HULBERT -- Services for Tommy Dewayne Henson will be Monday April 19, 2010, at the Hulbert High School Gymnasium, with Rev. Gerald Fixin and Rev. Sampson Keener officiating. Interment will follow at the Keener Cemetery in Lost City.
Tommy Dewayne Henson was born in Tahlequah, to Don and Lucille Henson on Sept. 24, 1982. He passed from this life at St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa on April 14, 2010, after reaching the age of 27 years, 6 months and 17 days, with his family at his bedside. Tommy grew up in the Lost City community, where he attended grade school, and would later graduate from Hulbert High School in 2001. Tommy was a gifted young man, from drawing to playing the drums to catching crawdads.
He was very active in sports such as basketball and baseball, but the passion he was fondest of was playing the drums. He enjoyed playing music, especially with his cousin, Adam, alongside him on the bass guitar. Tommy loved family gatherings and chicken and dumplings were always his favorite. He was a socialite and never met a stranger; he enjoyed company and was always up for a good laugh. Tommy had two nieces, Jasie and Mya, for they brought peace and joy to his heart. We will always remember Tommy with a big smile on his face.
Tommy is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Jim and Lucille Henson; his maternal grandparents, Jessie Mae Cochran and Tom Welch; an aunt, Nancy Chuculate; and great-grandparents Rev. Joe and Lucy Drywater.
Those left to cherish his memory are his mom and dad of the home; sisters, Melanie and Jason McCarty of Tahlequah, Teresa Henson of Lost City, and Jessica Henson of Lost City; two nieces, Jasie McCarty and Mya Henson; a very special cousin, Adam Chuculate, of Rocky Ford; and a host of numerous family and friends.
