Henry Knox Rives

April 20, 1992 — March 18, 2022

Henry Knox Rives, 29, passed away Friday, March 18, 2022. Henry was born in Portsmouth, VA, on April 20, 1992, to Harold B. Rives, Sr. and Connie S. (Evink) Rives.

He graduated from Clarksville High School in 2010 and attended Austin Peay State University where he was a music major, a member of the Governor’s Own Marching Band (GOMB), and a Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonian. Henry loved his music and played any instrument with ease. He passed along his love of music through teaching lessons to aspiring musicians of all ages. He was a member of several bands in Clarksville and Nashville and never turned down an opportunity to jam with his music family–and he really felt they were his family. Henry was also very active in scouting and was an Eagle Scout with Troop 365 in Sango and a member of the Order of the Arrow.

Henry was preceded in death by his grandparents, Jerry Wayne Rives, Sr. and Norma Kay (Christian) Rives. In addition to his parents, he is survived by his siblings: Harold (Hal) B. Rives, Jr., Heath C. Rives, and Brianna C. Rives.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at Madison Street UMC (Fellowship Hall) in Clarksville, TN, on Thursday, March 24th. A time of fellowship and refreshments will be held from 4:00 to 6:00 PM followed by a memorial service at 6:00 PM where friends and family are welcome to share stories, songs, etc. of Henry.
