Obituary for Owen I. Henry, D.O.

Dr. Owen I. Henry, D.O., 90, of Lapeer, took his last breath on Sunday, October 1, 2017, and what a perfect day…”The Lord’s Day”!!. Doc Henry was born on November 27, 1926 in New Berlinville, Pennsylvania, to Isaac Samuel and Edna Marie (Ziegenfusse) Henry.

Owen was proud to have served his country in the U.S. Navy. He attended Albright University in Reading, Pennsylvania for undergraduate studies and the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine for his medical degree. Dr. Henry moved to Michigan for his Residency at Pontiac Osteopathic Hospital. He had a private practice as an Obstetrician-Gynecologist, here in Lapeer, for most of his professional career. Doc was a devoted and active member of Grace Episcopal Church in Lapeer for many many years. He served in many capacities at the church… a member of the choir, soup kitchen volunteer, vestry member, always doing whatever he could to help. Doc was an exceptional woodcarver, not everyone knew that. He was a humble, kind, articulate, and caring…he had a life full of great stories and great accomplishments. Doc will be missed by all who knew him.
