Obituary - Graham Henry

Graham Henry was born 20th February 1947 in Sydney. After ten years, the family moved to Brisbane where Graham went to St. Columbians secondary school followed by University of Queensland where he obtained his degree as a Batchelor of Commerce.

Graham started his career with Anderson Consulting in Melbourne. He married Grace in 1970 and they spent the next year in Chicago. As a partner and board member Graham worked in various locations; Sydney, Brisbane, Chicago and Hong Kong, finally becoming managing partner for Asia/Pacific.

Graham retired in 2000 and became interested in bridge. He joined the Gold Coast Bridge Club in 2000 and joined the Board as Treasurer, a position he held for many years. His knowledge and professionalism enabled the club to progress from being a club to a corporate entity as Graham changed the way we did business. Graham was a quiet unassuming and dedicated member of the club and his meritorious service was rewarded by receiving an honorary life membership in 2011. He retired as Treasurer in 2014 and remained a member of the Board.

Graham and his wife Grace both loved their bridge and the club. Being accredited directors they volunteered their services for many years conducting bridge at the club for two sessions a week.

The members of the Gold Coast Bridge Club will always cherish fond memories of Graham who was a mainstay of the club and known and respected by all.

Vale Graham.
