Obituary for Henry Likes

Henry Likes
Likes, Henry Theodore “Ted” passed away peacefully, at the age of 88, surrounded by his family on Friday, November 3, 2017.
After graduating from Washington University in St. Louis, Henry was drafted into the U. S. Army and stationed in Southeast Asia during the Korean War. Henry traded his weapon for a bat and was handpicked to play for the U.S. Army baseball team to raise troop morale. Upon returning stateside, Henry was signed to a Major League Baseball contract with the Giants organization. He played first base and earned the nickname “Big Train” for his power hitting and lack of speed.
Following his professional baseball career, Henry returned to St. Louis to begin a lengthy career in the hardware industry which spanned more than five decades. He was honored to serve as the first and only two-term President of the American Hardware Manufacturers Association.
Henry is a survived by the love of his life, Marguerite, his four children, Janet Kendra (Pam), Ted (Nicole), Terry (Tammy), Andy (Brandy) and his “grands,” Hank, Lauren, Dani and Anna Grace. He is also survived by his brother Peter (Jean) and numerous nieces and nephews.
Henry was a member of the Theta Xi fraternity at Washington University, the Republican National Committee, Ladue Chapel Presbyterian Church and an avid golfer.
A Celebration of Life will be held Friday, November 10, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at Ladue Chapel Presbyterian Church, 9450 Clayton Road, 63124, followed by a reception and light lunch in The Gathering Place. In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated to the St. Louis Zoo, Ladue Chapel, or the charity of your choice in Henry’s name.
