Obituary of William R. Henton

William R. Henton CONNEAUT- William “Willie” Randolph Henton, 78 was called home on Sunday June 19, 2022. The son of Randolph and Ida Mae(Coleman) Henton Willie was born on May 23, 1944, in Louisville, MS. At the age of seventeen he moved to the Ashtabula County area and remained a lifelong resident. Willie’s working career began at Pinney Dock for several years before working at Millennium Metals. A dedicated employee of Millennium Metals now Ineos Pigments for more than forty years. Willie enjoyed working in the Maintenance Department and making friends along the way. Willie was a man of many talents and interests; in his younger years he was a pitcher as well a coach for several softball leagues. He raised a large vegetable garden full of tomatoes, peppers and so many other goodies which he shared with family and friends. A good cook, his food was enjoyed by many people over the years. Any day would be made better by going fishing with his sons and good friend, Tom while waiting for a bite in the quietness of the day. On occasion he would go hunting and enjoy the beauty of nature. Willie liked sitting at the table and playing cards with anyone who was brave enough to play with him; he liked to win! In later years Willie would watch television enjoying the old westerns, Gunsmoke, Bonanza and Cheyenne just to name a few. His new favorite was Chopped, he thought was a much better cook than those folks on television. Willie will be remembered by many as a hard worker, good cook, brother, husband, dad, grandpa, great grandpa and a man with a vibrant vocabulary!
