NEW SCOTLAND — A man of principle and passion, Peter Henner worked for causes he believed in with the same logic and commitment he used when playing chess. He tackled his legal work as he tackled mountains on climbs with his wife — with a sense of adventure.

“He always told everything straight,” said Nancy Lawson, his wife.

Mr. Henner died at his Clarksville home on the evening of Thursday, Sept. 29, 2016. He was 64.
