Thomas Henderson Obituary – After a courageous fight against stage four cancer that lasted four years, Michael Thomas Henderson Sr. passed away on Saturday, February 4, 2023, at the comfort of his own home. His physician referred to him as a “Miracle”! The love he had for his wife, his cherished kids, and his grandchildren served as a source of inspiration and fortitude for him. Nick Henderson, who has been Cathy’s devoted husband for the past half century.
Their love served as an example to a great number of people. They remained inseparable throughout high school and even after graduation. James R. Henderson and Michael T. Henderson Jr. (Nicole Epperson) are blessed to call him their cherished father. “Paw Paw” to Adalynn Mae Henderson and Jude Francis Henderson, whom he is the proudest and who adores him madly.
Respected child of Margaret (Cody) Henderson and the late Harry E. Henderson Jr. Beloved brother of Richard Henderson (who is married to Michelle), Gail Ferguson (who is married to Edward), and Mary Signaigo (who is married to Bob). My sincere condolences go out to Robert Nick and Robert’s late brother, Thomas Nick. Mike received his diploma from McCluer in the year 1969.
Local 36 trade school graduate, served in the National Guard for six years, and was a co-owner of Bermuda Air Conditioning Company until his retirement in 2014. Mike and his family had a good time on their vacation at Lake of the Ozarks, but his true passions were his wife, his sons, his two grandchildren, and his Jeep, which he called “Luv ya Blue.”
He had a lot of fun taking his Jeep out for races, and his sons have taken up his hobby of working with cars in the garage. He always looked forward to spending time with our Gravelrama family and volunteering to assist his sons. Mike was a member of the “Elks Lodge #9,” and you’ll never find a more kind or compassionate soul than him in all of history.
