Henry R. Zachary
Henry went to be with Jesus Christ and our Blessed Mother on Wednesday, December 16, 2020. He was born on July 15, 1930. Henry is survived by his wife of 60 years Barbara Zachary; children, Evelyn Vanderpool, Henry Zachary, Rick Zachary (Shelly), Joanne (JoJo) Rodriguez (David), Elisa Zachary; grandchildren, Joshua (Amanda), Jerome, Barbara (Chris), Brianna, Logan, Kayla (Gevin), David Louis (Marissa), Adam Henry, Rebecca Jean, Rachel Anne, Peter Joseph, Kenneth and Jacob; seven great grandchildren; brothers, Charles Zachary, Ronnie Henriquez and many nieces and nephews.
Our dad served our country in the Armed Forces from 1953-1958. He was a tile setter by trade. Our dad loved his family and his brothers very much. He always encouraged his children and grandchildren to read, learn and to go to school. He also encouraged us all to work. He didn't understand going to work late, sick days or vacation days. He enjoyed feeding the birds every morning and his dogs. He loved animals and had his own spot at the Albuquerque Downs where he used to enjoy the horse races. Besides his animals, he enjoyed his chocolate desserts. Every time we watch Jeopardy, The Price is Right or Let's Make a Deal we will think of our dad. We were very blessed to have our dad for 90 years and if only we could hear him say "Oopa" one more time. Rest in peace Dad. May Almighty God bless you and keep you. We already miss you!
Due to Covid a private Rosary and family service is pending. Our dad will be laid to rest at the Santa Fe National Cemetery.
