James Lee Henderson: My father was born in Danville, Virginia on August 8th, 1935. For many years we had to celebrate his birthday on August 8th and also on the 9th because he was born at midnight. His driver's license states August 9th but his medical records date the 8th. He said they didn't take very good records back then and swears his mothers states the doctor was drunk. A funny story with dad's humor and wit. There are so many things I can share about my father but what really is important is that he was a hard-working Christian man who went to work even sick to provide for his family. He was a husband until my mother was taken away. They spent every day together doing many things they enjoyed together. He was a father to me and my brother Michael Henderson. He was a Grandfather to Amber Lee Pierle and Ashlee Beth Hutchinson. They would spend summers with my parents building birdhouses and having fun at the beach. He leaves behind six great-grandchildren. Adrien Hodgson, Aiden Hodgson, Avery Hutchinson, Boston Hutchinson, Brady Hutchinson, and Alistair Pierle. I am sad to see him leave me behind but I know he is reuniting with my Mother, Brother, Uncle Raymond and with many of his family members who have gone ahead. Love you, Dad.
