Bob was born April 14, 1948 in Humphrey AR, to James Robert and Bertha Mae Henderson. He was raised in Michigan City, IN, by Willie M. and Bertha Mae Hammonds along with his four siblings. He never failed to be an amazing son and a dedicated and inspirational big brother.
He graduated from Isaac C. Elston Senior High School, in 1967 where he ran track and cross country. He also played basketball for Elite Youth Center and participated in community activities throughout his childhood.

After receiving an honorary discharge, he moved to Detroit Michigan and worked as a Laboratory Technician and Nurse at Southwest Hospital. He loved sports, enjoyed shooting pool, barbecuing, traveling with family, and hanging out with friends having a good time.
Bob departed this life on September 3, 2021 in Aperion Care Arbors of Michigan City. He was proceeded in death by his parents, James Robert Henderson, Bertha Mae and Willie M. Hammonds; one sister, Renee Adams; one aunt, Nancy Worthy and a nephew Jarvis Baker.
