Jim was born on August 23, 1939 to James Albert Henderson and Bernice Miller Henderson in Mt. Olivet, Kentucky and passed away on Monday, April 4, 2022 in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Jim was a resident of Keithville. He was married to the love of his life, Sandra Henderson, for almost 60 years. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Jim mentored many of the boys in the neighborhood throughout his life. He was the "fatherly" figure that taught them many skills and how to be a good man. Their home was the place to "hang out" as Jim and Sandra raised their own children.
Jim is preceded in death by his parents; and son, Kenneth J. Henderson. Left to cherish his memory is his wife, Sandra; sons, James Henderson, Jr. and wife, Ilene, and Jeffrey Henderson and wife, Shannon; daughter, Joni; five grandchildren, Christian and wife, Erica, Haley and husband, Colton, Christopher and wife, Faith, Dillon and Angel; five great-grandchildren and one more on the way.
The family would like to express special thanks to all our family and friends that gave us love and support during this difficult time. It is appreciated more than you will ever know.
