Donald Paul Henry was born March 24, 1949, to Calvin and Helen (Lindstad) Henry in Belle Fourche, SD. He attended school in several states, as they traveled with his dad’s work, settling in Sturgis in 1959. Don graduated from Sturgis High School in 1968.
In March of 1969, Don enlisted in the Army. He did basic training at Fort Benning, GA. In 1970, he deployed to Vietnam for one year. On leave after his tour, he met his “baby.” The next day he asked her to marry him and they were engaged that day. Don and Aneita Remington were married June 2, 1972, in Fairpoint, SD.
Paula Marie joined this family in May of 1973. In February of 1976, along came Donna D’Ann to complete the family.
Don served 11 years with the South Dakota National Guard, the last six of those being active Army attached to the Guard. He was proud to have served his country, as did his mother, father, and brother.
They moved to Arizona in 1985, where Don worked as a Corrections Officer for the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office. South Dakota drew them home in 1994, eventually settling in Stoneville, and recently moving to Sturgis. While at Stoneville, Don worked at Cenex in Union Center for 10 years.
Don loved to tinker with most anything, but cars especially. He usually had his little “grease monkey” (Donna) alongside him.
