Obituary of Michael William Henry Sr.

Born in Charleston, West Virginia.


Mike was a Mesa resident for the last 65 years. He attended 

Mesa High School. In 1969 he enlisted in the U.S.M.C. In 1970 

he served 10 months overseas as a USMC (LCPL) in the 

Vietnam war.


In 1973 he married Eudora Elaine Morgan. They had three 

sons - Michael, Cliff, and Chance. This eventually grew to 

three daughters-in-law, twelve grandchildren, two grand sons-in-law, two grand daughters-in-law, and three great 

grandchildren. Next to Jesus, Elaine proved to be the best 

thing to ever happen to him. 


He worked at General Motors Desert Proving Grounds for 24 

years. He competed in local, state, and national pistol 

shooting competitions. He started and operated “Henry’s 

Restorations”, an auto restoration shop in Mesa.


His greatest treasure was accepting Jesus Christ as his 

personal Savior as a teenager. And secondly, spending time 

with his beloved family. He invested time with his boys 

teaching them how to work with their hands, handle a 

firearm, maintenance their vehicle and getting a good lunch 

somewhere together. 


One statement he frequently said in his last years was “I’m a 

blessed man”. He went out with joy. Considering the health 

conditions he was in, we as family are thankful that God gave 

him such grace in these last years
