Edward M. “Mike” Henry, 75, of Voorhees, a retired deacon of the Camden Diocese, died Dec. 27.
Ordained in 2009, and most recently serving at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Camden, he was also a retired division captain with the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary, and retired vice president with AMC Theater.
Deacon Henry “was a quiet man who developed a great passion for helping the poor,” said Deacon Leo McBlain, director of the Office of the Diaconate for the Diocese of Camden.
“During his diaconate formation years, he put his secular management experience to good use in the St. Vincent de Paul Shop in Camden along with various other charitable programs.”
Deacon Henry was the husband of Anne (nee McGovern) Henry; the father of Michael S., Sean M. and the late Blair A.; grandfather of Michael, Devin, Dan, Sean, Joey, and Emily; and the brother of Helen Haynes.
