It is with great sadness that the family of the late Henry Seymour announce his passing at the Central Newfoundland Regional Health Care Center, Grand Falls-Windsor. He was 78 years of age.
At the age of 16 years, Henry started work with the AND company. In 1965 he married the love of his life, his wife Lossie and they spent 56 years together. They moved to Sudbury, Ontario where Henry worked in different factories. Later he worked in the Nickel Mines in Sudbury, where he retired after 30 years and they returned to Botwood to enjoy life together there.

He loved going to the Salvation Army Men’s Fellowship and volunteering with the Red Cross.
