David Lee Henderson

David Lee Henderson, 73, of Owensboro, passed away on March 1, 2023 at home after a long battle with cancer. 

David was of the Catholic faith.  He was preceded in death by a brother, Jimmie Ray in 2001, his father, Bill in 2007 and his mother, Mary in 2022. He leaves behind his wife of 53 years, Jennifer, and five sons - David Lee Jr. and wife Heather of Georgetown, KY, Leon and wife Beth of Goodlettsville, TN, Brian and wife Katrina of Hendersonville, TN, Johnny and wife Sarah of Louisville, KY and Wesley and wife Brittany of Evansville, IN.  Fourteen grandchildren - Cameron, Peyton, and Mariesa; Atley, Ellen, and Mason; Olivia, Bella, Matthew, DJ, and Nathan; Emma, Ellie, and Owen. Three great grandchildren - Oliver, Aracelis, and Shiloh. And one sad little grand dog named Huck.

David retired from Alcoa Warrick Operations after a career spanning more than 25 years. He loved sports and coached his sons in baseball and basketball as well as helping coach women’s softball. David also enjoyed golf and pickleball with family and friends. A true neighbor David lent a hand when called on, day or night. He and Jennifer were faithful members of Blessed Mother parish and passed on their faith to their sons and grandchildren. 

God invited David for the last year of his life to carry the Cross with His Son.  David bore his suffering from cancer with faith and courage and died in the first week of Lent. He was a wonderful husband and father and will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
