It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Allison Lewis Henry, which occurred at the Moncton Hospital on Saturday, September 12, 2020 at the age of 84.
Allison was a lifelong resident of Salisbury, NB and an upstanding member of his community, which was reflected in his volunteer firefighting in his younger years. He was an avid gardener and enjoyed reaping the benefits of his harvest, only after a summer spent at his cottage in Shediac, NB. Those closest to Al will remember his amazing storytelling and his wonderful knack for telling a joke.
He worked with CTV Atlantic for over 30 years; a job he loved and took great pride in, especially in his coverage of the 1988 Calgary Olympics. He held great affection for his work family, and they for him, often calling him "Big Al". He was also a cherished member of The Victory Life Centre, Riverview, NB.
His most treasured joy in life was his family; Katherine, his loving wife of over 60 years; their sons Mitchell (Denise) of Moncton, NB, David (Kim) of Halifax, NS, and Jeffrey of Moncton, NB; grandchildren, Alexis, Morganne, Rebecca, Madison, and Colton; great-grandchildren, Ava, Jesse, Xavier, Rileigh, and Michael. He is also survived by his brother, Mark Henry of Moncton, NB as well as several nieces and nephews.
Allison was predeceased by his parents, Harold and Vivian (Lewis) Henry, and his brother, William Henry.
