Edward M. Henderson, age 76, passed away on Tuesday, April 6, 2021. Mr. Henderson was born March 6, 1945, to the late Fred M. Henderson and the late Sara J. Henderson of Rome. He graduated from East Rome High School in 1963, served in the United States Air Force and graduated from Berry College in 1972. He was married to the late Lesley J. Henderson on December 27, 1973. Ed worked as an accountant for Read, Martin, and Slickman, where he was a partner from 1978 until his retirement in 2008. Through the years Ed was active in the United Way, the Exchange Club of Rome, and The Boys and Girls Clubs of Rome. Ed enjoyed traveling with his family and friends and was always up for a drink and story-telling downtown. He had a love for sports, and when he wasn’t at the games, he could be found in his recliner watching them on TV. His granddaughters were the light of his life, and he loved telling people about them. He is survived by his three sons: Eric Henderson (Courtney), Blake Henderson (Amanda,), and Mark Henderson; his three granddaughters: Ryan, Morgan and Joley, and several nieces.

We were so saddened to hear of Ed's passing. We go way back! Ken and Ed started out together at RM&S back in the early 70s, when we were considered the "young ones" there.
We lived next door to him and Lesley in the Chateau Apartments right after we got married and had some great times and parties together.
He and Ken had nicknames for each other, Ed was "Bear" and Ken was "Hawkeye" He was such a joy to be around and always made us laugh. Our sons had regular playdates and I'll always remember Lesley as such a devoted and loving mother.
Although career paths separated us, we still kept in touch throughout the years and were hoping someday soon he'd stop by on his way to Gatlinberg
Fond memories of a truly wonderful guy, we will miss his friendship
