Early Life and Education
Henry Thrasher was born and raised in New York City. He attended Fiorella H LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts before enrolling at London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art for further study.
He engaged in a comprehensive practice that used all his powers; its successes satisfied his ambition, while its emoluments provided the means for living freely. Furthermore, there was no suspicion of sharp practice or employing unfair or dishonorable means in his warfare; all was open, fair and honorable in its conduct.
He was an earnest and conscientious individual with an attractive physique, leading a pure, temperate, blameless life, possessing mental and moral attributes which should have brought him to the top of his profession or onto the bench of the supreme court. Tragically he died at age forty-five despite having made notable contributions within two or three counties that could have elevated him further; although greatness still lay before him.
Henry Thrasher is a civil engineer and co-founder of Thrasher Engineering Inc in West Virginia, established in 1983. Since its launch, Thrasher Engineering has become one of the state’s premier privately-owned construction management firms.
Born and educated in New York City, he attended Fiorella LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts before attending Carnegie Mellon University and studying drama at London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. As an actor, his acting credits include playing Pierre in CMU’s regional premiere of Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 and Topher in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella.
As well as acting, he enjoys photographing lighthouses, haunted houses, and amusement parks. Additionally, he likes reading, traveling and internet surfing – his favourite activities! Additionally he serves as digital executive producer for 8News.
Achievement and Honors
Henry Thrasher received the Wickenburg Chamber of Commerce’s “Henry Award” for his life of service to the community. Thrasher served as an invaluable resource for staff at Desert Caballeros Western Museum as well as visitors seeking information about Wickenburg history such as Massacre and Vulture Mine events.
He engaged in open, direct, and honorable combat; never wavering from his goal until every lawful strategy had been exhausted; in pursuit of it he steadily increased his ability and industry, mastering law fully to become one of his kind; truly becoming the perfect gentleman.
Thrasher is an avid sports fan who also loves squirrel hunting, playing washers and cards with friends, and picking his guitar. A graduate of Fiorella H. LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts in New York City, he currently attends Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Drama in Pittsburgh PA where his focus is musical theatre and Classical Acting.
His ability and industry would have propelled him into prominence had they been met by fortune. Instead, they allowed for only limited success as an attorney despite his physicality and purity of life. Instead, his career flourished only briefly before eventually moving from Geauga and Lake counties into Ashtabula for occasional practice sessions.
He advocated cases with great enthusiasm and passion on behalf of his clientele, never backing down until every potential avenue was exhausted.
