Franklin Delano Roosevelt Henderson was born in Chicago, IL, November 5, 1947 to Noy and Esther Henderson, who preceded him in death.

He received Christ as his savior at an early age.

Frank attended Betsy Ross Elementary School and later Inglewood High School, where he stayed until he joined the U.S. Army.  He received his GED while serving his country.

When Frank got out of the U.S. Army, he moved to Baltimore, MD, where he met and married Verona Brown, and to this union three children were born; Franklin R. Henderson, Jr., Derrick M.
