Vera and family, we were both so sorry to hear of Don’s passing and we are all thinking of you and sending our heartfelt condolences. He will certainly be missed but never forgotten.

Condolence from Brad McGhie on October 18th, 2015 1:01 PM

Don and Vera were ever present at Medway High School as all four children competed in a number of different sports. Don, the gentle giant, was one of the strongest men I knew, in character as well as physical condition. How tragic that he should be stricken with such a debilitating illness so early in life.
His legacy will live on through his children who continue to coach local sports, especially his son Greg who teaches and coaches at Medway, challenging his athletes, as Don once did, to find their true athletic potential.
My condolences to the Henderson family at this difficult time.
