Eric Leo Henderson 9/26/67 - 3/7/07
Eric's life was shortened by a tragic accident March 7, 2007. He was born September 26, 1967 to Leo and Ranee Henderson at Fort Buckner, Okinawa, Japan. He graduated from Hillcrest High School in 1986 and earned his bachelors degree from the University of Utah in 1992. He was the General Manager for Coast Crane of Utah. In 2002 he married the love of his life, Raquel. Since childhood Eric had a passion for flying, and felt such peace while he was in the air. He earned his private pilot license and soloed in 2000 and has since become a Certified Flight Instructor. He tirelessly worked on required certifications in hopes of becoming an airline pilot. He enjoyed being with his family and planning vacations and outings for them. They will all miss the annual Lake Powell adventure. Eric was a loving husband, father, son and brother.
