David Ray Henson, known to most as “Dewey,” age 57, of Rotonda West, passed away on Thursday, March 15, 2018 at his Charlotte County residence.
Born on March 25, 1960 in Dallas, Texas to the late Robert and Jeanine Combs Henson, he had been a resident of Florida for 18 years after coming from Vail, Colorado.
Whether it was opening day at Coors Field, a concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, a game at the local horseshoe pit or just anywhere at all with family and friends, Dewey always led the festivities with his quick wit and joyful smile. It was all about his love of people.
Dewey never met a stranger. His gigantic and beautiful heart was open to any and all who were fortunate enough to come into his path.
Survivors include his loving wife of twenty years, Lisa J. Henson of Rotonda West, Florida; one brother: Michael (Sharon) Henson of Colorado Springs, Colorado; one sister: Dana (Jay) Smith of Tahlequah, Oklahoma and several nieces and nephews.
A celebration service is planned for a later date. Englewood Community Funeral Home with Private Crematory has been selected to handle arrangements. You may share a memory with the family at
