The journey begins on August 24, 1953, then Gregory Henson  was born to Mary Henson her first born, in Kansas City, Kansas.

Affectionally known as Greg, he spent most of his life living in Kansas City, Missouri. He graduated from Central High School  in 1972. He continued his education by attending the University  of Missouri-Kansas City. He credited his high school guidance counselor Carolyn McNeal for planting the seed for him to push beyond his surroundings.

While attending UMKC, he was a man of many talents. He begin his education career as an art major. His works were included in several art exhibitions. He could also be found on a court playing basketball, on the field throwing a baseball, or giving lessons playing pool. After a few years, he enlisted into the military in 1976.

He was a Staff Sargent for the US Air Force. During his tenure,  he spent time in many places across the country and overseas. He mostly enjoyed his time in the Philippines, Japan, and Korea. Once he got back stateside he settled in Texas and another seed of opportunity would begin to grow.

During this time, with the help of a dear friend, Greg was introduced to his then neighbor Rose Mary Holbert. On meeting Greg, she told him he was going to be her husband, and she was right. On March 18, 1983, the two became one and said I Do, and within their union was blessed with a beautiful baby girl. Greg finished his degree from UMKC and worked for American Capital before placing roots for almost 30 years with the State of Missouri as a Bank Examiner.

Greg always tried to see the best in people. His favorite story in the bible was the parable of the Sower and he would always say, “ the seeds were never bad, it was just placed in the wrong soil. Your environment can have a impact on how you see the world. Always be kind. ”He made it his mission to make sure to take care of everyone he could, as long as he had the right six numbers.

On May 18, 2023 Gregory went to be with the love of his life. He took his last and final breath in this world and begin anew in eternity. He was fully healed, restored, and free of all pain. He was home where his heart desired. Preceding him in death, his wife of 43 years, Rose M. Ferguson and his mother, Mary Ferguson.

His legacy will forever live on by his one and only child, Angela; siblings, Tyrone (Margret), DeWayne, Yvonne, Cheweeta, and Wendell, and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, and friends.

Greg has found true freedom, peace, redemption, and back with his love.
