James Henderson Jr.
PITTSBURGH — James Henderson Jr. was born on September 24, 1929, a month before the onset of the Great Depression, as the only child to James and Ida Henderson.
He grew up in Swissvale and was known to friends and family as “Dutch.” He graduated from Swissvale High School and Grove City College and then served for four years in the Air Force during the Korean War, with a year stationed in Korea. He returned to Swissvale and married June MacMillan in 1956.
In 1963, his job with Consolidated Natural Gas in employee relations was transferred from Pittsburgh to Clarksburg, WV, and he and June moved and settled in nearby Bridgeport, WV. Three years later, their only child, Kirk, was born. Jim became active in the First Presbyterian Church and in the Salvation Army and he remained active in the Syria Highlander Bagpipe Band in Pittsburgh, which meant routinely driving a four-hour roundtrip to play his bagpipes around the Pittsburgh area.
For a time, he also taught business classes at Salem College (now Salem International University). Though he was a Pitt season ticket holder when he moved to West Virginia, he quickly became a Mountaineers fan. He also became a Steelers season ticket holder in 1972 and attended many of the great games of the past 40 years, including the Immaculate Reception game. In early 1984, June succumbed to breast cancer.
Jim continued to work for the gas company until after Kirk graduated from high school. He then married Elizabeth “Betty” Horne at the end of 1985, retired shortly thereafter, and moved back to Regent Square, just two blocks from where he lived before moving to West Virginia. He continued to play his bagpipes, he became Clerk of the Session of the Swissvale Presbyterian Church, he volunteered at The Carnegie Museums, and he and Betty traveled much of the world, returning several times to his treasured Scotland.
Jim and Betty eventually moved to Longwood at Oakmont in 1998 and, just a month later, Betty also lost her battle with cancer. In 2000, Jim served as best man when Kirk married Kristin Moul. In the following seven years, he became a grandparent four times over to his beloved and adoring Logan, Amelia, Caroline, and Lucas. For the past decade, he also had a loving relationship with his long-time companion, Joan Siedensticker.
On November 15, 2012, and after a long fight, Parkinson’s took Jim’s strength, but not his spirit or his pride. He never complained, but instead tried to take as much as possible from each day. He is survived by a large extended family and countless friends who will miss his wisdom, humor, and zest for life.
Viewing will be held at T.B. Devlin Funeral Home, 806 Perry Highway, Pittsburgh, PA (www.devlinfuneralhome.com) on Sunday November 18, 2012, from 1-5 p.m. A short service at Devlin on Monday, November 19, 2012, at 10:30 a.m. The service will precede interment at Homewood Cemetery. A memorial service open to all also will be held on December 1, 2012, at 1 p.m. at Longwood at Oakmont, 500 Route 909, Verona, PA.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Shriners Hospitals for Children (www.shrinershospitalsforchildren.org) or to the American Parkinson Disease Association (www.apdaparkinson.org).
