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.
