Henry "Hienie" Leinon, 91, of Second Ave. North, Hurley, died peacefully Wednesday, October 21, 2020, at home, surrounded by his loving family.

Hienie was born May 20, 1929, in Montreal, son of the late Henry J and Cecilia (Baron) Leinon, and was raised in Montreal and Hurley, where he attended Montreal Grade School and graduated from J.E. Murphy High School in 1947. He proudly served in the U.S. Army, stationed in Korea, from 1951-1953.

I have been the Hurley Legion Post 58 Adjutant for many years and Henry was a valued member for 31 years. He also installed carpeting in my living room, computer room and two bedrooms. Our kitchen and bathrooms got new lineolum. He did all this working alone. I can still remember when he had to come back the next day, he gave me a box of sticky nails. I had old squeaky boards and I nailed everything down tight for him the next day. Rest in Peace Henry. Bob Traczyk

Remember me when you hear the wind blow.
I am with God, I need you to know.
He called my name, and I went to see
If the voice I heard was speaking to me.
He took my hand, we walked along
The road to heaven, where I belong.
The angels sang so sweet and clear.
They sang of love and that Jesus is near.
I felt his touch, I saw his face,
I knew in an instant I was in his grace.
He spoke to me, I heard him say,
You are home now child, you have found your way.
So remember me when you hear the wind blow.
I am home now with God, I need you to know.

You will be remembered as Good Man, whose faith was strong , kindness in your heart and an endless love for your Family. God Bless You and keep You Forever. You will be missed LOVE MARLENE & PAUL
