Paul Russell Henderson
August 12, 1951 – March 4, 2018
ESRA lost a great supporter and beloved long-time member of the ESRA Georgia family on March 4, when Paul Henderson passed away after a short illness.
Paul will be remembered for his huge heart – first for his family and second for all Springers in need. In fact, it was volunteering for ESRA that first brought Paul and his future wife Sandi together. They were married in 2011 in front of family and ESRA friends. At that time, their combined household also included Springers Sam, Tony, Spencer and Roxie. Paul never met a Springer he didn’t want to help. He loved every foster dog he met and would have liked to adopt every single one.
Paul received his undergraduate degree from Florida State University and his Master’s Degree from Georgia State University before beginning a distinguished career as a Certified Public Accountant, managing his own firm for many years before his retirement.
Paul traveled the world and had a tremendous thirst for life. Much of his youth and young adulthood were spent with his lifelong best friend, Fred Brock.
Paul was born August 12th, 1951, in Chicago, son of Paul and Marilyn Henderson. He is survived by the love of his life, wife Sandra Garris Henderson, son Nick Henderson, daughter Chelsea and son-in-law David Robles Mora, sisters Laurie Crooks and Lynn Henderson, nephew Ryan Crooks and ESRA Springers Tony and Katie.
