It is with great sadness that the family of Donald E. Henderson announces his passing on Saturday, April 10, 2021 at the age of 90. We are left with great joy and comfort knowing Donald was called by our precious Lord after a long period of love for his family, friends, God and service to his country. He was taken with a warm smile on his face looking forward to being with his loving and devoted wife, Obedulia (Dulia) once again in heaven.

He will be lovingly remembered by his six grateful children including Linda Leonard (David), Donna Kovich (Tom), Donald Henderson, Jr. (Norma), Anthony Henderson (Randolph), Jean Henderson, and John Henderson (Denise).

He greatly admired and loved them all.
