Robert Henry

January 8, 1947 — December 9, 2023


ROBERT FRANK HENRY (BOB) Bob Henry, Age 76, passed away unexpectedly but peacefully December 09, 2023 at Regions Hospital with his family by his side. He was born January 08,1947 in Bakersfield California, son of Henry F Goldammer and LaFrance A Eisenbrand.

Bob graduated from Roosevelt Military Academy in Aledo, Illinois, class of 1965. Following his passion for cars he proceeded to grow roots in Minnesota. Successfully owning and operating his own Mobile gas and service station where he ultimately met the love of his life and his EVERYTHING! Gretchen R Henry and Bob settled in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. They celebrated 47 beautiful years together in marriage! “HON…. Words can not explain my love for you!”

Bob’s actions throughout his life and even his final wishes say it all. He would give everything and even more than what he had at times so that his wife and family could have more than he had! Being a father and best friend, he did the best that he possibly could to help his son to become the MAN that he is today! Not an easy task, and yet he was so proud of him and all of what he has become! Guiding his daughter (Little Pumpkin) towards every opportunity of a better life than he could ever have, Daddy's little girl always had a very special place in his heart!

(BUMPA) Funny how one word can almost say it all. For the last 16 years of his life he was able to enjoy an abundance of memories. His special one-on-one time with all his grandchildren. Being at the hockey rink and softball field cheering them on (The Bigs). He cherished the time he had to be silly with his grandchildren (The Littles). No Matter what, he was always ready with a HUG for everyone. He had such a wonderful spirit! Big heart for dogs, and always open to anyone for a conversation. The type of man that would do almost anything in a heartbeat to help without question, he just genuinely cared about his family and friends.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his sisters- Sharon Chioni, Dayle Ouellette. Survived by his wife Gretchen R Henry, son Michael R Henry (Ryan), daughter Kristy J Dean (Nathan), Grandchildren- Kylee, Mya, Lily, Naysa, and many nieces and nephews.

A Celebration of Life will be held privately with family.
