We were so very sorry to hear of John’s passing. He was such a nice guy and we have fond memories of him both from church and Chris’s little league baseball games. Sending prayers for your family to have many sweet memories.

Dear Hensley Family,
My prayers are with you in your loss. When my son, Jordan Houser, was playing little league baseball at the same time as Chris, our family spent a lot of time together on various area ballfields and had the pleasure of getting to know Mr. Hensley then. May God comfort you as only He can as you mourn his death and celebrate his life, and may warm memories sustain you in the days ahead.

John and his family attended elementary school with me (old Stuart’s Draft Elem). We didn’t see each other once we went to different high schools until John registered, years later, for an EMT class I was teaching. He was a great student and fun participant in class and he gave selflessly in volunteer organizations in Augusta County.
Prayers for peace to John’s family.
