Henry L. Story Jr.

CLEVELAND — Henry Lee Story Jr., age 73, of Ashtabula, Ohio, died Saturday, April 5, 2014, at the Cleveland Clinic.

He was born Feb. 6, 1941, in Little Rock, Ark., the son of Henry Lee and Iola (Stevens) Story and had been an Ashtabula County resident since 1985.

Prior to his retirement, he had worked for White Motor Company, World Publishing Company, and National ACME Machine in Cleveland.

He always had a dream of being a Marine, but instead turned his energies and focus to the martial arts which he practiced for over 50 years. A 7th Degree Black Belt, he loved the opportunity martial arts gave him  to become one with and connect with mind, body, and spirit and he took what he had learned to others by becoming a teacher at the Wellness and Total Learning Center. His teachings always focused on how to live in harmony with the environment around you. Henry loved to read and was proud to be a lifelong learner.

His survivors include three children, James Story of Cleveland, Eric Story of Joppa, Md., and Joyce Lenix of Cleveland; grandchildren, Alex, Iyania, Julissa, Jameka, Freddy and Michelle; several great-grandchildren; two brothers, Harry L. “Pete” Story Sr. of Cleveland and Leroy Story of Las Vegas, Nev.; two sisters, Dorothy Dyer of Milwaukee, Wis., and Gloria Jean Story Broyles of Ashtabula; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his sister, Mary J. Story; his brothers, Edward L. Story and Harvey Story; and his parents.

A Private Family Service will be held on Saturday, April 12th, at the ZABACK-WILLIAMS-DUCRO FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATION SERVICE, 500 W. Prospect Road, Ashtabula. The Rev. Steve Sargent, of Hiawatha COGIC, will officiate.

Calling Hours for family and friends will follow at the Funeral Home from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 12th.

At his request, memorial contributions may be made to the charity of one’s choice and then please support that charity.
