Ralph Norman Henton

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Ralph Norman Henton of Diamondhead announces his passing on April 18, 2024, at the age of 90.

Ralph was born on March 22, 1934, in Coldwater, MI where he spent most of his childhood.

Upon graduating high school, he joined the United States Air Force during the Korean War and was stationed at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, MS. This is when he met the love of his life, his wife Erin, whom he married when he returned from Korea when the war ended. They were a month shy of their 70th wedding anniversary when he left this life. In the meantime, they had four children whom they raised in around the New Orleans area and later on, the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Ralph worked for many years at E.I. DuPont in Pass Christian, MS until his retirement.

He was preceded in death by his daughter, Susan Eileen; parents, Ralph Edwin Henton and Pauline Farr; brother, Terry Henton; and sister, Susan Dee Henton.

He is survived by his wife, Erin; sons, Charles Henton, Sean Henton (Cindy), and Brian Henton (Penny); grandchildren, Brian Henton, Jr. and Kaycee Henton.

Riemann Family Funeral Home, 9113 Kiln Delisle Rd, Pass Christian, MS is serving the family.
