Henry Robert Kin March 20, 1945 - January 27, 2021

Henry Robert Kin

Mr. Henry Kin, age 75, passed away on January 27, 2021, after he fell and bonked his head!

Henry was born to Stephen and Irene Kin. He married Judy Griggs on January 29, 1966, and they would have celebrated their 55th anniversary together, this year.

Henry is survived by his loving wife of 55 years, Judy Kin. He was an amazing father of three children; Chris (Tracy) Kin, Michelle Kin Heywood and Matthew (Holly) Kin. And he was a legendary Poppy to his grandchildren; Aly Kin, Connor Kin, Megan Heywood, Madison Heywood, Nolan Kin, Harper Heywood and Maxwell Kin. He was a steadfast brother to Edward (Janice) Kin, Stephen Michael (Ann) Kin and John (Valerie) Kin, and was loved by so many extended relatives and incredible friends.

Henry was “a hell of a guy”! Cheers to his friends, who were always there! He was an engineer, entrepreneur, inventor, pilot, photographer, golfer (even in the snow), coach, and loyal friend. He was a mentor to his children, and was “Poppy, The Man, The Myth, The Legend” to his grandkids, and an amazing partner, husband, and friend to Judy. Together, they traveled in his single engine, piper planes. His wit, humor and moonwalk will be greatly missed. We will do our best to keep his one-liner’s alive.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Barbara.

    Dear Judy & Kin Family Only recently did I hear of this very sad news of my old Indpls schoolmate and close buddy. We were tight friends thru grade and High School and on. Growing up, We were at each others houses so many times , swam/played & worked at the Rivi Club, I could go on and on. Shared so many “fun & crazy” times together!! Learned to drive a car at same time, went to all the cool parties & events. Henry was a smart man and I’m sure a loving husband, brother, uncle and grandfather. To his brother, Eddie, and his wife Judy(who may remember my name) I know how close u two were and his loss will be a tough one. I’m sorry that I’m not living close to Cincinnati any longer as I would have loved to attend this Service. God Bless everyone. He will truly be missed!

    Henry’s death was a shock to me. My memories of him in high school and grade school at St. Joan of Arc are pleasant . His successes in swimming and school stick out in my memories. Henry always was interested in my music successes and was supportive of my efforts. My life was enhanced by Henry having been a part of it. RIP

    Dear Judy and family. First, I love the photo you chose! Second I LOVED the story you told of his life. The bonk on the head made me laugh and I know that Henry would have loved that you made us laugh in the midst of our sorrow. Weeze and I have such great memories of you guys which are too numerous for a verbose person like me to list. I’d run out of room. That said-the most important memory we have is you guys helping us discuss our pre Cana worksheets. It worked! 32 years later he hasn’t killed me yet 🥰. I’m sorry we couldn’t make it to the celebration of life. We are around our kids a lot and they both take care of Covid patients so we didn’t feel comfortable possibly exposing anyone. Henry? You were a hell of a guy. You were funny and quirky and loyal and kind. This world has lost a great one but Heaven has gained an amazing angel. Tell my parents I love and miss them! I know my dad will be happy to see you. May your planes and shuttles forever fly and never crash! All our love to you all. ❤️🙏

    Whenever I think of Uncle Henry I can instantly hear his laugh. We will miss him and when we think of him it will always bring a smile to our faces. I wish we could be there with all of you to celebrate his life.

    Dear Judy and family,
    It’s always a blessing when you have good neighbors. Henry was one of those people, with a smile on his face and very welcoming. It was he who inspired us to start the new build for the art studio to come. Eric and I will miss our chats at the fence. Feel free to contact us for anything you need and also for those chats, whether by the fence on on the deck.
    Praying for you and your family.

    Janice & I share your sorrow. It’s been a difficult few years for you looking after Henry and we cannot imagine how difficult it was for you. You could not have picked a better picture here. It congers up all the good memories we all had together. We all will miss him. As soon as you feel a need to get away come on down and spend some time with us enjoying the sunshine by day and some Hard Rock at night.
    With all our love
    Ed & Janice

    Henry and I were raised more twins being only 18 months apart.. We even took piano lessons together and played a duet together . We swam on the swim together and pledged Sigma Chi together.. We married our wonderful wife’s six week apart. He was genuinely a good guy and will be missed not only by me but everyone he came in contact with. I am proud to say I am his brother.

    I am so sorry to hear of this news. What a shock it must be. I have always been grateful to Henry for taking my sister, Amy, under his wing years ago. I have fun memories with all of you from my childhood, including watching the Bengals in the Super Bowl at your house! I can only imagine what an awesome Poppy he must have been to all of the Kin grandchildren. My heart goes out to you all at this time.
