David Douglas Henderson


David Douglas Henderson
It is with great sadness that the family of David Douglas Henderson of St. Stephen announce his passing, which occurred on Saturday, December 28, 2019 at his residence. David was born in Ottawa, Ontario, the son of Douglas F. Henderson and the late Sarah M. (McCabe) Henderson.

David worked for many years as the Custodian at Kirk McColl United Church. He was a brilliant man, who was able to build and design almost anything. He enjoyed restoring old Mustangs and other vehicles, and was an amateur radio operator. As a lover of nature, David enjoyed vegetable gardening and loved animals, having deer and wild turkeys in his back yard even though he lived in town.

In addition to his father, David is survived by his siblings, sister Joanne Henderson, twin brother Donald, and sister Lynda McVay (John), all of St. Stephen; a nephew, Leigh Stafford; nieces Riannon McVay and Cassie McVay; an aunt, Mary Lou McLaughlin (Donald) of St. Stephen; several cousins; and a special friend Linda Hannan of St. Stephen. David was predeceased by his mother and by several aunts and uncles.

In keeping with David’s wishes, all services will be held privately. For those who wish, remembrances to the SPCA or any charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family. Arrangements by Humphrey’s Funeral Home, 20 Marks Street, St. Stephen. Personal condolences and remembrances may be placed at
