Michael Craig Henson (1982 - 2012)
Michael Craig Henson, beloved husband, son, brother, nephew, cousin, grandson, and friend, passed away suddenly on September 18, 2012.

He was born in Spokane on April 22, 1982, to Cheri Kubu. He was selflessly given to his devoted parents, Vern and Bette (Palmer) Henson, who raised him and his brother, Patrick, in and around Olympia.

He was a graduate of Tumwater High School, Pacific Lutheran University, and the Blekinge Institute of Technology (Karlskrona, Sweden).

Michael's soul soars high because of his generous spirit of giving himself to human rights advocacy, environmental awareness, and dedication to the Rainbow City Band, the Northwest Network, and his Holden family. He was a champion of love, acceptance, and equality. We will all be better people because of him.

Michael was preceded in death by his twin sisters, Diana and Deborah; brother, Christopher; sister, Pamela; and brother, Patrick. He is survived by his husband, the love of his life and soulmate Stephen Nash; his parents; his nephew, Kaeden Henson; Kaeden's mother, Jena Brocious; his grandmother, Wasalea Henson of Homedale, Idaho; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

A celebration of his life was held September 23 at All Pilgrims Christian Church in Seattle. His funeral was held September 24 at Mills & Mills Funeral Home and Memorial Park in Tumwater.

The family would like to thank Connie Burk, the Northwest Network, the Rainbow City Band, and a multitude of friends for their support in our time of need. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Northwest Network of Bisexual, Trans, Lesbian, and Gay Survivors of Abuse, www.nwnetwork.org.
