After being honorably discharged in 1977, he worked as a Federal Employee and earned a mechanical engineering degree. George is survived by his beloved wife of over 64 years, Soon Ja Henry, and was the beloved father of Christine Henry Jones, Steven Henry, George Henry, Jr. (deceased), and his fur-baby, Prince Henry. He is survived by several in-laws; Vincent Hurteau (son-in-law), Gloria Henry (sister-in-law), Bong Han Kim (brother-in-law), Young Han Kim (brother-in-law) and Young Hwa Kim (sister-in-law). In addition, he has numerous nieces and nephews in Maryland, Indiana and South Korea.
