ActionLink mourns the loss of longtime friend and supporter Henry van Ameringen, who passed away on September 9th at the age of 90.
For over half a century, Henry’s generosity touched hundreds of organizations and all ages of the LGBT community, from homeless youth seeking shelter to older adults wishing to age with dignity. He was an unmatched champion of the battle for LGBT equality, bringing much-needed funding to the community in times of great need.
Henry was one of ActionLink’s first and most passionate supporters, and we will miss sharing our successes and challenges with him in monthly email conversations.
He is survived by his spouse, T. Eric Galloway, and six nieces and nephews. Rest In Power, Henry.
