Newcomen, Henry Christopher

July 1, 1940 - February 17, 2019

Obituary

Henry was born on July 1st, 1940 in Kaslo, B.C. to Henry Anderson Newcomen and Margaret Irene Olson.  He passed away peacefully on February 17th, 2019 in Invermere B.C. surrounded by his children. He was pre-deceased by Susan Engelbracht, his partner of 25 years. He is survived by his sons Warren (Nan) and Marty (Elena), his daughters Cali (Blaine) and Contessa, his sister Louise, and his brother Gerry.

Henry was an electrician by trade, taking over his father’s business Hank’s Electric in his early days, and later founding Newco Electrical Contracting. Henry was an accomplished athlete, competing at a national level in pole vault in his younger days. He was an avid curler, and participated in many bonspiels, one of his favorites being the Butterfly Bonspiel in Creston. He liked to golf, fish, ski and play the piano.  He loved the outdoors, taking his children on many trips into the mountains around Invermere. In his later years he enjoyed spending time with his grandsons, Brandon, Taylor, Leigham, Caden, Westin and Finn.

A Celebration of Life will be held for Henry in Invermere on March 30th from 1:30 PM to 5 PM at the Copper Point Resort.  Henry’s friends are invited for a drink and some snacks, to share some stories of their adventures, and reminisce about the good times they had with him.

My sincerest condolences to you all in the loss of your dad. I truly enjoyed meeting your father and working with him. I knew a fair bit but wish I had known even more of all this history about him during our time together. He always worked hard with me and kept a positive outlook. Take care of each other in this difficult time. I am thinking of you.
