John loved his summer getaways on the island of Islesboro, ME. For the past twenty years, he spent half a year in Maine where he enjoyed the beautiful views and the serenity of nature. John also loved fishing, art, antiques, travel, and shopping for everything from tools to linens. His home was always a show place and was never short of anything he needed. John was a good friend to many. Friends and family will always remember John for his ability to make everyone feel like they were his best friend. He will be sorely missed.
John was preceded in death by his father Alfred Henderson, mother Aline L. Henderson Ellis, and nephew Timothy Henderson.
