Henry G. Uhlig

February 14, 1937 ~ June 16, 2024

Henry G. Uhlig passed away on Sunday, June 16, 2024, at home, surrounded by his loving family. He was born on February 14, 1937, in Oriskany Falls, NY, the son of the late Henry and Gertrude (Godfrey) Uhlig. He was raised in Bouckville, NY and graduated from Madison Central School. On August 3, 1957, in Madison, NY, Henry married Viola M. Kemp and they raised their family in Bouckville. He joined the National Guard in 1956, rising to the rank of sergeant prior to his discharge in 1962. He was a well-known businessman, and formed Uhlig Brothers in 1967 with his brother, Drew. After running a successful snowmobile business, they transitioned into residential construction. Together they renovated and built many homes within the area, and each project, no matter how large or small, benefited from their craftsmanship and attention to detail. In 1990 Henry opened the Depot Antique Gallery in Bouckville, retiring from the business in 2023. Henry’s highest achievement from his business endeavors were the relationships he built with others. He was known for his quick smile, love of listening to and telling stories, his morning ritual of coffee and a donut, and his iconic hat.He loved animals and was an active member of the FFA in high school. He showed a calf that he raised, earning many showmanship ribbons, including grand champion. In the 1970’s he began a hobby of raising purebred Herefords, of which his favorite was Curly. He loved to travel, and visited many states with his wife, Viola. Henry’s greatest joy was spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He formed a special connection with each family member, recognizing and appreciating their individual qualities.

Paris celebrates 2,000th birthday

“On July 8, 1951, Paris, the capital city of France, celebrates turning 2,000 years old. In fact, a few more candles would’ve technically been required on the birthday cake, as the City of Lights was most likely founded around 250 B.C. The history of Paris can be traced back to a Gallic tribe known as the Parisii, who sometime around 250 B.C. settled an island (known today as Ile de la Cite) in the Seine River, which runs through present-day Paris. By 52 B.C., Julius Caesar and the Romans had taken over the area, which eventually became Christianized and known as Lutetia, Latin for “midwater dwelling.” The settlement later spread to both the left and right banks of the Seine and the name Lutetia was replaced with “Paris.” In 987 A.D., Paris became the capital of France. As the city grew, the Left Bank earned a reputation as the intellectual district while the Right Bank became known for business.”
