Worked construction for 35 years as a Brick Layer.

 

Music, music, music was Henry’s Life. He played among many bands and was leader of his own. 

Band. “The Nava Brothers.” Henry’s passion to his end was music, throughout the years he passed along his vibrant, yet smooth sounds playing his saxophone, clarinet, flute, or any instrument to create a beat alongside incredible musicians.
