Obituary for Kermit "Ray" Henson

Kermit “Ray” Henson, 83, of Milford, Michigan passed away on Wednesday, February 2, 2022.

Ray was born in Elk Park, North Carolina on June 6, 1938 to John and Myrtle Henson. His family moved to Michigan when Ray was 12 years old, and it was in high school that he would meet a girl that swept him off his feet, Carol Perkins Wilson, and the two of them were inseparable from that day forward. Ray and Carol were married on May 30, 1956 and started a family.

Ray was ambitious to say the least. He was a self-made man who loved his family and worked hard to spend as much time as he could with them. He worked for many years as a foreman at Paragon Steel before going to Kelsey Hayes in Brighton where he worked as a plant superintendent. Ray retired early, and along with Carol, truly enjoyed life together. He and Carol loved the many family pets that they had over the years.

Beloved husband of Carol for 65 years. Loving father of Scott Henson (Dawn), Barbara Nixon (Harley Scribner) and the late Michael Henson. Devoted grandfather of nine and proud great-grandfather of 20. Dear brother of Clara Whitney (Donald), Jan Cordell (Toby), and Jerry Adkins (Mary). Brother-in-law of James Wilson (Joyce). Ray was preceded in death by his parents, John and Myrtle and his sister, Patti.

Ray was a beloved soul who will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, February 12, 2022 at 11:00am at West Highland Baptist Church 1116 S. Hickory Ridge Rd. Milford, MI 48380.

Those wishing to make an expression of sympathy are asked to consider a donation in Ray’s memory to either Hospice of Michigan or to the church.
