CARTHAGE - Henry Clark Yaddow, 87, of 23169 Boyd Road, died peacefully early Friday morning, February 25, 2022, at home with his loving family by his side. Henry was born on June 4, 1934, son of the late Henry Joseph and Bertha Irene (Tomlinson) Yaddow. He attended schools in Gouverneur and Carthage. He was engaged in farming with his parents until entering the United States Army in 1954. During his time in the Army, he was stationed in Aschaffenburg, Germany as well as Fort Riley, Kansas where he received an honorable discharge in 1958. On October 15, 1958 he went to work for Crown Zellerbach in Carthage where he was employed as a plant operator, retiring in 1994 after 34 years of dedicated service. Henry was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed deer hunting and ice fishing. He also enjoyed cutting wood and helping his neighborhood out with his John Deere Tractor. Henry knew no strangers and was always quick with an anecdote, story, or joke. He enjoyed visiting with people and traveling the countryside for a tractor pull or auction. A marriage to Sylvia J. Lamb on June 21, 1959 ended in divorce. Henry is survived by a son, Martin L. and his wife Jo Anne T.
