Is this sentence written correctly?

I'm writing an essay and having issues. My writing tends to sound awkward. This was my first draft of the sentence:
"His father worries Henry has a death wish and asks the narrator, who seems to be his son’s old friend, for advice, but Henry reminds them of their father’s suicide."
This is my attempt at revising it:
"Henry's father worries that Henry has a death wish and turns to the narrator, an old friend of Henry's, for advice since the narrator has lost his father to suicide."
Is this sentence written correctly? Have I made it less "awkward"? Any suggestions welcome.
