Born March 13, 1965, in Tyler to Perry Lee and Vassie D. (Owens) Henderson, he was known as a gentle bear of a man with a kind and generous heart.

He later served first as vice president and then president of Caring Friends Center.
He loved to visit with friends at The Round-Up Saloon, and that is where he met his partner, Cary Campbell.
Henderson was preceded in death by his father Perry Lee Henderson, sisters Patsy Hardin and Terrie Dee Alphin, his partner Cary Campbell, his best friend Richard Curry and his dog Rowdy.
He is survived by his mother, Vassie Henderson of Mesquite; sisters, Belinda Westberry and husband Tommy of Carroll Community, Debora Gaston of Mesquite and Sherrie Harris and husband Jeff of Richardson; and numerous relatives and friends.
