Kenneth Grant HENDERSON passed away on 6 MAY 24, while in care at the Edmonton General
Continuing Care Center.  Joan and the family are grateful for their care.

Grant's loving wife cared for him right until his passing.  There were many smiles, kisses, and
dances shared between them.

Grant was predeceased by his father, Robert Brett HENDERSON (03 JUN 11 - 60 MAY 13) and
his mother, Victoria Eileen Fairbairn HENDERSON (nee LANGFORD)  (04 MAY 14 - 65 JAN 05)..

Grant was blessed with eight grandchildren.  Nick HENDERSON, Jessica FERGUSON (nee
Asher HATHAWAY, Sophia HENDERSON.  He also had one great grandchild, Castor FERGUSON.

Grant was born in 1940 in Wiarton, Ontario.  Grant was a "jack of all trades."  He could
fix a car; repair an appliance, as well as any plumbing, electrical or heating problem.  He had an uncanny
ability to "Think outside the box" at times.

Grant married Audrey, and they had two sons, Darryl and Cary.

After a period of time, they separated, and Grant met Joan EMBERTSON.  Together they had
the two girls, Charlene and Sheena.  Life was not without its difficulties, and Grant and Joan
separated.  They reconnected in 2018, and quickly became good friends.  Grant asked Joan to marry
him, but the potential bride, wasn't sure that she was ready.

Unfortunately, a cancer diagnosis, Alzhleimers, and Dementia, landed Grant in continuing care.  Joan's
love and care for Grant only grew during this time.  As a reflection of their love and mutual forgiveness,
they got married on 23 OCT 14, in a simple and intimate ceremony.

Grant did not stop smiling the entire afternoon.  One of the things he tried to do was to dance with his

  1. My father and I were never separated, and I never stopped loving him. I was all he had for most of my young adult age. My father was very smart, funny, empathetic, loved socializing, walking, and fixing things. He saw the beauty in things that most people were quick to ignore. He loved garage sales, pick n pull, and spending time with me enjoying a cold one, while laughing at silly past memories. My dad would literally give his last 5 bucks to someone in new, even though he needed it himself because he had no food. He went above and beyond for his family and friends.
    It’s very unfortunate and disheartening to lose someone so special to you. Your Dad, your husband, anyone! But this hits hard for me the most. Even though I was a pain in the butt sometimes, my dad was always there. Everyone in his home town loved and respected him. Your memory will forever be with all of us, especially me. But I know you’re watching over me and I stay comforted in knowing that. I love you Grant Henderson
