Henry G., 82, Jacksonville, FL

Henry Gagne, a resident of Harbor Chase Senior Living in Jacksonville, Florida, had his wish to bring the circus, and more specifically, clowns, to his facility to entertain the residents grante.  Henry, 82, was a professional clown for many years, entertaining countless people in the Jacksonville area. He still loves to dress up in his clown outfit and makeup and perform for the other residents, but this is becoming more difficult for him as he ages. Henry is a Navy veteran who served for 21 years including during the Vietnam War. After his discharge, he married and raised a family of four children with his wife. Henry also financially assisted several needy children with their college educations through a foundation. He is known as one of the kindest residents in his community and loves music, giving little gifts to others and clowning around. Henry’s wish was granted on Sunday, October 9th when he dressed up again and performed with clowns from Gator Clowns.  Harbor Chase was decorated like the “big top” and there were circus foods like cotton candy, Crackerjacks, animal crackers and more for the residents to enjoy!
