William Eddie Henderson

William “Eddie” Henderson was born August 3, 1950 and went home to be with the Lord Sunday morning, September 25, 2005.

Eddie put up a fight against his battle with cancer and was able to keep his sense of humor until he passed. Eddie was a bachelor for most of his life, was married once for a short time and had no children. He will leave behind many friends and relatives who knew the simple kindness he showed, by offering them a place to stay, or just hang their hat for a while. Yes, Eddie was simple, that’s what made him “Eddie”. Some of the things that he liked to do were shooting, hunting, fishing, going to the movies, and bar-b-ques in the back yard.

Born to Opalence Carrie Onwiler, and adopted and raised by his grandparents Olen and Vergie Henderson, Eddie lived and worked in Madera all of his life. He was employed by the city of Madera, living to be 55 years old; Eddie touch many people in his walk through life and will be remembered and missed by all who knew him. Eddie is survived by his brothers Richard, Tim and Danny, as well as his sister Debbie, many nieces, nephews, aunts, cousins, and friends.

“We Love you Eddie!”

I am so sorry to hear about Eddie's passing. Eddie & I were in the same class starting at Alpha Elementary School and through Madera High. I didn't see Eddie too often through the years, but whenever I did, he was always warm & friendly. We would catch up on our lives and reminisce about the old days. I pray for Eddie and ask God to bless his family. Sincerely, Diane Prosperi Massetti</b></font><br><br>
