Bill Henson Obituary

Billie David Henson, a man whose passion for life was as wide as the Oklahoma skies, passed away on December 31, 2023, in Antlers, Oklahoma, with the same grace he carried throughout his 76 years. Born on March 3, 1947, in Nashville, Tennessee, Bill's journey was one rich with love, laughter. Those who knew him will remember a man of integrity, strong will, and an unwavering zest for the great outdoors.

He found his soulmate in Petrina Henson, with whom he exchanged vows on April 28, 2016, in Hugo, Oklahoma. Together, they cultivated a life full of joy and companionship. Bill leaves behind a loving family, including his cherished wife and best friend Petrina, his daughters Lisa Henson, Kayla Woodall, MaNiya Woodall, Kimberly Brewer, Kateline Brewer, and Kasey and her husband Jonny Bean. His legacy also lives on in his eight adored grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren, who will miss their grandfather's boundless spirit and tender guidance.

Bill's sisters Paula Jones, sister-in-law's Demetria and Rayson Gibson, and Denisa and her husband Luther Barnes, will fondly recall his steadfast presence and the warmth of his laughter. In the glow of his memory, they stand united, thankful for the time they shared with a truly exceptional man.

Throughout his life, Bill formed irreplaceable bonds with numerous friends who were drawn to his larger-than-life persona. Whether he was setting out jug lines on a serene lake, dealing a hand of poker, or reveling in the serenity of nature while camping and fishing, Bill was fully in his element. Above all, the times spent enveloped in the company of his wife were his most treasured moments.

Bill's departure leaves a void in the hearts of those he touched, yet his inspiring joy for life will endure as a guiding force for all who had the privilege of knowing him. His was a life well-lived, and his spirit will continue to light the way forward for his beloved family and friends.

A service for Bill will be held at a later date.
