Henri was a man of few words, but with a huge loving heart. He was caring and selfless. His friends knew that while he possessed little, he was generous with what little he did have along with his time. His energy was spent putting others first to make sure they were happy. He was the glue that kept them all together, a damn good friend.
In the words of his friends, he was:
Inventive, resourceful, innovative, crafty, creative – in a practical way, brilliant, too damn clever for his own good, a perpetual tinkerer.
His resourcefulness and genius played into his passions for technology and computers, RC cars, flying drones, Pokémon Go & Ingress. He was forever tinkering with a computer, a server or setting up something for one of the many projects he was involved with. Many people will miss his caring, empathetic presence in the online realms. His inventiveness and resourcefulness weren’t limited to electronic pursuits. If you needed something mechanical figured out, an engine worked on, a toilet replaced, drywall fixed, he could help or do the whole project. He truly was a jack of all trades.
He was fearless. A friend who taught skiing once said; “Give me Henri and I can turn him into a downhill racer, he isn’t afraid of crashing”. He lived. He had adventures in New York with his friends and also in Massachusetts and Florida. There are stories…
He will be missed. His absence leaves a huge hole in many, many people’s hearts.
Henri, mom and dad love you forever…..
