Bernie Anthony Henry

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved father, brother, grandfather and great-grandfather Bernie Anthony Henry on October 6, 2014 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital surrounded by his loving family. Born in Glace Bay, he was the son of the late Eddie and Mary (McMillan) Henry. Bernie was an avid reader. He also enjoyed going bowling with friends and he loved dancing. After being faced with an unthinkable diagnosis Bernie handled living without his legs with resilience and humour he commented “They are only legs, I have the love and support of my family and that’s everything” His bravery was just one of the things that made his family so proud. Bernie is survived by his sons Eddie (Lisa), Oshawa, Ont, Peter (Shannon), New Castle, Ont., daughter Agnes Henry, Oshawa, Ont., sisters Carol Ann (Gordie) Martell, Edwina (Duane) Vardy, Sheila (Dougie) Leadbeater, All of New Waterford and Jocie (Alex) Lynk, Ont. He is also survived by his 6 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild, as well as many nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, he is predeceased by his brother Neil Henry. Cremation has taken place. There will be a funeral mass on October 8, 2014 at 10 a.m. in the Parish of Saint Leonard with Fr. Ray Huntley officiating. Burial will be held in Mount Carmel Cemetery followed by a reception at the Army, Navy & Air Force, Smith St. All are welcome. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of McLellan Brothers Funeral Home, 3183 Plummer Ave., New Waterford.
