Henry Junior Chapman, 82 of Pisgah Forest went to meet his maker on Tuesday November 28th, 2017.
Our lives are forever changed; our Henry brought smiles to the faces of everyone who knew him and some who didn’t. He usually had a joke to tell while he made his rounds to the Habitat for Humanity, Good Will and walking his dog, Trouble, in the Pisgah National Forest.
He and wife Renate shared 56 years of marriage; he was a close friend and father to Richard and filled a loving space in the heart of Cindy, his daughter in law. He also leaves behind a brother, Charles Chapman of Fairview, NC.
Henry attended and graduated from Tamassee DAR (Daughters of the American Republic), School in Tamassee, SC. He was drafted into the Army where he served two years and met Renate, who is originally from Germany. He returned home, to continue his employment with Olin where he retired with the same company, then Ecusta in 1998; Henry enjoyed every minute of his 19-year retirement.
Survivors include his wife of 56 years, Renate Chapman, son; Richard Chapman and wife Cynthia of Pisgah Forest and brother; Charles Edward Chapman and wife Lou of Fairview.
