He was born Feb. 3, 1932, a son of the late Rev. Cleovis and Zora Hensley.

Mr. Hensley retired from the U.S. Forest Service.

He attended Union Chapel Free Will Baptist Church, as long as his health permitted.

He was a loving father, grandfather, brother, and friend. He loved the mountains, fishing, spending time with his family and watching his grandbabies play and grow.

He touched many people throughout his life, and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

He was preceded in death by his wife: Shirley Hensley, who died Feb. 1, 2007; one brother: James Hensley; and one sister: Edna Faye Ricker.

The family will receive friends from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. today at Doughty-Stevens Funeral Home.

Funeral services will be held at 3 p.m. Thursday at Union Chapel FWB Church. The Rev. Lynn Neas and the Rev. Jerry Hopson will officiate. Interment will follow in Greystone Cemetery.

Active pallbearers will be Ricky Darnell, Marty Darnell, Mickey Hensley, Danny Hensley, Dewey Walters, and Andrew Holt.

Honorary pallbearers will be Ruble Parkins, Laverne Hensley, Bill Dearstone Sr., Dr. Maynard Austin, and the men of Union Chapel FWB Church.
