He was preceded in death by his parents; a son, Scott Henry; a brother, John Henry; and a grandson, Devon Henry.
The son of Houston and Margaret Louise (Craig) Henry, he was born December 20, 1952, in Austin, Texas. He married Bethany (Rowland) Henry on March 17, 1990, in Las Vegas, Nevada. With a mutual love for photography, they took many hiking & caving expeditions searching out waterfalls and spelunking places, far away from city lights where he could also photograph the vast expanse of the Milky Way Galaxy. He enjoyed white-water rafting and holds the distinction of being in the group that successfully maneuvered the Snake River in Idaho during a snow storm. Whether it was heralding gun rights with the NRA, riding his Harley-Davidson, hang-gliding off a mountain slope or scuba diving deep under the surface, Rick loved to stretch the limits in many facets and adventures of his life.
Rick was a graduate of the University of Arkansas with a Master’s Degree in Management. He served 12 years in the United States Navy and later began his career as an IT Manager with Entergy in the nuclear industry.
