CHADWICK – Steven Burton Henry, age 70, of Chadwick, Illinois passed away Thursday, July 4, 2019 at Veterans Memorial Hospital, Iowa City, Iowa, due to complications of heart failure.
A funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday, July 9, 2019 at the Law-Jones Funeral Home, Mt. Carroll, Illinois. Burial will be in Chadwick Cemetery, rural Chadwick, with full Military Rites. Visitation will be held from 12 noon – 2 p.m. Tuesday at the Funeral Home. Online condolences may be left for the family at www.lawjonesfuneralhome.com.
Steve was born September 4, 1948 in Freeport, Illinois, the son of Dwain and Mary Ann (McNabb) Henry. He was raised in Pearl City along with his brother, Jim, and sister, Judy. Steve served in the United States Army during Vietnam, receiving the Bronze Star Medal for Heroism. One of his battalion’s trucks carrying ammunition hit a mine and exploded. The Bronze Star Award announcement reads, “With complete disregard for his own safety, Specialist Henry evacuated an injured comrade to safety. Although receiving burns, Specialist Henry continued to help the medics give first aid to the other wounded men. His valorous actions were responsible for saving a man’s life.” Steve never told this story.
After his military service, Steve settled in Chadwick, Illinois. He began working at Handle Implement in 1971, and remained employed as a mechanic until his retirement from Birkey’s in 2015. He was very knowledgeable in the repair and maintenance of International Harvesters.
Steve will be dearly missed by his son, John (Sharon) Henry of Maxwell, Iowa and several nieces, nephews and good friends. Steve was preceded in death by his parents, his siblings, and a son, Joel Burton Henry.
