He graduated from Stevens High School in the class of 1965. In 1966 he joined the U.S. Air Force and was a mechanic on the C130 air planes during the Vietnam War, serving four years.
Returning home, he continued his life long career as a “junk man” working for recycling services; he retired in 2009.
During his career his passion for the Lord made him a teacher of the Gospel to children of many ages. He was also a leader in teaching boys in Royal Rangers.
He met the love of his life Bernice (Roy) Cote and their son Damien Bailey in 1984. They were married on June 22, 1985.
Survivors include his wife, Bernice; their son, Damien; stepdaughter, Tammie Ferguson; stepson, Scott Lizotte; brothers, Charles Cote, Timothy Cote; granddaughters, Madalynn Bailey and Emily Ferguson; great granddaughter, Brooklyn Ferguson; and two special little girls, Melanie and Jenna Coleman.
He was predeceased by his parents and a very special grandson, Henry Daniel Ferguson III.
When he wasn’t serving the Lord or working, you could find him in his other love, out fishing.
A celebration of his life with a potluck barbeque will be held at 44 Thrasher Road in Claremont on July 28th at 1 PM.
