Mr. Dennis Ejnert Henderson, age 73, passed away on the evening of April 27th, surrounded by his family. Dennis was born in Atlantic City, Iowa to Ross and Corline Henderson on November 22, 1948. Dennis moved to Colorado with his family in 1950 where they established themselves in Littleton. Dennis graduated from Arapahoe High School in 1966 and continued his education on a baseball scholarship at Western State University. While in Gunnison you never found him far from the ski slopes in Crested Butte. On July 20, 1968 he married the love of his life, Nancy. After deciding to leave Western he joined the Army where in 1972, his Vietnam orders were rescinded and he was discharged to complete his education at Colorado State University. Dennis’ professional career included building homes with his father for Henderson Construction and later went on to work for Koelbel and Company.
Dennis loved hunting, fishing, skiing, but most of all loved his wife, family, and friends. You would not find him far from his grandchildren’s sporting events, family dinners, happy hours, coffee with his sister, Starbucks or working in his yard.
Dennis is survived by his mother, Corline; sister, Christy (Keith) Conrardy; daughters, Cory Kraft, Heather (Todd) Roser, Katie (Jarad) Switzer; grandchildren, Lara, Zachary Dennis, Cade, Harper, Jaxson, Jace, and Kyler Dennis.
Dennis will be missed but after a good fight we find comfort in knowing that he is reunited with our mom and his family that has gone before him.
Services will be held on May 16th at 11am at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Littleton, CO. There will be a reception following at the Littleton Elks.
