David Henderson

David Henderson, age 54, of Mt. Ida, AR, passed away February 6, 2020 in Nashville, Tennessee.  Dave was born to the late Jerry and Brenda Henderson on December 20, 1965 in Monticello, Arkansas. 

He is survived by sons, Jared Henderson of San Francisco, CA and Tyler Henderson of Chico, CA; brother, Greg Henderson and his wife Kelli of Springdale, AR; and his faithful dog, Lucky.

After graduating from Mt. Ida High School, David attended the University of Central Arkansas before graduating as a Pharmacist from University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock.  A cancer survivor in his early 20s, Dave enjoyed a long career as a hospital pharmacist.  After suffering heart failure due to complications from his cancer treatment, he received a heart transplant from Vanderbilt University Medical Center in early 2019 and ultimately succumbed to complications during his hard fought recovery.  David enjoyed hunting and fishing, ski trips with friends and family, and traveling the world with his sons.

A visitation will be held 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Friday, February 14 at Caruth-Hale Funeral Home.

A celebration of David’s life will occur at 11 am on Saturday, February 15 at First United Methodist Church Hot Springs.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials be made to either the American Cancer Society or the Friends of Lake Ouachita Lovit Trail, 3812 Highway 270 East, Mount Ida, AR 71957.
