Kenneth’s service to God was witnessed in his commitment and faithfulness to First Baptist and Grace Baptist Church’s in Weatherford. He demonstrated great humility serving God as he witnessed his Christianity in his daily activities to his fellowman.
After retiring, Kenneth continued to live life to its fullest while enjoying annual fishing trips with his family and DPS buddies, as well as many other friends. He enjoyed traveling the highways and byways with Dixie in their RV, where they met and developed lifelong friendships with a host of fellow campers who also quickly became extended family. He continued to nurture his DPS relationships as he and Dixie traveled many “happy trails” with the retired “DPS Road Runners” and friends and fellow travelers from church and square dance groups of “days gone by.”
In his spare time, which was little because of the abundance of blessings that filled his life, Kenneth deeply loved to spend time in his shop in Peaster, where he passed along many talents to Danny, Kale and Keaton. He also loved going to the farm in Winnsboro and enhancing the Henson family cemetery, also in Winnsboro, where his remains will be laid to rest.
Kenneth’s immediate family, along with a multitude of extended family and friends, will miss the pleasure of Kenneth’s presence more than can be imagined or expressed. The family of Kenneth Henson is proud to say, “We come from good stock. We thank you. We love you, Kenneth, Dad, Poppy.”
He is preceded in death by parents, two brothers Gail and Henry and one sister, Bobbie June; and in-laws, Arlis (Pot) and Johnnie Ruth (Granny) Haun.
In lieu of flowers the family suggest donations to some of the organizations Kenneth and Dixie have supported for many years: St. Jude’s, Weatherford Meals on Wheels, Wounded Warrior or Shriner’s Hospital.
The Henson family extends great gratitude and thankfulness for the abundance of love poured out to them during the past few weeks through all the personal visits, food, flowers, phone calls, cards and prayers. Please know your love is received and felt deeply, for indeed it is.
“May the abundance of blessings bestowed upon us, be returned to you tenfold.” Dixie and family.
