Perry Bruce Henry

Perry Bruce Henry, 68, died on Feb. 20 at St. Luke's Hospital in Boise, Idaho. He had heart surgery in 2005 for a condition to which his death was ultimately attributed.

Bruce was an amazing youngster, fascinated by nature and all that surrounded him. As a small boy, in the summer, he was known for falling into the creek behind his house as many as six times in one day. He loved fishing and camping. He was always a voracious reader and later in life he became a talented writer.

Bruce graduated from Moses Lake High School in 1957, where he played varsity football. He joined the U.S. Air Force and served with the Intelligence Service on the northeastern border of Turkey. He later graduated from Big Bend Community College in Moses Lake and went on to attend the University of Washington. His occupations included millwright, mill sawyer, sugar refinery worker, barber, bartender, auto sales, residential real estate, power plant developer, marketer of vacation real estate in Mexico, manager of a family photo venue and marketer for a mechanical contractor.

Bruce developed a love for cross-country skiing and long-distance hiking in Idaho's Sawtooth Mountains. He was also active in the Ketchum VFW, raising funds to assist severely injured veterans.

Bruce's ashes will be spread in the Sawtooth Mountains at a later date. He will never be forgotten.
