Henry B. Shirley, 54, left us suddenly on May 6, 2010.  Henry was born September 5, 1955 in Gainesville, Florida to Dr. Ray and Helen Shirley.  Henry served in the United States Air Force.  He worked for Delta Air Lines for 28 years.  He was a loving husband, father, brother and friend.  He was an avid fan of the Florida Gators and Washington Redskins.  He loved to fly, taking trips with his son to Alaska and camping out in National Parks throughout the country.  He enjoyed spending time at St. Augustine with his family each summer.  He will be missed more than can be expressed.  He was preceded in death by his brother Bill Shirley.  He is survived by his loving wife of 25 years, Anne Trapp Shirley, daughter, Jennifer and son Robert; sisters; Susan Thomason, Bonnie Chambers and brother John Shirley. A memorial service will be held Saturday, May 15, 2010 at 11:00 at 1201 Tom Gurney Dr., Winter Park, FL 32789.  Burial will be in Gainesville, FL at a later date.

    Dear Anne, Jennifer and Robert,

    Our hearts are aching for you. Please know that we are praying for you and are just down the street if you need help with anything. We will miss our Gator buddy. Bob will always remember the time that Hank walked down to our house at 3 in the morning when highschool partiers were fighting on our front lawn. He felt like Hank always had his back and was there if he needed him.

    Please call us if we can help in any way.

    Kathy and Bob

    Hank was the type of person that made you feel you knew him for years the first time you met him. I have never heard an unkind word spoken about him and he will be missed.

    A smile he put on my young boys faces when ever they chased teased him at Old Town on Saturday night. A smile he put on the faces of the people he worked with when we teased him or him us. A smile he put on my face as we shared an on going joke during the football season. We will always have a smile when we remember Hank.

    I will miss Hank. I first met Hank in the Air Force in 1978 at Homestead AFB. He has been a great friend and coworker. It will not be the same without Hank in Orlando at Delta.
