“Mick” (Michael Wayne Henderson-Hunter) of Sisters passed away May 21, 2019.

Mick deeply loved his family and friends, which will forever be his legacy.

Mick was dedicated to enriching his community through heartfelt care and concern for each person he served. His capacity for compassion was innate and endless; he dedicated his life to bringing joy to others through his infectious laugh, warm smile and loving embrace — best hugs ever!

If there ever was an individual who could bring out the best in people, it was Mick.

Mick loved teaching; he was a living example of integrity. He adored horses and relished life on the farm. He was passionate about classic cars and enjoyed any opportunity to bring people together to share in his enthusiasm for hot rods.

Mick is survived by the love of his life, Susie; buddy and father-in-law Dick; grateful children Tracy, Michael and Matthew; beautiful granddaughters Brittany, Katlyn, Madison and Emma; distinguished grandsons Andrew, Lucus, Dyllan, Skyler and Thomas; remarkable great-grandchildren Tristan, Waylon, and Paisley; 11 cherished brothers and sisters, Sandy, Deloris, Dennis, Barb, Judy, Ken, Don, Barry, Barb, Tom and Mary; treasured daughter-in-law Shelly; and respected grandson-in-law Casey.

Born on August 31, 1946 in Dallas, Oregon, Mick was raised in Fairview and eventually settled in Sisters. He honorably served his country in Vietnam and spent most of his career as a leader and manager in the steel industry in Washington and Oregon.

Mick was preceded in death by his step-father, Robert Hunter; mother, Loraine Hunter; father, Keith Henderson; sister, Glenda Hunter; and infant brothers, Timothy and Stanley Henderson.

He will forever be remembered as the rock in the lives of his family and friends.
