Jimmy Wayne Henson

Jimmy Wayne Henson was born to Bernice and Arie Henson August 5, 1951 in Excelsior Springs, MO.

He was a loving son, brother, father, husband, papa, and friend.

He was a Harley riding, ice cream loving, proud Marines Vet and the biggest jokester around. He truly loved making others laugh. He was a home body and a wonderful family man. He had a knowledge of so many things. He loved flowers and gardening and was a giver of beautiful gifts. He had a heart of gold. He was a jack of all trades and was an artist in every sense of the word. He could draw, paint, weld, build, create, and truly do anything he set his mind to. He loved to fish and spend time with his children and grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife of 28 years, Amy Henson; mother, Bernice Henson; brothers, Johnny, Jeff, and Jay Henson; children, Michelle Henson, Joe Henson, Jesse Henson, Josie Henson, and Katie Speiser; grandchildren, Christian, Rhayne, Jaxon, Garrett, Hayden, Aurora, Carson and Liam.

Our Sincere Condolences

Jim was as good a man as you could find in this world. It was an honor to be one of his friends.

I grew up next door to Jimmy when we were children.  His mother Bernice was my babysitter.  I am so sorry for your loss.  I have fond memories of the family.  I do remember Jimmy was ornery and happy.

I knew Jim from my youth growing up in Excelsior. He was a good friend, very strong physically but never had a mean streak in him, and he could have been a bully, but never was. I also kept in touch with Jim in the later years and he impressed me as a man who was gentle, caring and much loved by his friends and family. A good soul. Goodby Jimmy

Amy, my deepest condolences to you. I’m praying for your comfort and peace.

I could do a 10 minute stand-up comedy routine on some of my escapades with Jim, from our youth, that would have the whole room rolling on the floor, laughing. Super great guy. My deepest condolences to his family.

Jimmy was a great friend.  He and I were roommates, sharing an apartment in Excelsior Springs.  He was fresh out of the Marines and I was just striking out on my own.  He was my mentor.  He taught me a lot about being a man.
We had many grand adventures together, but I believe I’ll keep those to myself.
My condolences to his friends and family.  May his memory be a blessing.  It certainly is to me.

Jim became my uncle after his brother married my mom and he was always so kind to me and made me feel welcome at family gatherings. He treated my like I had always just been a part of the family. He was the absolute best storyteller and had a way with words that made him the most entertaining and fun person to be around. He had a great laugh and brought a lively spirit to every gathering. He was also exceptionally talented and could fix just about anything. He will certainly be missed! Sending love to Amy and all who are impacted by his loss.
