My condolences to the entire Henderson family. I left Canaryville 35 years ago yet whenever I ran into Joe (or Joey as I know him) on one of my visits, he treated my like family. He had a gift for making people feel welcome and important. He was truly one in a million and I'm sure he will be missed by the many people who called him their friend.

At work he was known as The General, or General Joe. Lol!!! Because he was a stickler for proper paperwork. Bosses would routinely ask him for advice on how to complete the paperwork. Took me under his wing on day one and for that I will ALWAYS be grateful. Going to miss him. God Bless and RIP Joe 😇
