Robert Henrey has enjoyed a rich and varied life experience. Thanks to his financial background, he had the opportunity to work in Europe, Asia and Latin America as well as New York City where, for some twenty years, he headed up Coopers and Lybrand’s (since merged with Price Waterhouse to form PwC) International Tax Consulting Practice. After retiring from PwC he served as an interfaith chaplain at Greenwich Hospital a position he held until recently. Ordained a Catholic deacon in 1984, he is a member of Saint Catherine of Siena parish in Riverside. He recently published a memoir, Through Grown Up Eyes: Living with Childhood Fame (2013), describing how he was chosen to be the child star of 1948 British film classic movie THE FALLEN IDOL and how he coped with the unforeseen consequences of this chance event.
Robert and his wife Lisette enjoy travel. He is particularly interested in history, and she shares with him her knowledge of geology and the natural sciences. They are both graduates of Oxford University, where he studied languages—a lifelong interest he continues to pursue in retirement.
