Resident of Santa Rosa, passed away on Friday, October 19, 2012. He was born to Diane Blair and Donald Henderson on July 26, 1955 in Pasadena, CA. Bill is survived by his father, children (Jill, Jacob, Holly and Lily), siblings, nieces and nephews. He was a skilled craftsman who spent his years as a woodworker for both nautical and residential projects. Bill was a sailor at heart and loved to be on the water. He had a charismatic personality and people were easily drawn to his silly humor and storytelling abilities. Never one to follow the rules, Bill could often be found talking his way out of trouble or just having some fun. Bill brought love and laughter into the lives of his family and friends, he will truly be missed. A memorial will be held, Saturday, November 10, 2012 at 3:00 p.m., at Gateway Christian Church on 311 Professional Center Dr, Rohnert Park, CA 94928.
