Henry graduated from St. Joseph’s High School in 1946, Buffalo, NY and then proudly served his country as a U.S. Marine. Upon returning home, he earned both a Bachelor’s Degree from Cornell University and a Master’s degree in Agriculture from the University of Massachusetts.  He became a prominent local business man who worked in the family business, Charlap’s Dairy Farm, Inc., for many years until becoming the owner in the early 1960’s.
