The younger brother of 92 year old Tahltan elder Roy Quock, passed away today. Henry Quock succumbed to a struggle with cancer.
“He was a great man and seemed to love everybody,” stated August Brown as he remembered his friend, “He worked as a prospector, staked claims, worked on the rivers snagging, worked as a guide for big game outfitters and even for fisheries. Just about everything a guy can work doing.”
“One of my favourite memories is looking up to Henry riding Broncs, which got me interested in riding Broncs too.
“He made things real; he was a real story teller. He liked to talk about hunting sheep; always interested in talking about what he did. He was a good person, good natured, respecting animals and the land.”
Henry’s home was Telegraph Creek where many of his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren still reside.Read about Tahltan Elders and the Sacred Headwaters Here
