Henry loved his family and helped every member in any way he could.  He was a gear cutter (Class A) with Dresser Jeffrey Manufacturing for over 30 years.  Henry also served as the union steward at Dresser Jeffrey for many years.  He loved to travel around the country – the highlight of which was the Herkimer Diamond Mine in New York.  Henry was a longtime, active member of the Alum Creek Friends Church.

  • The youth of Alum Creek called him “Peppermint Bill”. He always had a supply of pepermints to pass out on Sunday’s to the kids. He was a great Christian Man of Faith.
    God welcomed him with open arms. We will be praying for the family, so sorry for your loss.

  • Really sorry to hear of Bill`s passing. We worked together at Jefferys for 30 yrs. Would see him at the Pilot 61/71 and we`d talk about work and laugh at alot of things that happened at Jefferys or what prank was done to a co-worker.
