USCIB marks with great sadness the death of Clifford Henry, who chaired our Corporate Responsibility Committee since its inception and demonstrated a lifelong commitment to bettering the lives of others.

Clifford passed away on October 25 at age 64 following a long illness. A 35-year veteran of Procter & Gamble, he most recently served as the company’s associate director of global sustainability.

USCIB President Peter Robinson and USCIB Senior Counsel Ronnie Goldberg, both of whom worked closely with Clifford, issued a joint statement of condolence.

“Clifford’s death leaves an enormous hole in our organization, as well as in our hearts,” they said. “He could always be relied upon to contribute his time, his copious energy, and his invaluable advice, experience and wisdom to our work. He did so with humor and optimism, and in recent years with remarkable courage. It is an understatement to say he will be missed.”

Services for Clifford Henry were held on November 1 at Mueller Funeral Home in Mason, Ohio. Donations in his name may be made to the Bone Marrow Foundation and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Friends and colleagues of Clifford are encouraged to contribute to an online guestbook.

Added Adam Greene, senior advisor in the ILO’s Bureau for Employers’ Activities, who worked with Clifford for many years as USCIB’s vice president of labor and corporate responsibility, “He was a true friend and leaves us all much better off for having known him.”
