On Monday, March 4, 2024, Arthur C. Henrie, loving husband and father, passed away peacefully at the age of 94 in Newtown, Pennsylvania.  Art is survived by his wife of 67 years Sarah (Sallie) Hufty Neuweiler and was preceded in death by his two children, Melissa Masters Henrie Cowan (1961-2023) (John D. Cowan); and William Judson Henrie (1963-2020) (Giti Henrie).  Additionally, Art is survived by many loving nieces, nephews, grandnieces/grand nephews.

Arthur "Art" Henrie, born in Bloomsburg PA and attended George School, a private Quaker boarding school in Newtown PA, where he excelled in track and field. Art graduated in Business from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He lettered in track and held records within the conference for having the “Fastest legs in the BIG10” while in attendance. 

Art served in the United States Air Force as an Airman, First Class, with the 127th Pilot Training Wing, during the Korean War. While stationed in Arizona his division of the USAF became the official Air Training Command responsible for training fighter jet pilots.

On February 16, 1957, Art married Sallie and later adopted their two children, Melissa and Jud while in Jackson, Michigan.  Art and Sallie were very active and committed in their community and loved their life in Jackson.  They developed lifelong friendships with many in the community and beyond.   All that knew Art understood his immense strength of character, humility, intelligence, and commitment to and sense of family.  Art had an innate ability to make all feel welcome, engaged, and enjoy the task at hand. Art had the keen ability to Mind the Light in all.  

In 1965, Art purchased and successfully developed Carpenter Industrial Supply Company, also known as CISCO, located in Jackson, Michigan. CISCO operates in the Industrial/Fastener (nuts, bolts, screws) industry within the Wholesale Trade- Durable Goods sector. 

 Art was an avid golfer and played courses around the world. He served on many charitable boards and organizations throughout his life and was especially interested in supporting the Jackson Symphony Orchestra and Family Service and Children’s Aid of Jackson, Michigan.  Art offered this kind generosity throughout his long life and extended it to family, friends and those in need. 

Special thanks to the staff of Pennswood Village for their years of support and care to Art.  A memorial service will be held later this spring in Pennsylvania.  Please consider directing your donation to the George School. https://www.georgeschool.org/support-george-school/ways-to-give/
