Being an avid outdoorsman he enjoyed working on his farm, riding horses, fishing and hunting, especially out west. He was a former motocross rider, who also enjoyed car racing, boating, competitive road bikes, and snowboarding. Aviation was one of his biggest passions and he obtained his pilot’s license. Henry also enjoyed being on the water and enjoyed scuba diving and barefoot water skiing.

On May 21, 1999 he married Suzanne Walker Reynolds, who survives of the residence.
