Virginia Beach, Va.—Henry Calvin Galumbeck passed away Nov. 23, 2013.

Henry was born in Norfolk, Va., on Jul. 24, 1920. For 93 years, he made people feel better about themselves with a kind word, a pat on the back, or just a warm smile. Throughout his life, he built relationships, whether business, social or personal. Henry used his humanity to strengthen others. His sage advice, usually epitomized through an amusing anecdote, was heeded by all that could listen. They were better off because of it.

So, whether you knew Henry or not, reach out to another. Share a drink or a meal and a story. Build a relationship. Strengthen us all, in honor of Henry.

He was predeceased by his wife of 47 years, Suzanne Galumbeck. He is survived by a son, Matthew Galumbeck and his wife, Cindy; and two beautiful granddaughters, Alix and Bryn who were his little angels.
