Jacob "Jake" D. Henning, 18, of Owensboro, went home to the Lord, July 11, 2022. He was born May 13, 2004, in Elizabethtown. Jake was known for a quick smile that could light up a room, and a bad joke that make you shake your head. He inherited his love of all things with a motor from his Dad, and was constantly by his side. His employers, Moore & Moore Trucking, took him under their 'hoods' and taught him much more than mechanics. Jake became a grease monkey from head to toe and loved to leave "his mark" on everything he touched. He was to be a Senior at DCHS, but had an entrepreneurial heart, and had already started a lawn service. But Jake will be remembered most as the best big brother anyone could ask for. He would have gone to the ends of the Earth for Maddie, Luke and Brewer. Jake's final act of kindness was to give the gift of life through organ donation. Long Live the Burnout King.
Jake is survived by father, Danny (Nikki Smith-Henning) Henning; mother, Molly Tabor (Richard Crask); sister Maddie Henning; brothers Luke and Brewer Henning; grandparents, Charlotte Henning, Aloysius Henning, Joey (Phyllis) Tabor, and Lynn Tuell; great-grandmother Joann Tabor; uncles, Barney (Lori) Henning, Jody (Tiffany) Tabor, Patrick Tabor, aunt, Hannah (Tyler) Merrell; Cousins, Joseph (Lauryn) Henning, Kathrine Henning, Natalee Tabor, Aubrey Tabor, Lily Tabor, Morgan Tabor, and Emily Tabor.
