Albert Eugene “Gene” Henderson, 71, of Spotsylvania County passed away peacefully on Wednesday, November 16, 2022, at his home surrounded by family.

Gene was born in May of 1951 in Birmingham, Alabama to William and Patricia Henderson. In 1969, after graduation from Woodlawn High School, Gene joined the United States Navy where he attended multiple schools to become an electrician on the USS Bergall until 1977.  

Gene was an amazing husband, father, and grandfather. He married Judy in Baltimore, Maryland in 1970 and they became parents to Angela in 1972 and Patricia in 1975. After leaving the Navy, Gene traveled with his family all over the country working at Nuclear Power Plants until he settled down with Virginia Power in 1986 where he worked for 25 years.
