Samuel Lee Henderson

December 1, 1953 ~ July 28, 2017 (age 63)

Samuel Lee Henderson, born to the late Thera Mae Henderson and Jack Johnson, was called upon by God early Friday morning, July 28, 2017.

Sammy, as he was so preciously called, joined Holy Matrimony with Virginia “Faye” Henderson 43 long years ago.  Together they raised 7 children and 3 grandchildren.

Samuel has been a long time resident of Jackson County, but before here, he and Faye lived in Titusville, FL.

He worked in construction, he loved it and was good at it!  He and that hammer became the best of friends, but nothing could compete with the love he had for fishing. If fishing could pay the bills, that would have been his full time occupation.

Samuel is preceded in death by his sister Sylvia White and son Jayson L. Jolley.  He leaves behind to cherish his loving memories, his wife, Virginia Faye Henderson, his children, Gwen Watford (Joseph) of Graceville, FL, Tracy Martin (Liz) of Parrish, FL, Bobby Deriso (Edith) of Cocoa, FL, Samuel Henderson Jr. (Kara) of Liberty, MO, Thera Mae Allen (Thomas) of Titusville, FL, LeManuel Allen (Rachel) of Fayetteville, AR, Davianna Sadousky (Christian) of Washington State, Khneka Brown of Titusville, FL and Andre Brown of Kansas City, MO.  His sister Rose Mary Dixon of Apopka, FL, two brothers, Raymond Henderson (Felicia) of Florida, and Willie White (Ruby) of Fayetteville, NC.  A host of grands, great- grands, nieces, nephews, cousins, loving in-laws and friends.

May you forever rest in the arms of God and forever in our hearts.

Love Always,

Your Children

I’m too young to really understand your absence now, but I’ll carry on the bond we shared the rest of my life because I know you loved me and I love you always, Poppa!

Love you,

Your baby



In the words of my dear husband, our dear father, grandfather, uncle, cousin or friend…………..until we meet again, BULAH-BULAH!
