His childhood during the 1930s was hard due to his father's alcoholism and inability to hold a job. Henry was a Marine in World War II and Korea then joined the NYPD in 1952. Like his grandson, Danny, Henry is socially conservative and hates the political correctness of modern law & order. His wife Betty died December 2, 2001.

Henry had a hip replacement before the pilot and has difficulty getting up from a seat the first three episodes.

He had "a war cholesterol" before "knowing when to retreat".[1] In the same episode, he also discusses a lot about the old days when he was commissioner, and the different expectations people had. He notes that even criminals didn't respect cop-killers.

He used to play handball and now likes to watch it, he taught Danny how to play as well.[2]
