  1. Greg was a good hearted stand up guy. I loved and looked up to him my whole life. I’m happy and extremely proud to call him my brother. I will forever cherish the time I shared with him, and the memories he imprinted on my heart and soul. My heart will never be whole again as he was serious part of it. I love Greg.

  2. I only worked with Greg (driving bus) for a very short time. He immediately felt like a close friend. Extremely easy to talk to, always happy & funny. Once I was going to my car after work & thought I was only one there. Greg snuck up & grabbed my lower leg scaring me. He laughed hard as I uneffectively punched his arm. Cried when I heard & will miss not being able to get to know him. So sorry to all his family

  3. Greg was a wonderful man/father. He loved his kids more than anything in life. Even though we were divorced he still came to my house and did the things a husband would do. Mowed my yard and shovel any driveway and walk, cook and clean my house and always made sure I had enough air in my tires to hit the highway. I will miss Greg so much. He could make a person laugh at his jokes. RIP my friend.
    Love Shelly Henry

  4. Rest in Peace Henry; you will be truly missed and never forgotten! That laugh, that smile, one of a kind
    Love Miss Jackson

  5. REST IN PEACE:I will miss you so much you were a great cook and person in general you taught me so much stuff I am so happy to be one of your sons. I pray that god will let you in his kingdom as well RIP to Larry Gregory Henry Jr. You were the best father I could ask for.
