Ted was predeceased by his father and mother; his siblings, Raymah Leslie, Albion Henderson, Eugene Henderson, Faye Lambert and Paul Henderson.  Survived by sisters, Beryl Pike and Dorothy Pendleton and brother, Milford Henderson.

Ted would like to express his sincere appreciation to his niece Karen Fox and her family for their devoted attention to his care and needs in his final years.  He would like to acknowledge a deep and abiding friendship to Mrs. Leona Randall and her nephew Gary DeLorey of Ripples, NB.
