Harry G. “Tim” Henry, 83, Fargo, died September 23rd in Bethany Retirement Living Center on University. Tim was born May 29th, 1937 in Galesburg, ND to parents, Harry and Nettie Henry. His grandfather invited his older brothers to come into the house and meet “Tiny Tim” and the moniker stuck. Tim graduated from Galesburg High School in 1955 and served in the US Army until he was discharged in 1957. He briefly attended North Dakota State University at which time he met Vern Hunter who became a steadfast friend for life. Deciding college wasn’t for him, Tim moved and worked in Idaho and Oregon and then returned to North Dakota where he accepted a position in highway construction, which eventually led him to Wyoming where he lived for several years. It was there that he suffered a debilitating stroke at the age of 36 followed by a year of rehabilitation in the Veteran’s Hospital in Minnesota, moving to Fargo in 1976. Up until that point Tim had admittedly lived an unhealthy lifestyle and realized that it was time to make a change. In 1977 he quit drinking and forced himself through detox on his own. He recognized and appreciated the help of Alcoholics Anonymous and was proud to maintain sobriety for the rest of his life. Even though he faced many struggles, he had a positive attitude and seldom complained about his physical limitations. He enjoyed his life in Fargo and appreciated the countless friends and acquaintances he made over the past 43 years.
He is survived by a sister Betty (Lynn) Bring, four nieces and four nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents and three brothers: Merle (Evelyn), Leroy, Carl (Marilyn), one niece and two nephews.
In accordance with his wishes no service will be held. Cremation has taken place with burial to follow at a later date.
