Wilson R. Henderson, 48, of Sheboygan Falls passed away unexpectedly at his home on Thursday, November 25, 2021.
Wilson was born on October 7, 1973 in Nashville, Tennessee and came to the Plymouth area at an early age. He attended Parnell Grade School and graduated from Plymouth High School. Following high school he enlisted in the U.S. Army and served in Desert Storm. Wilson was a truck driver working for various types of industries most recently in infrastructure construction.
Wilson could look like a grizzly bear with a mischievous grin but was as soft as a teddy bear with a generous heart. If you mentioned you liked something he had he would most likely give it to you. He enjoyed fishing and would watch Wisconsin teams of various sports. He collected sport related memorabilia.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Lucille Keen Yekenewicz and a brother, Dwayne Henderson.
