HENDERSON, John Bennett (1941 - 2007) John passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, on Thursday, June 7, 2007. Beloved husband of Penny for 40 years, much loved father of children Elizabeth (Steve) and Brian (Sonia) and proud, loving grandfather of Isabelle and Claire. He will be greatly missed by his sister and brothers: Joan, Jamie (Marilyn) and Peter (Margaret) and brother-in-law Mike Wise (Carmen) and their families. We all feel he left far too soon. John was born and raised in Ottawa and earned degrees in Geology from Queen's University (B.Sc.) and The Johns Hopkins University (Ph.D.). He enjoyed a long and fulfilling career at the Geological Survey of Canada in Ottawa as an unrepentant field geologist. He was the author of many professional articles, maps and monologues, and made a significant contribution to the understanding of Precambrian geology in the area north of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. He and Penny also enjoyed traveling, the outdoors, and spending time at the old stone farmhouse that they were restoring. John was a quiet and kind man, known for his integrity, wit and wisdom. He felt fortunate to have so many friends who touched his life and came to visit during his illness. A celebration of John's life will be held at "The Farm" on the afternoon of June 23rd (69 12th Concession Road, Township of South Frontenac, near Westport, Ontario). If desired, memorial donations may be made to the Queen's Geology Field Studies Endowment Fund (Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario K7L 3N6), the Palliative Care Outreach Program ( or 613-723-1184), or the Ottawa Rehabilitation Centre through the Ottawa Hospital Foundation ( ).
