RISAFF would like to thank all Locals, Members and Honor Guards who participated in the services for Executive Board Chairman, President & Brother Henault.

Thank you to the Brothers and Sisters of Woonsocket Local 732, who arranged an honorable active duty death funeral service for Brother Henault.

The attendance of union leaders and members, fire department chiefs and members, military service members, community leaders, hockey and baseball team players and parents and all his family and friends was a true testament to the person that Jeff Henault was.

As we all continue to grieve for him, please keep his wife and two children in your thoughts and prayers. Also, as a reminder a memorial fund has been established to assist the family, please consider donating.

Fraternally,

RISAFF Leadership
