Ken  Henderson


Ken Henderson of Dover, Indiana, passed away Sunday morning, August 25, 2019, surrounded by loved ones. He recently celebrated his 40th wedding anniversary with his best friend and wife, Karla.
He was born March 20, 1949, to the late Colonel Oran K. Henderson (Ret.) and the late Dorothy Lawson (Nanz) Henderson at Ft. Meade, Maryland. Growing up in a military family, Ken moved frequently graduating from high school in Hawaii where he loved spending time surfing. While in Hawaii, his love for the water and strength in swimming and surfing led him to the heroic rescue of two boys who would have otherwise drown.
Prior to retiring, Ken worked as a service manager/electronics technician doing repair of large injection molding machines for Windsor Technologies, LLC (USA), a German-based company. Back at home in Dover, Ken enjoyed wood working and has made bookshelves, benches, tables, etc., that now adorn special places in family members' homes.
Ken will be greatly missed by his wife Karla. He also leaves behind sisters Ann, Esq. (Honorable Samuel) Kline of Lebanon, PA, and Nancy (Kenny) Schultz of Monroe, NY; nieces Dr. Adrienne (Dr. Chris) Cummings, Dr. Audrey (Dr. Joe) Farrell and Abby (Matt) Sanders; and nephews Christopher Schultz and Justin Schultz. Ken will be fondly remembered by his extended family including in-laws, nieces and nephews.

I was very sorry to hear about Ken’s passing. I worked for many years with Ken at Klockner. I have many good memories of our time together. I really thought a lot of him. He was such a nice guy. Our sincere sympathy. Ralph &.Marianne Carr
