Robert L. Henry

Robert L. Henry

Vice President

Robert L. Henry heeded the clarion call to venture into the funeral service business in 2006 when his wife, Frances Bell Henry, found the demands of maintaining the legacy-rich family-owned and operated business somewhat overwhelming.  Bob retired from architecture, and at the age of 74 returned to school to earn a degree in Mortuary Science, ultimately becoming a Licensed Funeral Director. As Vice President and valued member of the Executive Board, his diversity of life experiences and deep, caring attitude render him a tremendous asset to the business and families served by Frank R. Bell Funeral Home. (NYSLFD)
