Tyrell Henderson was called home to glory at the young age of 54 years old on Jan. 18, 2014, at Presence United Samaritans Medical Center in Danville.
Tyrell was born March 3, 1959, in Chicago. He was one of 10 children born to Lettie and Chester Henderson. Tyrell confessed Christ at a young age and re-dedicated his life at 21st Century Christian Worship Center before God called him home. Tyrell loved to spend time with family and friends, enjoying harmonic singing, sharing laughter and reminiscing about the “good times.”
Ty, as some called him, had a love for boxing and weightlifting and would mentor anyone who showed an interest. He was self-employed and was loved and respected by many in the community.
Tyrell leaves to cherish: two daughters, Tyreesha and Tarina Henderson; and three sons, Moses Reed, and Tyrell and Terrence Henderson, all of Danville; four sisters, Lavonne of Cincinnati, Ohio, Brenda and Donna of Danville and Leria (Darryl) of Clarksville, Tenn.; three brothers, Monty (Lisa) of Chicago, John Earl of Rantoul and Marc of Indiana; eight grandchildren; and a host of special nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
Tyrell was preceded in death by his mother, father and two brothers.
