Christopher Tory A. Henderson Obituary
HENDERSON, Christopher Tory Alexander Of Hingham, age 37, on February 11th after a brave two-year battle with cancer. He died at home, surrounded by people who loved him and in whose hearts his strength, courage and love will live forever. He is survived by his much beloved and devoted wife, Heather Wilson Henderson, his adored son, Colin James, his much loved and loving parents and sister, Richard and Linda Henderson and Emily Miller, of Hingham. He is also survived by his nieces, Sophie, Caroline and Lydia Miller, who will sorely miss their uncle Toph, by his Father and Mother-in Law, Roger and Lynn Wilson of Cheshire, Connecticut who welcomed him to their family as a friend and another son, and by Mairead and Greg Wilson of Duxbury, Heidi Wilson of Waterford, Connecticut, and Andrew Miller of Hingham to whom he was not only a brother-in-law but also a cherished brother and friend. He was a 1996 graduate of Trinity College, Hartford, and a 2005 graduate of New England School of Law. He was, along with his father, a partner in the law firm of Henderson and Henderson in Cohasset. He was an avid swimmer, and his "Topher Dive" was, for years, emulated by younger Cohasset swimmers. He was the founder of the Cohasset High School Swim Team and its first captain. Visiting hours will be from 5 - 8 pm on Tuesday, February 15th in Upper Weld Hall at the Church of St. John the Evangelist. His funeral and a service of Holy Eucharist and thanksgiving for his life will take place at 11 am on Wednesday, February 16th at the Church of St John the Evangelist, 172 Main Street, Hingham, MA. By his request, he will be buried at sea in a private ceremony. In lieu of flowers, donations in his name to Norwell V.N.A. and Hospice, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and the Jimmy Fund are requested.
