We lost a friend last night. Jon Henderson passed away after a 9 year battle with cancer.
I met Jon through boulder free radio where he and his brother David played some fantastic hippie shit music and blues. I saw him many times over the last several years playing gigs, at Conners and, the last time, with he and David at the Boulder Theater a few weeks ago.
He was happy, and he never ever complained, although we sometimes gave him a hard time about how his hair grew back all curly after particularly onerous cancer treatments.
The last thing he did on this earth was visit Conners for a few beers with friends, something he dearly loved to do.
These last words from Jon:
"Oh well, I was lucky to have made it this far. And, I put up a pretty damn good fight. No crying....."
And then in his own writing:
You will be sorely missed Jon.
