Albert Henderson



A kind, loving, and gentle man embarked on his new journey on February 25, 2020.  Albert Ross Henderson found peace in God.  He lived a fulfilling and adventurous life.

Born in Nova Scotia, Albert grew up working hard, while enjoying the ocean, outdoor pursuits, lots of singing and feasting on lobster.  After high school, he graduated with degrees from Saint Francis Xavier University and McGill University, and Presbyterian College.  He served as a minister for several years, then made a career change into commercial real estate.

Albert loved nature and sports.  He was a beautiful skier, accomplished woodsman and hunter, camper, hiker, and above all, a golfer.  He loved to share these passions with family and friends.  He also loved singing and participated in musical groups and choirs.

Albert is survived by his loving wife, Leslie; sons, A. Steven (Pam) Henderson, Alan Henderson, Larry (Jean) Henderson, Stephen (Mona) Henderson; sister, Margaret Schmitt, several grandchildren, nieces, and nephews, and a close extended family.

A Celebration of Life will be held on March 20, 2020, at 7:00 PM at First Baptist Church, 10031 109 St NW, Edmonton.

I admired Uncle Albert all of my life. A warm, kind and generous man, he affected us all with his joyous sense of adventure. There would always be lots of laughter and singing at any social gathering he attended.
My deepest sympathies to Leslie and the rest of his surviving family.

David and Sheila Erickson

Dear Leslie. We were saddened to hear about your loss. One memory that will stand out is our daughter Julie interviewing him for a class psychology project where he discussed much of his life’s details. He was such an open, transparent man who so freely gave of himself. And yes, his love of golf was so evident!

Sheila Dubon

Heaven has gained an Angel! We are so saddened to hear of Albert’s passing. What a kind, fun & special man he was. My fondest memories are when Albert would grab his guitar & gather a crowd to sing together. Those camping adventures years ago are heartwarming memories forever with Albert. He was a man that deserved respect for his principals & honesty. He will be greatly missed. RIP
