April 5, 1962 — October 22, 2017

Henry W. WHITESELL, 55, of Rexville, NY, died Sunday, October 22, 2017 in his home.
Born April 5, 1962, in Wellsville, NY, he was the son of Francis Melvin and Marjorie Faulkner Whitesell.
Henry worked as a farmhand, logger, and woodcutter and was a jack of all trades.  He was the type of man that would give you the shirt off his back.  If there was something that you needed, he would give it to you or let you borrow it with no questions asked.  He would stop whatever he was doing to help you out.  Henry loved all his kids and tried to the best of his ability to give and provide for them so they could have the best life possible.
Surviving are:  five children, Jeanette (Walter) Hammond, Ashley (Steve) Gallaher, Betty Sue Whitesell, Dustin W. Whitesell, and Kiley Whitesell;  three grandchildren, Anthony Limprun, McKayla Gallaher, and Riley Gallaher;  six siblings, Nancy (Jeff) Empson, Ann Whitesell, Lillian (Shawn) Delill, Amy (Robert Lewis) Whitesell, Dennis Whitesell, and Shirley Ryan;  nieces, nephews, and cousins;  and longtime friend, Helen Snyder.  In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by a sister, Vicki Whitesell.
Friends may call at the Olney Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Ulysses, PA on Friday, October 27, 2017 from 4:00 - 6:00 PM, with Funeral Services following at 6:00 PM.  The Rev. Trevor Price will officiate.  Burial will be in Genesee Cemetery.
