During his journey through this life he found hope and faith in the Muslim teachings and at times would drive to New Haven with his brother Willie to fellowship with the brethren. Henry was a loving and disciplined father to his children and to those he helped give guidance to. He enjoyed fishing, apprenticeship, cooking and was not afraid of a hard day of work. He was a musician and member of the family band named “The Hitchhikers” of which he played the lead guitar and even sang. He both loved and was loved by his family and was respected in the community. Henry played a significant role in the Mr. Fish restaurant legacy and many people in Springfield affectionately called him “Mr. Fish”.Henry found love during his time on earth and was previously married to Betty J. Washington and Diedrah Brown. Henry was preceded in death by his loving parents Willie and Irabelle, and his siblings James Housey, Willie “Junior” Housey and Nathan Housey. He leaves to cherish his loving memory his 3 sons; Lamont Henry Johnson (Shamieka), Henry (Jackie) Washington, Jr. and Stephen Washington, 3 daughters; Yvette (Ronnie) Tate, Linda Spencer his niece whom he raised as his daughter and Takara Washington; 6 brothers; Josephus (Jeannette) Housey, Sr., John H. (Patricia) Housey, Sr., Franklin (Ruth) Housey, Sr., Wesley (Patricia) White, Sr., Charles White and Arthur (Evon) White; a sister; Mary White; 12 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren and a host of family and friends.

To the family of uncle Henry Lee...thats who he was to me. I remember you having the best house in the neighborhood. I thought you were rich. You had a back yard that turned into magic. All the room to run around, grape vines, pear trees, and last but not least "Mr. Fish" the best fish in town. You filled a lot of bellies and memories. Rock the Heavens. God calls his Angels...RIP from the Wheelers
