4/1 Northfield News: Local man’s death investigated

At no time was his loving, caring nature more apparent than when he reached out to those who were trying to kick their opiate addiction. His mother, Sarah Henson, takes great pride in knowing that her son was responsible for getting others into treatment.

Max Henson’s willingness to give extended even after his death Tuesday. As an organ donor, doctors have told the family he can help 40 to 60 others.
