by me.The impact he made in my life will never be forgotten. Now or ever!!John Henry I have NO doubt, you were aware how important you were to us. I will cherish those memories forever. Lee, Susan, John Britt and other family members, you will be in my prayers and forever in my heart. God bless you all!!

John was a dear friend, compassionate man, life of the party, and the epitome of unconditional acceptance and love. John always encouraged those around him. His laugh and smile will be greatly missed. He was a hard worker, dedicated friend, and a loving person. The world will be a little less bright without him. John, you are missed, but most of all, you are still loved.

I had the distinct pleasure of meeting and knowing John during our time at ECU. Sometimes when he would travel home for weekends, he was kind enough to have me ride with him. Yes, his smile was infectious and his personality was second to none. Though we lost contact over the years, I have often thought of him. I agree that he will be greatly missed by his family, friends and colleagues. My prayers to the family that God will sustain and comfort you in your time of great loss. Love you, John, thanks for being a good friend.

John Henry was one of the most honest and caring people I have ever known and he will be greatly missed by everyone. God bless Lee,Robert and Mom Barbara.

What a beautiful smile John Henry had. My memory of his smile, his sparkling eyes and his upbeat nature will stay with me always. So many good times I remember of John Henry with my extended family since the early days in Greenville, where I'm from and where my cousin Wendy came to live after college. I loved the close, caring friendship he and Wendy had. Both so fun-loving, cheering each other on through the years, having joyous gatherings and reunions each year at Wrightsville Beach. John Henry and Will and Wendy's and Donna's families and others would have such good times together. These happy days of summer bracketed the rest of the year. Losing John Henry is like losing the happiest, warmest day of summer. I hope the good memories of him will bring some consolation to his family and closest friends over time. John Henry was a beautiful person, both physically and spiritually. That thought of him will live in my heart. Peace to you, John Henry.

Your sparling blue eyes, your beautiful smile, fabulous laught, and wonderful sense of humor will be missed by all of us. No matter when or where I saw you - you always had time to listen and make me laugh - no matter how down I was at the time. You had a true gift my friend. I know you are still using that gift in a better place.

My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family and friends.

For the short time I knew John Henry, it was apparent he had a gentle,caring soul. It was also apparent how much he loved his family that I know. I hope the hurt is soon replaced by his loving memories.


Bob Neel posted on 6/8/11

John Henry came into my life in May of 1984. We worked 'shoulder to shoulder', almost uninterupted, until this past Monday. I have never known a finer employee or a harder worker than him. But more important than that was his positive attitude, his cheerful nature and his willingness to do whatever was asked of him. He will be missed tremdously.

I offer my sincere condolences to his mother, his brothers and the rest of his family. God bless you all.
