Henry Paul Hensley ’63 graduated from SCU with a B.S. in civil engineering. After graduation, he worked for the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans)—with one pause in the 1970s when he was laid off due to budget cuts—and retired from District 4 after his tenure as deputy district director. Before being promoted to management at Caltrans, he led his local Professional Engineers’ California government chapter. Some of the notable projects he worked on were the reroute of The Alameda, and Highway 380, 85, 87, and the Dumbarton Bridge. He served on the SCU School of Engineering Alumni Board, and in 1999, received the Distinguished Alumni Award from the University. At age 78, Paul died at home in San Bruno on March 31, 2019, surrounded by family. He leaves behind his wife of 51 years, Niki Inez Hensley, two daughters, Eden Hensley Silverstein ’94 and Heather Lenore Hensley ’95, and a granddaughter, Gates Hensley Silverstein.
