Anthony Hensley could light up a room and turn a bad moment into something good, his brother said.
“He’s like a rock star that never played an instrument,” said Raymond Hensley. He just had that type of personality. He took life seriously but enjoyed life to its fullest.”
Anthony Hensley, 37, a Villa Park resident and father of two young daughters, died on Saturday after his kayak rolled over on a retention pond near Des Plaines. Authorities and family members believe a swan that may have been nesting in the pond became aggressive and caused the kayak to overturn.
