Michael Ray Henry went home to the Lord November 26, 2017. Mike was born in Middletown, OH on October 24, 1958, to Cecil and Mildred Gilley Henry. Mike had recently rededicated his life to the Lord and didn't mind telling anyone who would listen. He had a long four year battle with various illnesses but his death was sudden and unexpected. Prior to his illness he was an employee of Mason and Overstreet Machine Shop and Welding. He graduated high school in 1977 from Middletown, OH. He was of the Baptist faith and was attending Eastside Baptist Church, Pearl.

Mike leaves behind the love of his life, Tina Garwood Henry. He doted on her more than many would have believed. He lived a hard life, but his wife knew he loved her. His favorite saying was to "Keep on keeping on". He brought much laughter to his family even when he was being hard on them; this was his way of showing his love. He spent much of his last years trying to raise his grandsons (Cayden and Hunter). Mike leaves behind four children, Michael N. Henry (Magen), Caitlin Henry, Alissa Brown (Jason), and Sarah Langford (Nick); 8 grandchildren, Anthony Porrier (Moriah), Timmy Kemp, Kaylee Brown, Eva Kemp, Cayden Henry, Hunter Christoforo, Rylee Grace, and Jason Earl Brown, Jr.; 2 great-grandsons, Tyler and Tanner Porrier; sisters, Pam Coney (Rob), Lynda Coulton (Steve), and Jeanie Macy; father, Cecil Henry; father-in-Law, Ronald Garwood; and several nephews and a niece. He was preceded in death by his mother, Mildred Henry; grandson, Joshua Drake Brown; and mother-in-law, Kathleen Garwood.

A Life Celebration Gathering will be held 5:00-7:00pm, Saturday, December 2, 2017, at Baldwin-Lee Funeral Home in Pearl. Memorial services will follow at 7:00pm, in the funeral home chapel.
