Andrew Karl Henry, age 58, of Coatesville, beloved son of Jack and Laura (Sneath) Henry, passed away on September 12, 2019, with his mom and dad at his side.
For 25 years, Andrew was the Medical Librarian at the V.A. Medical Center in Coatesville. Prior to that, he worked at NARIC, Library of Congress, NIH, and the Public Library System of Prince George’s County, Maryland.

Not only was he a medical researcher, but he was a gifted speaker, avid reader, and occasional poet. He loved to explore, travel, especially on cruises, and collected all types of books. Combining his love for the arts and community, Andrew was a part of the Hillview Players, who would often put on theatrical performances for the neighborhood.
In addition to his parents, Andrew is survived by his brother, John R. Henry (Pamela); beloved nephew, George Henry; and special friend, Judi Ebelhar.
