I was sad to here of Mark’s passing, he was a wonderful man. Prayers for his family.
Mark was the big brother of my best friend in college! Both of them hold a large portion of my love deep in my heart. I will never forget them and look forward to the assurance of being together one day!!!!!!
Some people one encounters in life are unique in that nothing negative can be said about them. Mark was one of those people. What a great example of a Christian. Our family will be praying for you all through this time.
Condolences to the family. I didnt have the pleasure of knowing Mark during the height of all his accomplishments but the short time i did know him, he was a joy to be around. May God Bless The Family
I met Mark in 1970 when he was with the Project Italy group and I was stationed in Italy with the Air Force. Mark was a great singer and a wonderful Christian man. I was able to get to know him even better when I attended Lipscomb and we worked together at Kings Lane Church of Christ in north Nashville. I will always feel close to the Henrys because of our Project Italy connection. I can still enjoy listening to Mark’s voice because David Lavender had the group’s music recorded professionally in Italy and records were made from those recordings. Will look forward to singing with Mark in heaven.
I am so sorry to hear about Mr. Henry’s passing. He was my choral director at Nashville Christian School in the late 70’s and I thought a lot of him. May God bless your family and send you peace.
So sorry to hear of your loss. I haven’t worked with Matt for very long in Nashville, but he is such a great guy that it feels like much longer. No matter how old you are, it’s never easy to lose a parent. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and Matt.
Only fond memories of Mark and his family. He was a kind and soft-spoken man with a compassionate love for his Lord and the church. Prayers for Susan and his children.
Those who knew Mark and taught his children at Madison Academy are saddened by the passing of Mark. A personal memory (I was high school principal at the time) is when Mark helped me load his 18 wheeler with classroom furniture to move from the old campus to the new one, and it snowed that day! We made it anyway, but I always remember him going the second mile that day.
Mr. Henry was my first band director starting me on the clarinet in 6th grade at Goodpasture Christian School in Madison Tennessee. I’m a band director and music teacher and I play in big band jazz groups in the Nashville Tennessee area. The only job I’ve ever had is teaching music and band. I’ve called a few places, and now I teach at Ezell-Harding Christian School in Antioch Tennessee. Thank you Mr. Henry for starting me out on something that I grew to love and have as my career. Love and prayers to the entire family.
Mr.Henry was my 1st band director at Goodpasture Christian school in Madison, Tn. I am saddened at his passing but rejoicing that we will all see him again some day. Prayers for his family.
Lisa, we are so sorry and so sad to hear of Marks passing. He was such a good guy and a good example to all who knew him. You all are in our thoughts and prayers. Love you all, Bob, Barbara and family
I met Mark and his brother, Phil, on Project Italy in the early 70’s. I remember him as a conscientious young man with so much musical talent. I am so sorry to hear of his death. I’m praying for Susan and for all of the Henry family.
We are so sorry to hear of Mark’s passing but rejoicing in his victory in Jesus! We have fond rememberances of him and his time at Wells Hill and the occasional run-ins at auctions over the years.
Mr. Larry, Mrs. Lisa, Beth, Rachel, Joshua and the rest of the Henry family,
