’47 Frederic C. “Mike” Henry, MD (1923-2015) 


Frederic C. "Mike" Henry, 92, passed away peacefully on September 14, 2015, at Burcham Hills in East Lansing, Michigan. He was born near Walbridge, Ohio to the late Arthur F. and Meta C. Henry and grew up in Monroeville. Mike graduated in pre-med from Heidelberg College, served in the United States Army, and then earned a medical degree from The Ohio State University. After practicing family medicine for several years, he turned to pediatrics, completing a pediatric residency and then establishing a pediatric practice in Toledo. In the latter part of his career, he became involved in the Medical College of Ohio as a Clinical Professor of Pediatrics, finally joining The Toledo Hospital as Senior Vice President for Medical Affairs, from which he retired in 1989. He was actively involved in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, The American Heart Association, The United Way, and the Toledo Area Board of Health, as well as a number of executive committees. In addition to these professional associations, he was a 32nd Degree Mason, a Shriner and a former president of the Slagle Trout Club. Mike enjoyed many winters in Florida as well as fishing, hunting, and traveling, but his favorite activity was spending time with his family. He was preceded in death by an infant son, Frederic C. Henry II; his parents, and sisters, Jacqueline (Jackie) Roscoe and Esme (Jimmie) Burrer. Survivors include his wife of 69 years, Mary; daughters, Anne E. Henry, Susan H. Ford (Thomas), Rebecca C. Henry (David Wright); grandchildren, Jonathan F. Bleeke, Jennifer A. Diamond (Josh), Matthew R. Ford (Halle), Rebecca C. Ford (Mike Hanley), Cameron D. Henry and 5 great-grandchildren. A private family service will be held at a later date. Memorials may be made to the charity of the donor’s choice.
