Henry was born in Briscoe County near Silverton, Texas on January 20, 1929.

He is preceded in death by his wife, Dahlia, his parents, Carl and Maude Alice Russell, one brother, Wayne, one sister, Vergie, and one grandson, David.
He is survived by his two sons, Mike of Tucumcari, New Mexico and Wayland of Lathrop, Missouri; two sisters, Bonnie of Citrus Heights, California and Sylba, his twin, (or as he referred to her, His Womb Mate) of Willis Point, Texas; 12 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.
He was very active in every aspect of church work, not only pastoring, but also pioneering churches, and serving as a Presbyter in numerous districts. He loved to play the guitar and sang with his wife. He was very firm in his beliefs, but always a gentle and kind person who had something humorous ready to share with everyone.
