Henry Schock

Henry Schock, 77, of Eureka, passed away on May 31, 2009 at his home in Cheshire, Mass.

Henry Schock hit a game-tying home run and scored on Tim Budd’s sacrifice fly to help Cheshire defeat Waterbury 5-4 and advance to today’s American Legion Southern Division final against Branford.

Schock began writing songs in the late 70s for major labels and produced three albums under their label in the 80s. Since then, she has expanded into teaching, soundtrack work, as well as resuming her recording career.

Early Life and Education

Henry was born in Eigenfeld, Bessarabia South Russia and moved with his family to America at 10 years old. Henry was a hardworking individual who always made time for friends and neighbors; his passions included reading Wall Street Journal and Barrons Magazines as well as watching PBC television programs.

He had a deep-seated passion for electronics, so he started his professional journey at a television repair shop. Soon enough, his boss recognized his skills and offered him a position within their engineering department.

Henry and Judith founded Joyful Sound Ministries during his later years to serve the Lord worldwide as Prayer Walkers to the Nations, experiencing numerous miracles, salvations, healings and breakthroughs along their path. Additionally, they learned to trust Him completely while living on faith tithing all of their income without telling anyone for six months!

Professional Career

Henry Schock was an outgoing and hardworking individual with strong friendships among family, neighbors, and his community. His favorite pastimes included daily SUDOKO games, the stock market, Barrons Magazine and The Wall Street Journal reading and spending time with family – especially his grandchildren.

In the late ’60s, he began working as both a tool and die maker and then later as model shop manager at Beckman Instruments in Palo Alto, CA. He retired after 26 years with this company in 1992.

He was the beloved father of Dana and Heather Schock and grandfather to Megan, as well as being survived by his beloved wife Lynn, sister-in-law Donna Rockel, special nieces and nephews and their families – he will be greatly missed by all those who knew him.

Achievement and Honors

Henry was not only successful in business, but was also an active member of Zion American Lutheran Church in Eureka where he served on its Board and Choir; additionally he joined Women of ELCA and Quilting group for community service activities.

He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather who will be greatly missed by his wife of 62 years, Darlene; sons Tim and Lucas Schock as well as daughters Hope (Roy) George and Tina Schock Mathias as well as four grandchildren.

The family would like to extend our appreciation and gratitude for the exceptional caretakers at Amazing Care Plus who provided kindness and care during this trying time. They would particularly like to acknowledge Dr. Joshi for being there during this difficult time – we will all miss him, for he truly was an exceptional individual.

Personal Life

He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother who is survived by two daughters and grandchildren as well as many close family friends. Unfortunately he was predeceased by both his parents, his older brother and sister.

He began his career at a TV repair shop, but was encouraged to apply to work at an electronic engineering company instead. Seizing this opportunity, he quickly advanced his abilities.

Henry first coined the term “outing” to refer to journalistic coverage of gay people and relationships ten years ago; today, after much more acceptance among journalists, even Henry himself has been outed! Many journalists may still find the practice awkward.

Net Worth

While Congressman Schock had many accolades to his name, his true success lay within the DC lobbying class where he enjoyed fat paychecks and lavish perks – indeed this Intercept article describes him as being “one of the highest-earning DC insiders after leaving politics”.

Ballotpedia conducted research to help voters compare the net worths of incumbent and potential successor Congressmembers, starting from when they took office until when their personal finance disclosure forms were filed – this data came from public records and the 2010 Census. For each Congressmember who served for eight years or longer and filed their personal finance disclosure forms each year until filing them with their required personal financial disclosure forms (in particular for home equity issues). Below is an average yearly increase in their net worth (excluding home equity ).
