He was preceded in death by his parents, Clifford and Helen (Staton) Henderson; wife, Jeraldine Henderson; one son, Joe Henderson; and two brothers, Everett Henderson and Roger Henderson.

A visitation will be held on Monday, August 1, 2022 from 10 am until 12 noon at Aikins-Farmer-Loftus-McManus Funeral Home. A graveside service will follow at Cagle Cemetery in Samoth, IL with Rev. Frank Forthman Jr. officiating.
