By RICHARD F. BELISLE Staff Writer MARLOWE, W.Va. -- William F. Henry, a popular Boy Scout leader who was struck and killed by a car on U.S. 11 Sunday, was best known for lending a helping hand, even to strangers, some of his friends said Monday. "Bill would do anything for anyone, give them his last $5," Denise Gorman, a family friend, said from Henry's home in Potomac Heights subdivision in northern Berkeley County. "He would always stop to help somebody else out. That's what he was doing when he was killed," she said.
