Henry Anton Kazimier, 88, Hot Springs, Ark.

On April 30, 2013, Henry Anton Kazimier, 88, former Brown County resident, went to be with the Lord. He was born in Chicago, Ill. on Oct. 29, 1924 to Julian and Irene Kazimier. Henry was predeceased by his parents; and granddaughter, Melissa Bourgoyne. 

Henry is survived by his wife, Jean Milligan Kazimier of Hot Springs; sons, Chris (Becky), and Michael Kazimier (Cathy); daughter Nana Varner (Marshall); four grandchildren, Chris Kazimier, Carey Wooton, Benjamin Kazimier and Rachael Chambers; and eight great-grandchildren. 

Henry was a World War II veteran, stationed at Greenham Commons Air Base, Newberry England, as a paratroop transport plane navigator. His love of aeronautics continued after the war, as a member of the Quiet Birdmen flying club and serving eight years as the first aeronautics director for the state of Indiana.  Henry was multi-talented and as a pioneer in the plastics industry, with Amos Thompson developed and produced a variety of innovative plastic products used throughout the world. Henry moved to Hot Springs, Ark. in 1983 to work with airport lighting at Chem Fab. While there, he married Jean Milligan on Feb. 16, 1985. Henry enjoyed singing with the Fun City Barbershop Chorus for many years after his retirement. He was elected “Barber-Shopper of the Year” in 1988. Henry was also on the board of the Hot Springs Jazz Society, a member of the Lions Club, and a member of the Masonic Lodge. 

Visitation will be take place at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 5 at Davis-Smith Funeral Home in Hot Springs, Ark. (www.davis-smith.com) with a memorial service at 3 p.m.  In lieu of flowers, a donation in Henry’s name to the Fun City Barbershop Chorus would be appreciated.
