Henry Doubleday Waters ’52

Henry Doubleday Waters ’52 was born on April 20, 1930, in Buffalo, New York, and passed away on January 4 at the Avow Hospice Facility in Naples, Florida, surrounded by his loving family. Henry graduated from Nichols School in Buffalo in 1948 and Dartmouth, where he was a sociology major, a member of Alpha Delta Phi and Sphinx, and a varsity letterman on the hockey team. After college he worked at the family business, the Canteen Corp. franchise in Buffalo, and became president of that company in 1957. He sold the business in 1965 and returned to the Nichols School as an English teacher, with a variety of other responsibilities, and a coach of multiple sports, including 16 years as varsity hockey coach. He retired from Nichols in 1990. Henry was predeceased in 1994 by his wife of 42 years, Sibyl Dann Waters. Henry and Sibyl were married midway through his senior year at Dartmouth. He is survived by his life partner of 23 years, Ann Merrick; children John, Henry “Jay,” and Sibyl and their spouses; seven grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren. Henry was an active and well-respected alumnus of Dartmouth and spent a number of retirement years dividing time between a home in Quechee, Vermont, and Naples.
