Jerry and I met Henry and Mitchell through Lynn many years ago. Lynn was a neighbor and Henry and Mitchell would visit. Henry would Eli over to the house on Saturday morning and have coffee and visit with us. A wonderful family man that loved his family, especially Mitchell and his girls. God has welcomed a wonderful angel and I’m sure Henry is telling everyone in heaven all about Mitchell, his girls and grandchildren. He will be missed by so any people but there will be another day that Henry will welcome all of his family and friends.

I remember Henry very well from being a young person at Monaghan Baptist Church. Henry took time to work with all of us, giving unselfishly of his time and energy. Many times, Christians wonder if their work with missions and young people actually made a difference in the lives of those around them. With Henry, I can say a definite "yes!". Many of the young men at Monaghan went into ministry, teaching, and other areas of service. I've taught in public school for 40 years, and worked with young people in church for over 35 years. I've always tried to show love, enthusiasm, and energy. Henry set a wonderful example for me in each of these. My prayers go out to all of you as you grieve.

I will always remember Henry's laugh. He was a dear friend to me and I consider it a blessing to have known him as a childhood friend. He was always there to cheer you up and was always laughing. I send my condolences to the family.

Henry Cantrell was a remarkable man who loved the Lord, family, and friends.  He was always smiling and congenial.  Remember Henry running 5 miles or more daily on the street.  He was always the same smiling and happy guy.  He will be missed at Rock Springs Baptist Church in the Seekers Bible Fellowship Class.  Our love and compassion to his family whom he loved dearly.

Our hearts are saddened by the news of Henry's death.  Our thoughts and prayers will be with the family during this difficult time.  I worked with Henry for many years at Duke and since our retirement, have enjoyed our monthly breakfast meetings at Tommy's Ham House.  Also, I had the opportunity to work with Henry for the Duke Retirement Club since retiring.   We have many pleasant memories.  He was a very talented and caring person, always willing to lend a helping hand and will be missed greatly.

Mitchell, I still have the picture of me after having been in your wedding to my "Unka Henwy." He was moms baby brother and she always had stories to tell about him and I always enjoyed hearing them. 
I am so sorry for your loss. 2 Corinthians 1:34 tells of the comfort God offers...and Revelation 21:4 assures us of a time when there will be no more mourning. I hold that hope in my heart just as I do my memories of Henry. 
May God hold you all in the palm of his mighty hand and offer you strength and courage.
Joan and Jerry Brezeale left a message on May 23, 2020:
