SOUTH BEND - On January 25, 1995 in South Bend, IN, Barbara Patton-Smith and Algerine Henderson III were blessed with a son, Shawki Rashad Henderson. Mr. Henderson attended Washington High School where he displayed his athletic abilities on the basketball team. He was a mama's boy at heart and family came first. Shawki was a hardworking cook with East Bank Emporium Restaurant in South Bend, IN.

Mr. Henderson enjoyed spending time with friends and family, creating memories of laughter and joy. Music was a focal point in Shawki's life - he listened to it, danced to it, recorded it, and used it to share inspiration with the world.

He also leaves a host of aunts, uncles, and relatives to cherish his memory. A Celebration of Life will take place on Saturday, July 21, 2018 at Laymen Chapel CME, 303 S.
