Dr. Maxwell Henry Dies

Dr. Maxwell Henry of Rosegate died at his home on Nov. 18. He was born on July 2, 1923, the youngest son of Samuel and Ethel (Rice) Henry of St. John’s, Antigua. He was predeceased by his brothers: John Rowan, Samuel, Bert, and Reverand Donald C. Henry, and sisters: Mae Henry Archer and Iris Henry Wynter.
He is survived by his beloved wife, Grace; sons: Jason and Stuart: brother, Courtenay; as well as a large and loving family of in-laws, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends too numerous to mention.
During his youth in Antigua he developed a love of music and began playing trumpet, a passion that remained with him all his life.
He graduated from Tuskegee Institute School of Veterinary Medicine and spent the majority of his career with the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. His work took him across the United States and eventually to St. Croix, his home since 1971.
A lifelong Methodist, he became a member of the Ebenezer Methodist Church, where he was a member of the Men’s Fellowship as well as a local preacher.
His life was characterized by his love of family, his devotion to God and His Church, his sense of humor, and his concern for the well-being of those around him.
A memorial service will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 30, at the Ebenezer Methodist Church in Christiansted with viewing at 10 a.m. and service at 11 a.m. A funeral service will be held at the Bethel Methodist Church, South Hill, Anguilla, on Friday, Dec. 2, with interment to follow at the Bethel Methodist Cemetery.
All arrangements are by James Memorial Funeral Home Inc.
