(Henderson) Vicars of 26 years; his children: Wade Vicars, Sherie Bennett (Derek “the little Mexican”), Erica MacMillan (Jesse), Jason Findley (Katie) and Cheyenne Findley (Greg); grandchildren: Katelyn, Kaylee, Erika, Jade, Jolie, Tommy & James, Chase and Robbie; brothers David (Alice) and James; as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.
