** DUE TO RECENT HEALTH CONCERNS, THE CELEBRATION OF LIFE FOR ALBERT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE **
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.
