The daughter of the third person in Arkansas to die from covid-19 has identified her father publicly as Terry Henderson, 73.
Henderson died Wednesday evening at Baptist Health Medical Center in Little Rock, according to Rhonda Henderson Mullins of the Memphis, Tenn., area. His death is the second among the members of Greers Ferry Assembly of God Church in Greers Ferry, coming after the death Tuesday of Bill Barton, a 91-year-old member of the church who was a door greeter there.
In a Facebook post Thursday, Mullins said her father thought he had the flu and "that he would just fight through it" as he's done before, and refused to see a doctor until Mark Palenske, pastor of Greers Ferry Assembly of God, tested positive for the virus. Palenske's was the first among the tests of those in the congregation to return, the pastor noted earlier this week.
Terry Henderson's wife also had the virus, but is recovering and will be released from the hospital in the near future, Mullins said.
Mullins shared the information about her father because she wanted others to know the danger of the virus.
"I want his death to be a wake-up call for every one of my friends and family and everyone they know," she wrote. "Please don't let his death be in vain."
