Obituary for Henry Martin Weissenborn, Sr.

Henry Martin Weissenborn, Sr., 78, of Madison Mississippi, passed away after a long illness, at his home he shared with the love of his life of 30 years, Ann Graves Weissenborn, on February 13, 2021, surrounded by his family.
Henry was born to parents Frederick William Weissenborn and Ruth Valborg Swanson Weissenborn on February 19, 1942, in Bridgeport Connecticut, and he and his family relocated to Oak Cliff, Texas in 1948 when Henry was 7 years old.
Growing up he was passionate about teams and playing baseball and football. As a tall, lanky, hard-throwing left handed pitcher, he was overpowering on the mound and he became an area all-star pitcher on his Sunset high school baseball team. He said that sports taught him the value of team-work, grit, determination and helped him develop a never give up work ethic and to seek excellence in everything he did and everything he touched. And make no mistake: he was an avid Dallas Cowboy and Texas Ranger fan.
In his post High School years, his ability to recall an image or facts from memory with high precision served him well as he transitioned from Sunset High School to the University of Texas at Austin where he studied aeronautical engineering and later continuing graduate and post-graduate education in business at North Texas State University and at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.
As he was beginning his professional career at Texas Instruments, he stepped into business operations management – ultimately becoming a nationally recognized expert in procurement technology. Over the course of 30 years at TI, he moved around to many roles and facilities from Dallas to Sherman, TX. Upon retiring from Texas Instruments, he continued working with opportunities at IBM, Profitt McRaes, and Trustmark Bank.
In the early 90’s, Henry met and wed Ann Graves Weissenborn and the two of them made their way to Madison Mississippi in 1997 when he accepted an IT position with Profitt McRaes (Saks Incorporated).
He and Ann loved and enjoyed traveling and the close friendships they made with the neighbors in the in the Whisper Lake Golf course community where they enjoyed many years playing golf and the fellowship within the Madison community. They decided to make this their retirement home.
If you asked a hundred people who Henry Weissenborn was, they’d likely all give you a different answer. Some would say a superhero, maybe the tallest man they ever knew, an athlete, a coach, a businessman, and the list goes on.
Our family knew him as a proud and devoted husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and Uncle who took great pride in a life-time of learning and teaching others. He worked tirelessly within our immediate and extended families, at Parkway Hills United Methodist Church where he worshiped and served, as well as in business where he helped many expand what they thought possible. All the smiles, belly laughs, adventures, conversations, surprise visits, phone calls and mostly through his leadership and mentorship, he encouraged big dreams and he worked tirelessly to help them become fulfilled by lending his guidance, strength and confidence, especially when theirs was running low or misplaced. As a gifted problem-solver, he would help you find a way. He always told you it was simple: find the who, the what, and the how.
He was surely a great storyteller and could bring light to almost any situation with well-timed wit and an uncanny ability to bring others closer. For as long as he had been known, he was constantly spinning yarns. It didn’t matter if he was entertaining his seatmate on a crowded plane ride, or an audience of hundreds, Henry had a story, a meaningful memory, and something to say.
He was preceded in death by his parents and granddaughter Stephanie Weissenborn.
He is survived by his adored wife, Ann Weissenborn, 4 children: daughter Elizabeth Henry (Dwayne), son Henry Weissenborn, Jr. (Kim), son Scott Weissenborn (Teri) and daughter Karen Jones (Scott), 13 grandchildren, 7 great grandchildren.
