When I saw this obituary, I was so sad to see that Tom had passed away. I worked with Tom at South Central in the 1990's. I would work the radio room with him occasionally and had so much fun time with him. He made work so fun. I still have the coffee cup he gave me on the day he retired. My condolences to the entire family .. Tom was such a good man. .

My thoughts and prayers are with the Henning Family. I was assigned to Central Patrol Evening Shift in 1978 when I first met Tom as a young rookie police officer. Tom took care of the young rookie police officers with his guidance, knowledge, and friendship. I will always remember Tom as a great man, friend, and police officer. Tom may you rest in peace.

It was an honor to haved served with him. Please accept my sincere condolences and may God grant you strength in the days ahead. Tom, I know you're guarding the streets of Heaven now. Semper Fidelis

August 1992 was when I first met Officer Henning. We all knew him as "Tom." Friendly, outgoing, and always there for us rookies. We will miss you but you will never be forgotten. R.I.P. our good friend.

I was lucky to have known Tom at the South Central Sub Station, he was a very well respected and would always have words of wisdom for any officer.

I met Tom at central patrol in 1982. Tom was a fun loving guy always friendly. I learned from Tom how to be friendly to all of the strangers that called or stopped by the sub-station. Tom was one of those guys that could take it as well as he dished it out. Tom will be dearly missed.

I met Tom in September of 1984 when I came to Central from the Academy. He was always very nice to the rookies and I always enjoyed talking to him, which I did often. I was very sad when he went to South Central when Central split into the two stations. I very much wanted him to stay. Over the years I'd have a reason to go to South Central and I would stop by the desk and visit with him for a while. He was one of those guys that probably didn't remember a guy like me, but I have always had fond memories of how he treated the new guys and the visits over the years. He was just what you thought of when you thought of the old HPD. His family should be very proud of his years at the department.

I’m sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of working with Tom at the South Central Station for many years. Tom was a very nice person and would do his best to take care of all officers who would run late, just bring donuts and all was forgiven ...

Rest In Peace Tom and God Bless his family ...
