DOHERTY, David “Henry” – Passed away peacefully at the Louise Marshall Hospital on Wednesday, June 29, 2022 in his 78th year. Beloved husband of Sandra for 45 years.

Those wishing to make a donation in memory of Henry are asked to consider the Canadian Lung Association or Meningitis Foundation Canada. 


Henry was the most kind hearted, open, and accepting man I've ever met. I can't even remember him without that smile. He affectionately referred to me as his blackanese son and was the kind of man you could talk to about anything and he would always give you his best and honest answer. He was just a pure good hearted guy who always made you feel like family and will be missed very much. My love and deepest condolences to Sandra, Chris and family members. Happy trails, pop. Thank you for the memories.

Uncle Henry you will be greatly missed. I love you so much. I remember the last time you were home I was pregnant with my son Aiden and you looked at me and said it's hard to believe that my baby is having a baby. I am so sorry for your families loss of you.

Dear Uncle Henry. We go back a long way. Grammy Doherty had a phone on the wall with a crank. She made the best molasses cookies. You and I and Judy and Frank and Jeffery and Richard and Emery made quite a gang. All I ever had to do to get you laughing was to mention my first cigarette. Fond memories. I shall miss myou always.

It is so profound that we are saying good bye. Uncle Henry you are without a doubt one of the best story tellers and bull shitters in our family. You loved us all and made us laugh until we cried! You knew how to give the best hugs and you loved a good debate on whatever the Hot Topic of the Day was! I love you always xo
