We are so sorry to hear in the loss of your Dad. I really enjoyed fishing with Henry. He never wanted to stop fishing. He always treated us so kind. He will be missed!

I worked with Henry at the 919th for many years. He was an exceptional airplane maintainer who knew more about the T-56 engine than the people who built them. I always enjoyed talking fishing with Henry but try as I might he would never tell me where his really good fishing holes were located.
Rest in peace,
Larry Wager

May God Bless the entire Bailey Family during this time of bereavement. Henry was one of the most dedicated co-workers. He keep us safely flying all those years. Beginning when we landed the first “A” model RC-130A 522 at Duke. RIP my friend.

So very sad to hear the news about another fellow Ghost Rider, Rest in peace Henry, you were one of many great friends and co-workers at Duke Field. Always a smile and fantastic Engine Mechanic and Shop Chief.

I will never forget Henry. Working one day late on a flyer I asked him for relay box to slave in and eliminate it as a possible problem. He told me he did not have one, for me to find the problem. So I worked hard but I finally determined it was the relay box. He sent one of his mechanics back to the shop to get one.
WHEN I ASKED HIM WHY HAD HE DONE THIS TO ME, HE SAID HE WANTED TO FIND OUT IF I HAD WHAT IT TOOK OR NOT! Ever time after that he was the first to jump to support me. I enjoyed working with him and have some real good fond memories of our times together. I will surely miss him.

"I am a part of humanity, and every man’s passing diminishes me. Therefore, send not to ask for whom the bells toll, they toll for thee". Henry, I will miss you my friend, and I will pray for your family. The world is a lot less brighter now that you are gone. Rest in Peace, my friend.
