Henry C. Cross
Enfield, N.H. — Henry C. Cross passed away in the comfort of his home on Tuesday, Aug. 12, 2014, after a short battle with cancer. He was born Dec. 14, 1934, in Milton, Mass., to Charles E. and Alma (Pond) Cross.
Henry and his high school sweetheart, Sally A. Robinson, married on April 27, 1957. They made their home and raised their daughters in Milton, before moving to Merrimack, N.H. in 1976. Summers and weekends were spent at their Crystal Lake home before moving full-time to the lake in 1997.
Henry began his sales career with R.H. Scales Co. before joining Dawson-Macdonald Company, Boston, Mass. in 1961. He became president of the company in 1988, retiring in 2000. He was credited with expanding the business from the monument industry into new industrial and commercial markets, bringing the business to its very profitable state that it is today. Henry was very well respected and had many friends in the industrial markets.
His pride and joy was the Enfield Veteran’s Park. He enjoyed traveling, hunting, fishing, golfing (and ribbing his golf partners), boating and spending the winters in Florida.
A very proud, loving, and giving man, he treasured spending time with his family and friends. Watching his grandchildren play sports was a favorite pastime.
Henry is survived by his wife, Sally, of 57 years; daughters, Susan (James) Clark, Enfield, N.H., Sandra (William) Quigley, Purcellville, Virg., Linda Cross (Tom Gardner), Lebanon, N.H.; grandchildren, Nathan Clark, Marissa (John) Ignacio, Cory Keane, Jessica Keane; great grandchildren John and Irissa Ignacio; as well as sisters, Ruth Olsen, Flora Campbell; sister-in-law, Helen Cross; and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents; brother, Charles; and sister, Dorothy Jones.
