Frank B. McHenry of Aliso Viejo, California died Wednesday October 13, 2010. He was 90. He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Lenore McHenry, 2 children, 2 stepchildren, 7 grandchildren and 4 step-grandchildren.
Mr. McHenry was a native of Glen Rock NJ. He attended Rutgers University, but left to work for a defense plant during World War II. After the war he began a long career as an accountant with Texaco.
Frank and Lenore moved from New Jersey to Southern California in 1970 where Frank continued to work for Texaco and Lenore established her bridge and travel business, Posh Talks Incorporated. Frank retired from Texaco in 1981 to devote his time to his favorite activities, bridge, golf, and travel.
He had acquired the rank of Gold Life Master in Bridge, and took great pride in his status as one of a very few Life Masters with numbers in three digits still living. He travelled nationally and internationally playing in major tournaments, lecturing, and teaching bridge. His most frequent partner was his wife Lenore, also a well respected Gold Life Master. Together they played in hundreds of tournaments, placing, or winning a majority. In addition to bridge he was a Black Jack and Backgammon expert.
Frank and Lenore moved from Palm Desert to The Covington, a retirement community in Aliso Viejo in 2001.
