Mr. Henry Revis, Jr. Obituary

"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain:  for the former things are passed away.” 

Revelations 21:4

Henry Revis, Jr. Was born on January 30, 1957, in Fayetteville, North Carolina to the late Henry Revis, Sr. and Gracie Lee Revis. Although Henry was the youngest of three children, he showed up as a big brother to his sisters, Myrel McMillan-Ruff and Barbara Wright.  

Henry was a proud graduate of Evanston Township High School and continued his studies at DeVry University before starting a career at the Evanston Post Office. His passion for working with people later led him to becoming the Activity Director at Skokie Meadows Nursing & Rehabilitation Center.  

The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Henry. He had a passion for cooking and was always willing to prepare a dish for family gatherings, friends, BBQ’s, Warren St. block parties and church events. Beyond his passion for cooking, Henry loved watching sports, singing, and two-stepping the night away on the dance floor. Henry was blessed with a beautiful voice that graced the ears of everyone who was lucky enough to hear him sing. He enjoyed singing the National Anthem for the Evanston American Legion Post 42 during their annual holiday event.  More importantly, Henry believed in God. He was a dedicated member of Fisher Memorial A.M.E Zion Church where he was a member of the choir and encouraged others to join and attend Bible study.  

Henry loved his family and friends, and he will be missed by those that were blessed to know him. Henry leaves to cherish his memory; two sisters: Myrel McMillan-Ruff & Barbara (Terrance) Wright; Three nieces: Michelle McMillan, Brittney Wright, and Shayna Wright; One great-nephew: Aiden Perry; Two aunts: Marie McMillan, Sandra McMillan; One uncle: Larkin King (husband of Henry’s late Aunt, Georgia King); Cousins: Gideon McMillan, Viviana Rodriguez, William Rodriguez, Rebecca McMillan, Terry McMillan, Lisa Alford, and a host of relatives and friends. Please keep the family in your prayers.
