Henry Wayne Mintz has gone home and is in the arms of God after more than a decade dealing with the trials of Parkinson's disease and damage of his Sagemont home to Hurricane Harvey’s floods. The loss of a good man has left a hole in our hearts, but we are grateful for his freedom from suffering.
Henry was born June 9, 1944 in Houston, Texas, son of Sam and Eula Mintz. He passed from this life to the next on February 17, 2018, with family at his side.
Those who knew Henry will always remember his sharp wit, his barbecue skills and his kind eyes, which sparkled when he told one of his signature jokes. Henry was a family man with a strong work ethic. A willing party host on a moment’s notice, he and his wife Cathy built a home where everyone wanted to visit, eat, drink and stay awhile.
Henry graduated from Milby High School and pursued a successful career as a journeyman electrician through the IBEW Local Union 716, eventually taking employment at Clean Harbors in Deer Park, from where he retired.
Left to carry on his legacy of love and family are wife Cathy Mintz, daughter Jennifer Mintz, son Ryan, daughter-in-law Yvonne and grandchildren, Mia and Justin Mintz, who loved their pawpaw beyond measure. He also is survived by brothers Edwin Mintz and wife Ann, James Dale Mintz, brothers- and sisters-in-law Neil Woodard, Shari and Bob Miller, Martha and Doug Bragg, Alan and Laura Woodard, Barbara Mintz and many loving nieces and nephews.
He is proceeded in death by his parents, brother Donald Mintz and infant brother Reagan.
The family is grateful for the prayers and well wishes during Henry's extended illness and for the many kindnesses extended to them in the aftermath of the flood.
Henry’s life will be celebrated at a memorial service at 2 p.m. Friday, February 23 at Clayton Funeral Home, 5530 Broadway Street, Pearland, TX. A reception will follow at Billy’s Hall, 4070 Wells Drive, Pearland.
