Henry was born in Oakes, North Dakota to Henry and Lena (Meyers) Wilberts. He lived in Oakes until marrying Mildred Klinkhammer in 1951. They had three sons, Mark, Craig, and Christian.
Henry’s love to create and build took him through many different careers. He was a welder, pipefitter, home builder, and business entrepreneur. He also loved animals and seemed to always have a dual career of farming along with whatever else he was doing. His love for horses culminated in the raising, training, and racing of harness racing horses, something for which he was very proud.
Henry was preceded in death by his wife, Mildred, his son, Christian, his parents and three sisters. He is survived by his sons, Mark (Nancy) of Blaine, MN and Craig (Carolyn) of Osakis, MN; daughter-in-law Susan of Lauderdale, MN; seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
