March 17, 1929 – December 24, 2020
Alistair McLeod Henderson passed away peacefully in Burnaby, BC in the late hours of Christmas Eve, 2020. Ally’s memory will be cherished by his loving family: daughters Laura Dawn Henderson (Brian Holitzki) of Vancouver, BC and Shelley Adele Henderson of Kelowna, BC; and granddaughter Brooke Sheona Ouellette of Kelowna, BC. He is also survived by his son Neil and his brother Terence, as well as numerous nieces and nephews, grands and great-grands.
Born in Saskatoon, SK, Ally was the youngest of 10 children born to Donaldina and Andrew Henderson, who had arrived in Canada from Scotland in 1912. He was a proud Scottish descendant and cataloguer of family tartans. He was also a driven athlete who played junior football with the Saskatoon Hilltops for their first three seasons.
Ally’s love for the theatre and singing had him travelling through Canada and into the United States. This was his passion, bringing him recognition in Kelowna’s theatre community. He later became musical director with the Barbershop Chorus and the Sweet Adelines. One could always find him singing a tune or two, even well into his later days.
Grateful thanks go to Ally’s caregivers at St. Michael’s Centre.Obituary
