Obituary

Henry L. McNary, age 84, of Cassopolis, died peacefully Saturday evening, March 7, 2020 in his residence in the comfort of his familyโ€™s presence.

He was born February 18, 1936 in Cassopolis, Michigan, the youngest of five sons of Tom and Ollie McNary. He married Maxine Shelton December 12, 1959 in Calvin Township, Michigan.

Henry was a likeable guy and a hard worker who took pride in taking care of his family. He was a welder at Clark Equipment Company. Following his retirement he worked at Cass County Medical Care Facility, where he was able to be close to his mother, Ollie McNary, who was a resident. Wherever he was, Henry and his co-workers enjoyed their jobs and had fun together. He and his good friend, George Purlee, were lifelong friends, starting from when they went through Kindergarten together in the Red Brick School. Henry and George also managed to get into their share of mischief together.

Henry has been a member of Chain Lake Missionary Baptist Church since an early age. In addition to him and his wife being married in the church, he had served as Sunday School Superintendent, Treasurer and a member of the Choir, and still served as Deacon up until the time of his passing.

Henry will be greatly missed by family and friends. He is survived by his wife of sixty years, Maxine McNary of Cassopolis; five children, LaVaughn (Myra) McNary, Sr. of Tarpon Springs, Florida, Sheila (Charles) Nelms of St. Petersburg, Florida, Brenda McNary of Dowagiac, Michigan, Mary (Darryl, Sr.) Young, Springdale, Maryland, Thomas (Karen) McNary of Las Vegas, Nevada; fourteen grandchildren, Lauren McNary, Madison McNary, Leah (Benito) Amaral, LaVaughn McNary, Jamica Nelms, Faith Nelms, Ricki McNary, Shaniqua McNary, Alydia Young, Darryl Young, Jr. India Young, Trinity Young, Shatoyia (Keith) Nelson, Gary Burns; two great grandchildren, Damien McNary, Alani Burns; and a host of nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; four brothers, Charles McNary, Leslie McNary, Earl McNary, Cornelius McNary; and several nieces and nephews.
