Gary Lynn Henderson, Sr. was born April 23, 1964 to the late Mr. James E. Henderson, Sr. and Ms. Alean D. Henderson in Stuttgart, Arkansas. 

Gary confessed his hope in Christ at an early age and later joined The Center of Hope Ministries, under the leadership of Pastor Rodney Henderson, where he remained a faithful member until his transition. Gary was active in the church. He served as an Usher.

Gary’s earthly soul transcended on March 17, 2022. He was preceded in death by his father James E. Henderson, Sr., son Kendrick Henderson, and sisters Patricia Love Bailey and Lillie Ann Taylor.

He leaves an abundance of love and memories to his mother Alean D.
