On behalf of the St. Joseph Regional High School Class of 1972, I would like to extend sincere heart felt condolences to Henri's family. Henri was a very active and a well loved member of our class. He never refused a request for a favor and could always be counted on to help a classmate or lend a hand for a school activity. He was a good friend to all. May he rest in peace.
