Obituary of Bill "Hendo" Henderson William “Hendo” Henderson 1955-2019

Hendo deeply cherished the many friendships he made over the years and will be greatly missed by all that knew him. Bill had a distinguished career with Manulife for 34 years retiring as a Regional Vice President, Individual Insurance Sales. He then enjoyed a short but successful career in Real Estate. Through his life, he developed a deep appreciation of music (especially live music) and sports. He loved to cheer on the Leafs, the Raptors, the Bills and anyone on a golf course. The only thing he liked better than a good party was a great nap. In recent years he found great joy in being of service to others and touched many lives. He leaves behind is loving and incredible wife Bobbi (Suzanne).



I just wanted to thank you and Get Rec’d for an incredible stay at Blue Mountain. Cameron and Austin had a great time exploring the resort and of course, the water park. I wish you could have heard Cameron’s giddy laughter going down the Ridge Ride. It’s sort of like a roller coaster down the side of the mountain. I have to admit, I had my own permanent grin on the way down. Thank you again for the wonderful break! It was an absolute blast!
