Quinn, 77, of Jamestown, RI died peacefully with family by his side in his winter home in Vero Beach, Florida after a long and brave battle with non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Henry was an accomplished and popular educator, having influenced hundreds of lives during his career as an English teacher and vice principal at North Kingstown High School. Henry was born in West Warwick, RI on February 20, 1929, the youngest of six children, to the late Arcelia (Demers) Quinn and Charles C. Quinn. His sisters Eileen (Talbot), Barbara (Phillips), Virginia (Finnerty), Nancy (Michels) and brother, Charles, pre-deceased him. He was the grandson of the late Col. Patrick Henry Quinn, and the nephew of the late Maisie E. Quinn and the former Governor of Rhode Island, the late Judge Robert E. Quinn-individuals who significantly influenced him throughout his life. He was a devoted son, husband, father, grandfather and friend. Henry is survived by his closest friend and constant companion, his wife of nearly 30 years, Alicia (Parente) Quinn; and by his loving children Maureen Elizabeth Quinn of Jamestown, RI, Peter Quinn of Wickford, RI, Martha Huston of Glocester, RI, and Susan Quinn Romano and Marisa Quinn, both of Jamestown.

After retiring from North Kingstown High School in 1984, Henry worked at the Exeter Country Club, where he served for 20 years, golfing as much as possible when he wasn't working in the Pro Shop. Henry played bocce, and was part of the "Shamrock League," which was composed of some of his closest friends, including David Reidy. An ardent reader, Henry was often seen sitting in the sun outside his home with a book in hand. He enjoyed the theater-particularly Trinity Repertory Theater-fine dining and cocktail hour. He loved long walks in Jamestown, and will be remembered by those in the community whom he knew since moving to the Island in 1968 for his walks through town, responding to passersby with an enthusiastic wave and his characteristically infectious smile. Henry graduated from West Warwick High School and enlisted with the U.S. Army as a paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division. Through the G.I. Bill, he attended Providence College, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in English. He later received a principal's certificate from the University of New Hampshire. During the Korean War he was with 101st Airborne, and was stationed in Panama. He once remarked that his greatest accomplishment was raising his family of six children. "We have enjoyed a beautiful home and good health," he explained. Henry will be cremated, with a private ceremony to be scheduled later this season. Per his wishes and instructions, there will be a celebration of his life at his favorite location, the Exeter Country Club, once the weather warms up. Friends and relatives will be notified.

RILEY [Pittsburgh PA, Post-Gazette, 1 March 1996] Richard A. Riley, former chairman, chief executive and president of Firestone Tire & Rubber Co., died Wednesday at the Manor Care Nursing Home in Akron, Ohio. He was 79. The cause of death  was a heart attack or a stroke, said his daughter, Janet Altenau of Hudson, Ohio.  Mr. Riley, who spent his entire career at Firestone, served in sales manufacturing and financial management positions in five Firestone divisions and held the presidency of four of them. He became a member of the board in 1970, and was named president of the Akron-based company two years later. He became chief executive and president in 1973, and chairman in 1980. He retired as chairman in 1981 but remained on the board until 1982. In 1975, Mr. Riley despaired for the free enterprise system in an article he wrote for Ward's Auto World magazine. Contending that "creativity and initiative" were being stifled by what he saw as a proliferation of government laws and regulations, he said it was time to "admit that the term 'free enterprise' is dead." "Realistically and regretfully, we must face the fact that the nation now operates under a 'controlled enterprise' system," he wrote, "and unless the headlong dash to regulate our individual and business lives comes to a halt soon, we will even have to eliminate the word 'enterprise.' " Mr. Riley was born in Fall River, Mass., and received a bachelor of arts degree from Providence College in Rhode Island in 1937. He joined Firestone as an accountant at its latex plant in Fall River in 1939. The company, which has since been acquired by Bridgestone Corp. of Japan, is now known as Bridgestone-Firestone Inc. and has its headquarters in Nashville, Tenn.
