It is with great sadness that the family of Acree Martin Henderson, known by many as “Hank,” announces his passing on Thursday, March 26, 2020, at the age of 89 years.

He leaves his wife of 67 years, Mary Henderson; daughter, Janet Henderson; son, Jim Henderson and wife, Jan; granddaughter, Courtney Ward and husband Keith; granddaughter, Amy Harris and husband Jackson; and grandson, Andrew Henderson. Hank or “Big Papa” will also be forever adored by his three great-grandchildren, Kennedie and Lincoln Ward, and Wilder Harris.
Hank served in the U.S. Air Force as a flight engineer during the Korean War. After discharge, he worked as a civilian for the Department of Defense at the US Army Transportation Center Ft.
