Henry was born to Henry and Suzanna Quiring on July 28, 1932 in Aberdeen, Saskatchewan. In 1956 he married Sarah Goertzen and they raised six children. For a number of years the Quiring’s resided in Kaslo, British Columbia where Henry worked in a sawmill. In 1976 they moved back to Taber where he was employed by the sugar factory.
After sharing thirty nine years together, Sarah passed away in 1996. Henry met Beatrice Penner (nee Giesbrecht) and they married in August 1999. They spent more than thirteen wonderful years together and did everything as a couple. He was a happy, content man who loved his family, enjoyed his friends and loved the Lord. He enjoyed puttering in his garden and taking drives in the country. He was a good man who will be sadly missed but fondly remembered.
