Henri Albert Joseph Julie, 74, of Williamsburg, passed away after a short and courageous battle with malignant melanoma on July 31, 2012. Born on May 8, 1938, on Mother's Day, to his parents, Adrien and Lillian Cadieux Julie, Henri made his arrival in the taxi cab just as it approached the front of the Woonsocket Hospital, Woonsocket, RI. He grew up alongside one sister, Lucille Julie, also of Woonsocket.
Henri spent the formative years of his life in Woonsocket, joining the U.S. Navy at age 17. He was stationed aboard the USS Meredith, DD890, Destroyer, Norfolk, VA, from 1955-1957, followed by the USS Grand Canyon, AD28, Destroyer Tender, in Fall River, MA, from 1957-1959.
He met Christina Mabel Baker in October 1957 and they were married on August 20, 1960. Henri served in the U.S. Air Force from 1960-1964, being stationed in Denver, CO, Oscoda, MI, and Goose Bay, Labrador.
After leaving the Air Force, the Julie family settled in Uniondale, Long Island, NY, later relocating to Sayville, Long Island, NY. Henri embarked on a 30-year career with Grumman Aerospace from 1965-1994.
Upon retirement, Henri and Christina moved to Williamsburg, VA, where Henri was employed by Colonial Williamsburg Tazwell Club for four years to maintain and repair rental bikes. He became known simply as "The Bike Man."
Always active civically, Henri was the Worshipful Master of Connectquot F. & A. M. Masonic Lodge #838 in Sayville, Long Island, NY and served as Secretary for 9 years. He was also a member of the Williamsburg Masonic Lodge #6, A.F. & A.M.
Henri is survived by his loving wife, his sister, his godchildren, and many loving friends and neighbors. Thank you to all who helped Henri through his illness. He was preceded in death by his parents.
The family will receive friends on Friday, August 3 from 2-4 and 6-8 PM at Nelsen Funeral Home, 3785 Strawberry Plains Rd, Williamsburg. A service will be held at 6:30 PM in the funeral home chapel.
