Quincy – Henry grew up in North Quincy, MA. He was a proud graduate of North Quincy High School. He holds an undergraduate degree from the Mass Maritime Academy in Marine Engineering.

When Henry wasn’t teaching, he could be found at the Squantum Yacht Club where, over the years, he held the role of Commodore. He was an active supporter of Quincy Bay Race Week. He loved to walk by the ocean, either on Wollaston Boulevard or on the Cape Cod Canal.
