Henry A. Roa was born in Joliet Illinois on May 17, 1933. Growing up during the Depression, World War II and the Korean Conflict years gave Henry a strong patriotism for his country, so interrupting his education and job at Western Electric Company, he joined the Army Signal Corp and served in Okinawa. But before he left he married Juanita Rodriguez on March 13, 1954.
He returned in 1956 and they began their life together. And he resumed school part-time.
...
Then late in life a third daughter, Nicole, was born and that is when Henry contemplated on his heritage. He began to investigate Mexican dance to teach Nicole. He searched for an instructor who could teach above average choreography. Henry and Juanita were avid ballroom dancers so he was able to judge professional dance instruction no matter the ethnicity. Henry found the instructors through his son.
In 1979 Edward was attending Illinois Institute of Technology when he asked his father to have him and Nicole dance at a LIFE (Latinos Involved in Further Education) Mexican fiesta. Henry thought it better to have a dance group instead and he found Ofelia Solano's group. Ofelia was the professional that Henry was looking for so Nicole joined her group.
...
Henry also finally earned a degree in that year from Elmhurst College. Four years later Henry took an early pension and began to help the dance company grow. He became its executive director.
He received several awards for this as well as for his work in the community, including awards from:
...
Henry is also associated with Cuerdas Clásicas, Inc. Sones de México Ensemble Chicago, Sociedad Cívica Mexico-Americana in Des Plaines, Asociación de Charros Cuatro Caminos, the Museum of Science and Industry, the Brighton Park Elementary LSC, The Bishop Plácido Rodríguez Auxiliary and The Padre Silva Fund. He served as bilingual tutor at Cooper Upper Grade Center and as a panelist for the Illinois Arts Council, the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and the Michigan Arts Council.
