George Henny

May 10, 1941 ~ September 11, 2023 (age 82) 82 Years Old


George R. Henny, 82, of Nobleboro, passed away peacefully with his two sons by his side, at the Sussman House in Rockport on the morning of September 11.  

George was born on May 10, 1941, in Bronx, NY, to Katherine (Toth) and Emery Henny.  At the age of four George, along with his parents and older brother Edward, moved to Nobleboro, Maine.  Growing up, George worked at his family owned Arrow Restaurant and bed and breakfast, as well as the chicken farm.  

After graduating from Lincoln Academy in 1960, he worked numerous odd jobs until enlisting in the U.S. Air Force in 1964.  Upon his honorable discharge, George returned to Nobleboro where he met Shirley Trask, whom he wed, and had two sons.  

George was a jack of all trades, but found his career at BIW, retiring after 31 years of service in 2007.  After retiring, he spent many hours in his shop repairing and fabricating.  George also enjoyed snowmobiling, hunting, ice fishing and being up to camp.  

George was predeceased by his parents, Katherine and Emery Henny; and his older brother, Edward Henny of Florida. 

He is survived by his sons, Briceson and wife Robyn, and Brandon and wife Lisa; grandchildren, Travis Cost, Heather Cost, Hayley Phillips, Gracelynn Henny and Judson Henny; great-grandchildren, McKenna Ross and Lincoln Ross; and nephews, Peter, Paul, and James Henny.
