Leon Henry, 86, passed away surrounded by his loving family on February 1, 2019. Leon is survived by his beautiful wife Thelma, his devoted daughters Lynn James (Tom), Gail Katz (the late Joel) and Barbara Voudy (Frank) and his sister, Harlene Marks. Leon was happiest when surrounded by all his grandchildren; Ron, Tommy, Erica, Joshua, Jason, Kevin, Frankie and Emily and two who were taken too soon, Geri and Charles. Leon was a graduate of University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and received his Master’s from Columbia University’s Business School. Upon graduation, Leon started his own company in the direct marketing industry that had a successful run of over 60 years. He lived a full and amazing life. He always found the positive in everything and did not know the meaning of the word quit. He was a great listener and dispensed the best advice whenever needed (or not). Leon and Thelma loved the theater, opera and traveling the world. He will never be forgotten and will be sorely missed.
