Henning had a deep respect for nature and animals. He enjoyed walking through the land and coulees.
Over the years Henning built wagons, farm equipment, and restored a fleet of Farmall tractors. Riding and racing motorbikes was a passion he shared with his sons and grandchildren. Grandpa always made time for his family and friends. He had a way of making you feel special. Henning had a love of music, and at his grandchildren's birthdays he would welcome them at the door playing his accordion. He treasured spending time with his grandchildren.
