Peter G. Henderson, 55, of Tipton, Iowa, passed away at home on Friday, February 17, 2017. A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, February 25, 2017 at the American Legion Hall in Central City, Iowa from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm. Condolences may be shared at www.fryfuneralhome.com.

Pete is survived by his parents, David and Wilma Henderson of Central City, sons, Adam (Megan) Henderson of Marion, Erik Henderson of Tipton, daughters Hollee (Jeremy) Roszell of Tipton, Michele (Lee) Henderson of Marion, Gina (Cody) Zoss of Adel, IA, grandchildren Emily, Ava, Kingsley, Konrad, and Kilian, siblings Danny (Marie) Henderson of Ryan, Kathy (Kevin) Storla, Marion, Phillip Henderson of Leandro, CA , several nieces and nephews and his beloved pets, his dog Ozzy and his cat Harriett. He was preceded in death by his grandparents.

Pete was born July 13, 1961 in Longbeach, CA, the son of David and Wilma (Middle) Henderson. He was raised on the family farm in Central City, Iowa, graduating from Central City H.S. in 1979. Immediately following high school he proudly served in the US MARINE CORP being honorably discharged in 1983. Pete married Rhonda Coghlan on August 18, 1984, in Cedar Rapids. They later divorced. Pete worked in the Heating and Cooling field for several years. Later he worked in construction and held many handyman jobs. He was an incredibly hard working man and was very talented with his hands.

Pete was an avid outdoorsman. He loved to fish, Morel mushroom hunt and deer hunting. He was also an active frisbee disc golfer in the Cedar Rapids area.

Pete was at his best in the company of small children. It was then that the playful/goofy part of his personality would appear. He would do whatever it took to make a baby smile or a toddler giggle. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

Memorials can be made to the family.
