Henry B. Caldwell III, age 62, died May 23, 2017 in Pueblo, Colorado. Henry (known as Ferdy to his family) is survived by his daughter, Charleen (Charlee), his father, Henry B. Caldwell, Jr., and his sister, Liesa Houdashelt (Edward) and her family. He was preceded in death by his mother, Charleen. Henry was born on December 14, 1954 in Pueblo to Henry B. Caldwell, Jr. and Charleen Kunc Caldwell. He attended Goodnight Elementary, Pitts Jr High, and graduated from South High School in 1973. He served in the US Air Force from 1973-1977. He graduated from the University of Southern Colorado with a degree in Mass Communications in 1980. Henry held a variety of jobs and owned several small businesses related to his degree and he worked in the family business, Caldwell's Fabrics and Crafts. However, Henry loved dogs and his favorite business was the last one he owned, The Four Paw Spa. The high point of Henry's life was becoming a father at age 50. He loved his daughter, Charlee, more than anything else in the world. She was his pride and joy and the center of his universe. His sole purpose in life was to be a good father. Henry will be missed by his family and by his many friends.

  1. I was sorry and saddened to learn of Henry’s passing. Such a premature loss of a caring and kind individual. We met while in the Mass Comm program at USC, and became friends. We shared some good laughs and adventures. I remember his love for his black Lab, Melissa. I’m so happy he realized his dream business with Four Paw Spa. As Melissa, and all of his pets, lived on in Henry’s heart and mind, Henry will live on in the hearts and minds of those he left behind. My heartfelt sympathy to Charlee, his dad, Liesa, and the entire family.

  2. So sad to hear of Henry’s passing. We were “desk mates” in the first grade, and he always had me laughing throughout our school years together. Rest in peace my friend!

  3. I knew Henry through my many years at Mesa Vet. He was such a kind and gentle person. I remember his pride when Charlee was born and his many stories of his travel abroad. My condolences to his friends and family.

  4. With deepest condolences to Liesa, Charlee, J.B. & extended family we are very sorry for your loss! I remember we used to tease him a bit on the way to school, but he always could match wits with the best of us. So sorry to lose another special redhead. Pam Lewis-DiFatta
