Obituary for George Mitchell Henry

George was born in Gladstone Manitoba to Mary & John Henry.

He passed away in Lions Gate Hospital after a lengthy courageous battle with cancer. He is survived by his loving wife Shirley, sister June (Arnie), son Michael (Susan), daughter Michele, grandchildren George (Rachel), Grant, Alex, step great-granddaughter Bella and many nieces, nephews and friends.

His love of the ocean originated in Prince Rupert where he grew up and spent summers fishing off the coast. After High School graduation he moved to New Westminster to attend BCIT and UBC.

“Mr. Henry” taught in 100 Mile House for 4 years then at Pemberton Secondary School for 30 years as a teacher and Vice-Principal . He is remembered for his musical talents in the many musical productions that he wrote and produced, and the band “The Generation Gap” that he performed with which included some of his students and a teacher. He taught a wide variety of courses including all the Industrial Education courses, English, Cooking and Band. He was a favourite teacher for many as he had the ability to connect with his students in a positive way.

George was a Charter Pemberton Lions Club member, President of PACA (Pemberton Agricultural & Community Association) President of the Pemberton Museum. He was a great historian and spent countless hours on construction, supervision and fundraising events at the Pemberton Museum. George spent much of his life in Pemberton volunteering in the community whether it was Loggers Sports , doing repairs at the Visitor Centre or helping pour concrete for the new Village water tank. He also built and operated Pemberton’s first Drive Inn Restaurant the “M & M Drive Inn.”

George built a second home on Lillooet Lake and spent much of his time there with his family and friends. It was one of his favourite places to be. Nothing gave him more pleasure than to have his family and friends surrounding him at the dining room table at the lake. He will be sorely missed by his friends there.

Family was very important to George, he was a caring, supportive father. He was a brilliant man and always a teacher to the end.

George will be missed for his sincerity and sense of humor that he maintained even during his final days.

The family wishes to give a special thank you to the Pemberton Health Centre Staff and Doctors- N. Fisher, J. Fuller, A. Finnigan, N.Vagelatos,W. Ho and all the nurses and Dr. Avenessian at the Oncology Dept at Lions Gate Hospital.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Donations may be made to the Pemberton Health Care Foundation.
