Tom passsed away,via a freak, accident while traveling on the PA turnpike northeast extension approximately 1976 or 1977.Tom and a close friend (Steve Santoro perhaps (also deceased for other reason unknown to me)) were traveling to Poconos to stay a family cottage for the weekend.They pulled car over on turnpike for Tom to 'relieve' himself in a very dark spot along the highway.Tom stepped over guard to get off road while friend remained in vehicle. After an extended period of several minutes, driver got out of vehicle to look for Tom who was not seen and did not respond to voice calls.Driver could not locate Tom & eventually called for help. Police arrived and found that Tom had tripped over or fallen after stepping over guard rail, rolled down long & steep enbankment apparently banged his head &/or knocked himself out and was found dead/drowned in shallow stream of only a couple inches deep.I was home from college when this happened and heard the news that 'Tom Henderson' had died on the news. To confirm it was 'our' Tom Henderson, I called a Henderson relative who confirmed it was in fact our classmate. Tom & I had been friends since elementary school so this incident weighed heavily on my mind at the time.
