Henry H. Leigh, 68, died at Waldo County General Hospital, with his beloved wife, Meggy, by his side Friday, Jan. 19, 2018, after an unexpected and shocking diagnosis of multiple myeloma one week earlier. He was able to have his family by his side since he had been hospitalized, and it was a great comfort to him.

Henry was born in Cleveland Feb. 24, 1949. He grew up in Ohio, and also lived in New York. He received his bachelor's degree from Hobart College and his master's of business administration from Ohio University, where he went on to teach business math. He moved his family to Camden in 1983, and opened accounting offices there and in Rockland. He was an amazing master woodworker, photographer, weaver, engraver and artist. His love for his craft led him to work at Cold Mountain Builders in Belfast. He was a board member and treasurer of the Maine chapter of the American Chestnut Foundation and a member of several animal welfare organizations.

Henry was predeceased by his parents, Henry M. Leigh and Mildred L. Leigh, of Camden and Belfast, his son Avary Leigh of Camden and his ex-wife, Candace, of Ohio.

He is survived by his wife, Meggy Morrison-Leigh; his son, Hartley Leigh, and his son, Zyphen, of Ohio; his daughter, Jennifer Leigh, her husband, Nathan Kridler, and their children, Avary and Violet, of Ohio; sister Elizabeth and her husband, Charles Buell, of Appleton; his brother-in-law, George Morrison, of Connecticut; his childhood friend, Welles Thurber, of Northport; and his so-beloved fur children, Mattie, Morgan, Himley, Pookah and Pipppy.

Henry will be buried at Seaview Cemetery in Rockport in the spring and an announcement will be made prior to that so that friends may attend the memorial service there. See a complete biographical obituary which explains this amazing, sweet, gentle man and suggested donations at ripostafh.com.
