Alan Mills waved goodbye to Wimbledon after 23 years as tournament referee.
Mills disqualified Henman in 1995
Mills, nicknamed "Rain Man" because he ordered the covers on when rain stopped play, was well known for his clashes with John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors.
The Lancastrian also disqualified Tim Henman from Wimbledon in 1995 after the Briton smashed a ball in frustration at the head of a ball girl.
The former amateur player was presented with two commemorative gifts following the men's singles final on Sunday.
Chris Gorringe has also retired from his duties as chief executive of the All England Club.
His position has been taken up by Ian Ritchie, formerly vice president of Associated Press Television News.
