Joseph “Joe” Cleveland Henderson, 89, of Jasper, passed away on Friday, February 7, 2020, at St. Vincent’s East.

Family will be receiving friends on Monday, February 10, 2020, from 2 until 3 p.m., at Kilgore-Green Funeral Home. Service will follow at 3 p.m., in the Kilgore-Green Chapel. Howard Thompson will officiate.

Joe was a loving father, grandfather and friend. He was a proud Navy veteran, retired from Norfolk Southern Railroad and an avid golfer, who played two to three times a week with his buddies at Horse Creek and often in Gulf Shores. Such an avid golfer that the Daily Mountain Eagle did a feature story on him for being the oldest golfer at the course. If you knew him, you know he fiercely loved Jo Ann, their babies, Alabama football, going to the casinos and golf. He will be missed by many.

He was preceded by his wife, Jo Ann Key Henderson, parents, R.C. and Clara Henderson; siblings, Jackie Marks, Jim Henderson, Gerald Henderson, Betty Humphreys, Ray Henderson and Ronnie Henderson; in-laws, Girles and Adell Key; and sister-in-law, Doris Phillips.

He is survived by his daughters, Debra Hadder (Lowell) of Jasper, Cathy Reid (Michael) of Ashville; grandchildren, Adam Hadder (Sheena) of Vestavia, Amanda Adcock (Jason) of Cullman, Heath Graham (Jessica) of Lacey Washington and Haley Sanford (Jerry) Springville and A.J. Bush (Megan) of Springville; great grandchildren, Carolina, Alyssa, Braylon, Marley, Skylar, Briley Ann, Addie Grace, Levi, Hayes and Logan; great great grandchild, Huck; sisters, Ann Jones and Peggy Duke and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to St. Jude’s Hospital or Tunnel to Towers.

ADD A MEMORY

My heart breaks for Debra and Cathy. I have lots of childhood memories of Mr. Henderson. I remember when he went into an old field across from our house to look for my doll that a stray dog had run away with. I remember riding in the back of the Carmen Gia to go to Jasper and watch his brother Ronnie play football. I remember that he used to have two TV's on at the same time so he could watch two different sports and I remember going to the Henderson house when I got sick at school and my parents were at work and no one was there but Mr. Henderson. I went to sleep on Debra's bed but I knew he opened the door from time to time to check on me. When I tell people I had a great childhood it is partly because of my memories of Mr. and Mrs. Henderson and of my friendship with Debra. God bless you all and give you peace.
