Mr. Bateman was a member of St. Thomas Episcopal Church, Board of Directors of Families Helping Families, Twin City Mayor’s Committee on Disabilities, and was an Episcopal Vespor.
Henry lived and worked with a servant’s heart. Throughout his adult life, individuals with disabilities benefited from his heart’s desire to serve. It was who he lived to be and was felt by all who knew him.
Henry was the treasurer of the Twin City Mayor’s Committee on Disabilities and contributed greatly to the success of that committee. He promoted scholarships to promote education and was proud of the accomplishments of this committee.
Families Helping Families is about serving individuals with disabilities, which was right up Henry’s alley. He faithfully served this organization starting from its inception and for many years after. Henry was our hero.
Henry’s life was full and productive. He enjoyed fellowship and once he had “rolled” into your life he was hard to forget.
Mr. Bateman was preceded in death by his father, Benjamin Forrest Bateman, and mother, Elizabeth Benton Bateman.
Survivors include his wife, Elizabeth Bateman; brother, Curt B. Bateman and wife Hazel T. Bateman; nieces, Madison M. Bateman and Hannah K. Bateman; as well as many other loving nieces and nephews who Henry cherished.
