Henry, Q.C., on Wednesday, September 25th, 2019.Bob will be lovingly remembered by Beverley, his wife of 56 years, his daughter, Elizabeth Henry-Walford (Rob) and his son, Michael Henry (Jerel) and his grandchildren, Matthew and Patrick Walford, Clare, Margaret and William Henry. He is predeceased by his eldest son, William James (Bill) Henry.Bob was called to the Bar in 1956. He began practising law with the late Mr. Elmore Houser, Q.C. who was a wise and kind mentor to him.
Bob was awarded Queen’s Counsel and he rose to become a senior partner of the firm of Harries, Houser.
In 1985, he helped found our law firm of Houser, Henry & Syron. In his later years, he mentored and worked closely with his son Michael who succeeded him as Managing Partner of our firm.
Bob’s clients and our team highly respected his practical legal advice. In turn, he was always grateful for the trust invested in him by lawyers and his many clients.
He was a member in good standing of the Law Society of Ontario for more than 60 years and was made a life member in 2006. He was also an honorary member of the Canadian Bar Association.
