Charles M. (Mike) Henry died unexpectedly on April 2 nd , 2023. He was 78 years of age, and his family is deeply saddened and shocked by his sudden death.
Mike was born on August 5th , 1944, to Ersel and Pearl Henry.
He grew up as the youngest of five. While bravely serving in the Navy for four years, Mike married his wonderful bride Diane, with whom he built a life filled with love and loyalty that lasted 57 years. They went on to have 2 children, Dwain, and Missy, with whom he worked hard to provide a childhood full of support and love that lasted until his last breath. After working hard all his life to lay a foundation for his family that would last generations, Mike retired from McElroy Coal Mine. He enjoyed spending his time fishing, woodworking, mowing grass, and most importantly spending time with his family and friends. Mike enjoyed sitting on his porch simply enjoying the beauty around him, drinking a cup of coffee, and enjoying a friendly conversation or comfortable silence. He appreciated having a good laugh with his friends and joking around with his loved ones, be it wiggling his ears, slipping out his false teeth, or making a quick funny comment. Mike was the kind of man who loved in the silent ways, he gave all he could for his family and those he loved. He will be missed by all who know him, by his community of Rosby’s Rock, by his friends and family and most profoundly by his beloved wife. “The true meaning of life is to plant trees; under whose shade you do not expect to sit.” -Nelson Henderson.
