Earl W. “Buddy” Duggins officiating. The family will receive friends at the funeral home on Sunday from 4 until 6 in the evening. Mr. Maass completed his earthly journey on Thursday, May 4, 2017 in Kilgore.
Henry was born on February 1, 1937, in Overton to Henry and Myrtle Maass. He graduated from Kilgore High School in 1955 and then attended Kilgore College. He received his Bachelor’s and Master’s of Music degrees from North Texas State University. Henry served his country proudly in U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War. He taught high school English for 15 years in Ft. Worth and then moved back to Kilgore and went to work for Eastman Kodak in Longview and worked there for the next 17 years until his retirement. Henry enjoyed classical music, computers and movies. Knowledge was a passion for him and he fulfilled this by reading, especially the Holy Bible. His family was the source of his strength and spending time with them was when he was happiest. He will be greatly missed by all of those whose lives he has touched.
