In his spare time, he enjoyed Texas Rangers Baseball, even though they broke his heart at times, and the Dallas Cowboys.  He enjoyed going on cruises and paying the casinos.  On June 12, 2004, he married the former Marsha Lindsey in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Spending time with his grandchildren brought him great pleasure.

Also preceding him in death was a brother, Kelvin Henson.
