Henry was preceded in death by his parents, a daughter, Gloria Elaine Boone, infant son, Willie Allen Minor, a brother, McKinley Minor and a sister, Georgia Edwards.
Henry confessed a hope in Christ at an early age and united with Mt. Zion Cumberland Presbyterian Church in America, Madison, Alabama. He also sung with the Ever Ready Gospel Quartet, Triana, Alabama.
Henry was a fun loving person, loved to laugh, joke and tease people. His favorite pet name for all the small children in the family was “You Little Rat”, and they loved it. He also made friends every where he went young or old, black or white, he loved people.
