Although life was not always easy for Timothy Henry, he was willing to work hard throughout much of his life.
During a decade that is often referred to as the “Nifty Fifties,” 1953 was a year to remember in America. This was a year in which the New York Yankees won their fifth straight world series, From Here To Eternity enraptured audiences in the theaters from coast to coast, and the first open-heart surgery was performed. This was a significant year in the family of Harold and Ruth (McDermott) Henry as they welcomed the birth of their son, Timothy Harold, on September 13th. Tim was born in Platteville, Wisconsin, located in the southwestern region of the state as the fourth of seven children born to his parents. When his mother remarried some time later, Tim was joined by two additional siblings.
After graduating from high school, Tim entered the work force. He worked as a laborer in a machine shop. Since Tim was diagnosed to be schizophrenic, it took some patience and understanding to deal with him. He lived with his brother Michael and sister-in-law Margaret for a number of years. Tim eventually moved to a group home in West Allis, Wisconsin, located in the Milwaukee metropolitan area.
Life took a drastic turn just a short time ago when Tim was diagnosed with lung cancer. Not long after, he was placed under hospice care and later drew his last breath.
Timothy Henry was a beloved brother who touched the hearts of those he loved in a unique way. He will be dearly missed.
