William "Bill" Hartwell Henderson (1933-2016)

Bill, 83 of Aurora, passed away on July 3, 2016. He was born in Gainesville Texas, April 15, 1933 and graduated from North Texas State University in 1954 as a member of the Lamda Chi Alpha fraternity. Bill served in the U.S. Army right after the Korean War and moved to Denver in 1960 working the oil industry. In late sixties, he began working in the bio-medical field where he received numerous awards including his company's "Man of the Year Award" in 1973. Bill's favorite past times were spending time with his children and grandchildren, playing golf, barbequing (a true master), and cheering on his beloved Denver Broncos to three World Championships.

He is preceded in death by his parents, William E. (Bill) and Eula Henderson, his brother Norbert and his son Keith. He is survived by his wife Emily of 47 years, son Kelly Henderson (CAPT, USN, ret.)
