On October 8, 2019, after a well-fought battle against cancer Wayne Richard Henry (Waynie) passed peacefully from this life. Wayne was born on October 9, 1964 in St. Andrew, Jamaica. He grew up in the suburbs of Montego Bay. After completing high school, Wayne studied architectural drawing at the College of Arts Science and Technology in Kingston. Wayne, his parents and siblings migrated to New York in 1985. While there, he studied history at the College of Staten Island. He worked for JP Morgan Chase for several years before moving to Maryland in 2009. In Maryland, Wayne continued to work in banking, and later, the Bridges Center, a nonprofit in Washington DC that serves people with disabilities. After spending decades working in corporate America, at Bridges, Wayne realized how much he enjoyed working with people, and more specifically, with people with disabilities. Wayne was an avid reader, gardener and an accomplished handyman. Knowing Wayne meant rarely having to call a plumber, mason, carpenter or painter. He was a walking encyclopedia and could speak intelligently about sports, auto mechanics, foreign affairs, history, architecture, art – on any topic of discussion.

Wayne was born to Gloria Maud (née Miller) and the late Keith Lloyd Henry. He was preceded in death by his father, sisters Sharon and Grace and his brother, Christopher. Wayne leaves with warm and fond memories, his mother, sisters Mauva (Courtney), Sandra, Michelle (Miles), Claudine (John) and his brother Craig; nieces and nephews Mark (Dione), Camisha, Travis, Avril (Rutho), Thaad (Arielis), Efe (godson), Adora, Jack and Henry. Wayne is also survived by his dear aunts Kathleen (Cooper), Ivel, Vivolyn, Carmen, Joy (Juan), Cynthia (Horace), Michelle and Diane; his uncles Baldain, Bobsey (Verona), Albert (Vashti), Nathaniel, Basil; brothers-in-law John and Sherin; loving cousins; cherished “sister-brother” friends and many other relatives and friends.

The family is grateful for the selfless acts of kindness, prayers and comfort that friends and family have provided. The family also expresses its sincerest gratitude to the kindness and generosity of the staff at Howard County General, Johns Hopkins Medicine and to the doctors and nurses at Maryland Oncology Hematology- Columbia.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Thursday October 17th at 12 noon at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church (Wilde Lake Interfaith Center), 10431 Twin Rivers Rd., Columbia, MD 21044. Interment will take place at a later date in St. Peter’s Cemetery in New York. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be directed to the Howard Hospital Foundation, 5755 Cedar Lane, Columbia, MD 21044 or at
