Brett Lee Henderson



Brett Lee Henderson, age 35, of Atlanta, Ga and formerly of Wallace, NC left this earthly life for his eternal rest on Wednesday, January 3, 2018 from Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta.

He was born on November 17, 1982 in New Hanover County and was the son of Margaret Teachey Henderson of Wallace and the late Curtis Johnson Henderson, Sr. He was predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Adell Quinton Henderson, Sr. and Lillie Casteen Henderson and his maternal grandparents, Herman and Minnie H. Teachey of Watha, NC.

Brett was the North Georgia and Alabama District Sales Manager for Martin Marietta.

Surviving, in addition to his loving mother, is the light of his life; his son, Braden Lee Henderson of Savannah, Ga; sisters, Wanda Merritt of Burgaw and Teresa Michelle Mahoney of Wallace; brothers, Curtis Henderson, Jr., Rodney Steven Henderson and wife, Melanie and Barton Bradley Henderson and Becky, all of Wallace. Brett has 12 nieces and nephews, 11 great nieces and nephews and numerous extended family and friends that loved him dearly.

Brett was a loving father and caring son, brother and friend. He was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed fishing, hunting, diving and playing golf. Brett loved and adored his son and enjoyed every minute he spent with him. With a heart of gold and an awesome personality, Brett was loved by many friends and family. He was a caring, funny and amazing person inside and out. Brett’s life was too short on this earth but during his time here many lives were touched by him. Continuing to bring joy to others, Brett was an organ donor. Since he left us, he has helped more than 30 people by his act of love which includes a blind girl who has received Brett’s eyes. Brett will surely be missed but treasured memories of him will forever live in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.

Memorial service will be held at 1:00pm Wednesday, January 10, 2018 at Lighthouse Family Worship Center, 539 Light House Road, Wallace, NC with Pastor Roland Penny officiating.

The family will receive friends immediately following the service on Wednesday until 3:00pm at the church.
