For my old work buddy, you will be missed. My sincerest condolences to Henry Jr’s only two surviving sons and grandchildren; brothers, Thomas and Christopher. You all have my sympathy. Everyone seems to forget that my buddy, Henry had his two sons. All I ever hear about is condolences to the lady he dated, Grace. People forget that he was not married to her. But, he was married to Terrie Lynn for over forty years. Please show some respect and remember Henry Jr’s immediate, surviving family. They have alot more to grieve about.

Henry. We always had a good time at the Cajun Greek restaurant. As the PR person for The International Oleander Society you helped us get new members and I thank you for your contribution. We will miss your funny stories and your participation. Rest in Peace Henry.

Stephen, Trey, Mary and all the other Homrighaus's, my sincerest condolences. Like many, I count Henry as one of my very best friends. He made so many lives a bit better just by being there and he will be missed. But I hope you all take comfort in the fact that you know exactly where he is now, and that he will be waiting with open arms when you leave this world yourself. Sorry I couldn't make it down there today. I seem to have a closet full of shirts that your Dad took off his back and gave to me over the years, and if I can ever return the favor, please let me know.

 

Sean O'Keefe posted on 4/13/18

My sympathies to the entire Homrighaus family and to Grace. I will miss Henry's humor, his companionship, his knowledge and advice, and his unquestionable integrity but most of all I will miss his friendship. Peace be with you my friend.

Dearest Grace, My heart is so broken for you. Henry found a second real love and your love for him was so unconditional and true. May Jesus hold your two hearts through this very sad time.

Stephen Homrighaus posted on 4/11/18

Dad you will be dearly missed by your family. I will always remember the life lessons you provided, sage advice and sense of humor. Your legacy will live on with your son's and grandchildren. I was so blessed to follow in your footsteps into the security industry I got to see my hero in action. The time we spent together hunting, fishing and the long talks we had are going to be lifelong memories. Thank you for always being there no matter what you had going on in your life at the time.

Go rest in the arms off your loved ones , that have gone ahead of you. Rest in peace Henry.

 

Chris Homrighaus posted on 4/10/18

My brother Henry, really knew how to tell a joke and have a good time! We enjoyed a love for fishing ,hunting and the blues. He always looked out for us , when we were kids. He also came back to the island ,to help with our parents as they grew old , which was a blessing. Good Night Sweet Prince!

Tre' told me you had paid him a brief, visit on Sunday evening over at the house. I am glad you did, he needed to see that you were okay. I think this helped bring some comfort to him, because he is surely taking it hard right now. I pray each night for the repose of your soul, dad. You left us all much too soon :(

Your father will be truly missed. Know that you all are in the Reilly's thoughts and prayers.

Tom Homrighaus posted on 4/9/18

Dear Brother, I remember fondly you helping me break in my first 20 gauge down the island. We hunted dove at the oaks our grandfather planted on the east side. Moreover, I remember well our deer hunts together in west Texas. I especially remember the hungry hunt when you said don't worry about food there is alway plenty at camp-not the case that spartan trip, and the frozen hunt when I had the threadbare, cloth blind @ 14 degrees and you were in your bunker blind and, of course, you remarked how brisk it was-brisk indeed my boys were frozen let alone my toes. I will dearly miss fishing, hunting, and talking with you especially sharing music, books and game recipes. Most of all your stories about our parents when they were young and the island in the 50s and 60s. Yours in Jesus, family, food, music, literature, hunting, fishing, and humor! Via Con Dios Tommy

I was so saddened to hear that Henry was called home. Every time I saw him, he had open arms and a big hug for me. I will always remember the music of his laughter and that twinkle in his eyes. He was one of a kind, that's for sure. Rest well in the arms of Heavenly Father, Henry. Until we meet again.

Linda and I pray for God to bless the Homrighuas family, friends, acquaintances and coworkers with the Peace that passes all understanding, the Comfort that only He can give us to help us all get through this great loss. Henry was first a customer but he quickly became more than a friend, almost a fatherly figure. He was one of a few people who knew where I'd been, where I came from and where I was now. He never passed judgement and was a great influence in our lives. Henry helped people most others had turned their backs on and tried to help them get back on their feet. Henry was a man of 2nd and 3rd chances. Everyone knows Henry was a great teller of stories and jokes and good advice. We are blessed to have been a part of his life, birthday parties, events, outings hospitality and his legacy. Grace put a pep in his step and they were such a great couple. Linda and I will miss Henry's cooking, our couples dinners and great fellowship. I know he loved us and we're sure he knew we loved him and Grace. We extend our arms in embrace to the Homrighuas Family!

Henry R I P was a dear friend-we both had our Lord take our spouses. We worked close togather on T S R A activities and projects for several years . He is missed !

 

Carole Cappadona Fleming posted on 4/7/18

It is with heavy heart I send this note to Henry’s family and friends. Henry and I met in 9th grade and became close friends until his death. He was a close friend and perhaps his best friend of my late husband Jim. They knew each other as young boyhood friends. Jim often spoke of he and Henry riding their horses to school. They both lived near 61st Street. Carole Cappadona Fleming

When we went by the house yesterday, Rosemary said without hesitation , “ Does grandpa know we are here?” Tre told her, “Rosemary, grandpa is dead baby, remember?” She turned and looked at us in silence, tears streaming down her eyes and said, “oh,yeah” and went to sit in the couch in silence. She loves you so much and misses your little texts and calls. She still has your messages & wont delete them. Hondo, Joseph & Jason miss you as well. We just can’t all believe this is happening. Rest In Peace

Chris Lanier posted on 4/5/18

Henry was indeed a Texan who invoked that larger than life persona in the Security Industry. His indelible mark is permanent as a result. Deepest Condolences from the Lanier Family- Joe and Chris

We miss hearing your voice; sitting with you at the baseball games as we watch Hondo play. All the little things. The kids are carrying a heavy heart. You were loved & admired by all. You’d be so proud of your sons, Tre’ and Stephen. They put together the perfect send off for you. I am so proud of them both. Tre will be ok. I promise to always love & take care of him and always be by his side and am there for his brother as well. You and mom raised some very good men who will always love and remember you. Rest In Peace with the lord. We are at peace knowing you are reunited once again, with the love of your life mom.

A Successful Man “That man is a success – who has lived well, laughed often and loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it; who has never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it.; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.”

 

Paula Moreau posted on 4/4/18

Sweet Henry - you are going to be missed dearly. Saddens me you left too soon from this earth. There were so many plans you had for your life with Grace by your side. You showed us all what a blessing to have had the chance to meet you, and what a great man you are and for us all to have spent time with you, was an honor. Lord Jesus, I know that You are close to those that are broken-hearted and grieving in their soul. I know You rescue those that are crushed in spirit. I ask that you draw near to Your many children who are facing times of sadness and loss and draw each one ever closer into Your precious arms of love and support.

My heart is very heavy due to hearing about Henry's sudden departure. So sad to have to say good-bye to such a God-fearing and loving man who was enjoying life to the fullest. Lifting up Henry's family in prayers, especially for his loving significant partner, Grace. May the loving memories you had together comfort you at this very difficult time. I know you both had such a special bond for each other and many wonderful plans for the future. We are so sorry for your loss. I love you, Grace.

I will miss Henry. He always worked so hard for our industry in many ways, both visible and behind the scenes. That and his integrity were such great examples to others. He was always paying attention to what was going on and he didn't miss much. He also had a great sense of humor and was a good story teller! God Bless you Henry and my sincere condolences to your family. May they have peace.
