On October 23rd, 2020, Douglas E. Henry (66 of Westampton) passed on after a courageous 12-year battle with cancer. A New Jersey native all his life, he was employed with Lockheed Martin in Moorestown as an IT Systems Specialist for more than 36 years. A lover of classic rock and a devoted friend to stray cats, he truly appreciated nature, and counted Bowman’s Hill and Cape May among his favorite places to visit. Doug’s greatest joy was sharing a good meal with family and friends, whether it was a home-cooked holiday feast or lunch at his favorite restaurant, O’Connor’s Bar & Grill in Eastampton. A sharp political observer, in his last days Doug most fervently wished to see Joe Biden elected as our next President.

He was preceded in death by his beloved pets Daniel, Ponce, Gray and Mother Cat, and by his parents, Ellwood and Margaret Henry.
