Dr. Michael Ray Henderson
'Mike'
Dr. Michael 'Mike' Ray Henderson, 59, died on June 19, 2018, at the Spartanburg Regional Medical Center. He is mourned by his wife of 35 years, Nancy; his children Lauren, Drew, and Jake; his parents, Pearl and Ray Henderson; his brother Steve and sister-in-law Janea; and other family and friends.
Mike was born in Birmingham, Alabama, on July 19, 1958, and raised in Spartanburg. Growing up, he attended Westminster Presbyterian Church, competed on football and wrestling teams, and received his Eagle Scout award. He graduated from Spartanburg High School in 1976 and from college at Wake Forest University in 1980. That fall, he enrolled in medical school at Wake Forest, where he met Nancy. They married in 1983 and graduated in 1984.
After completing a residency in orthopaedic surgery and a fellowship in foot and ankle surgery, Mike and his family returned to Spartanburg. He joined his father's medical practice, Orthopaedic Associates, now Carolina Orthopaedic and Neurological Associates. Since returning to Spartanburg, he also served as the team physician to the Spartanburg High School athletic department.
Mike was always looking to learn. His interests included religion, history, sports, art, and music. He loved the written word-he was seldom without a book in his hands-and became an avid journaler during a family trip in 2008. He enjoyed cooking and playing Scrabble.
A memorial service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 22, at 'The George,' located at 160 East St. John Street in Spartanburg. In remembrance of Mike, donations to support college scholarships for Spartanburg High School graduates may be made to the District Seven Foundation Fund [0853] c/o The Spartanburg County Foundation at 424 E. Kennedy Street, Spartanburg, SC 29302.
