Fred Henderson Obituary, Death Cause – We are deeply saddened to inform you of the demise of Fred Henderson, a former owner of the company and a pioneer in its early days. Fred passed away on Tuesday, March 21, 2016, with his devoted family members surrounding him. Fred was someone who was deeply loved by his family and friends, and the magnitude of the loss that will be felt as a result of his departure is difficult to put into words. Together with his immediate family, those of us who were fortunate enough to have worked for or known him will experience a profound sense of loss as a result of his passing.
He was a motivated innovator and accomplished President who developed and expanded a company that today represents and practices the same ideas he led with. He established and grew a firm that still represents and practices the same principles. He was accomplished. After starting out at Nu-Wool as a salesperson in 1970, Fred eventually became a shareholder in the company alongside his wife Jenny in 1972. The next three decades were Fred’s tenure as President of Nu-Wool, and in the 1990s, the Henderson family acquired full ownership of the business.
Nu-Wool is still run by members of the same family, and it was established on the groundwork laid by their father and grandparents. Fred, who was the grandfather of the company, had a great degree of affection for the individuals he worked with as well as the merchants he dealt with. Fred might be found sipping coffee in the break room, playing golf with customers, assisting on the plant floor, or completing any activity that needed to be done when he was not overseeing the day-to-day operations of the company.
His spirit was the driving force behind the development of the company into what it is now, and his staff were treated like family. Fred’s effervescent grin, hilarious sense of humor, and genuine love for others will never be forgotten, and the Nu-Wool family will carry on his legacy even after he has passed away. The visitation will take place on April 11, and the funeral will take place on April 12.
