We Remember a Hero
My Dad and Jedidiah’s Grandfather, U.S. Marine Corporal Lucket (Lucky) Lamar Henderson, went to be with our Lord on April 6, 2015. He was 91 years old. He took with him 17 pieces of hand grenade, embedded in his back since the age of 17, from Iwo Jima. A war which also made him a hero and a survivor. He was more than that though, a recipient of the Purple Heart, father of five kids, builder on the Alaska Pipeline, single-handedly built a house, and the man who put up with my crazy Aviation aspirations.
The funeral service was Friday, April 10, 2015, at Jordan Funeral Home Chapel in Kosciusko, Mississippi, and burial followed in Parkway Cemetery. Rev. James Burrell officiated.
