Robert N. Henderson, age 70, of Hayes, passed away Sept. 12, 2019 at Riverside Regional Medical Center, following a lengthy illness. 

Robert, or Bob to his friends, was born on Jan. 19, 1949, in Flemingsburg, Kentucky, to the late Ernest and Dana Henderson. Bob joined the Air Force at a young age where he worked as a crew chief on the F-15 and A-10.  Proudly serving his country for 20 years, he was stationed in England, Germany, Arizona, finally settling his roots in Virginia. While in the Air Force, he continued his lifelong passion of playing the drums with several bands over the years.

Bob truly lived his life to the fullest through fast cars, his planes, playing his drums, talking with family and friends in addition to his canine family. His brother, Ernest, preceded him in death.

Bob will live on through his children, Nikki Cox (Dale), Scott Henderson, Justin Henderson, their mother, Linda West; grandchildren, Anna, Trey, Bobby, Nevah, Alexis, Kelsie, and Owen; brother, Kenneth Henderson; stepmother, Nancy Storey, and canine, Gunner.

The family received friends on Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2019, from 6-7:30 p.m. at Hogg Funeral Home Gloucester Point. A funeral service was held at 2 p.m. Wednesday in the Chapel of Hogg Funeral home. Interment with military honors followed in Rosewell Memorial Garden Cemetery.
