    How fortunate we have been to admire and enjoy John in our medical, social, and friendship lives for 70 years! His steady, gentle, often wry good humor was always present through the minor and major disasters of living life. John's bountiful wit,...  more

    Hi Sue - Jordan, Beatrice and I are sending all our love and condolences your way. Your dad was one of a kind...except in the sense that he was obviously cut from the same cloth as his older brother. This was both a surreal and fortunate revelation for...  more

    For me, "Uncle John" Henderson was my wife, Lisa's, always calm and supportive, witty uncle whose dry humor you sometimes had to listen to very carefully in order to get it. One example that I still remember is when he told us about an elderly...  more

    Uncle John was my west coast family. Although I met him when I was a pre-teen when he came to visit us in Connecticut, I really got to know him and Jo when I moved to Palo Alto for graduate school. I also got to know Susan and Janet then. They always...  more

    I knew John through various connections. My favorite, however, was serving with him for many years as an Advisor to the Alton and Dorothy Higgins Fund, a Donor Advised Fund at the San Francisco Foundation. It had been established by one of his former...  more

    Such a gentleman, and a true healer. How I wish I go back in time so he could be my doctor today.
  • Kathleen Kelly
    Dr. Henderson was our family physician for years, but I didn't realize how truly blessed we were until my parents' health began to decline. When my dad was dying, he was hospitalized at CPMC; five years later, so was my mom. Dr. Henderson visited both...  more

    I first met John and Jo as a Stanford freshman coming to the west coast for the first time and 3000+ miles away from home. They (and Heidi, their dog) both were always welcoming to their home, and I appreciated the family and support. But at that age,...  more

    Your dad was a wonderful person, and I have been so fortunate to have had the opportunity to get to know him these past few years when visiting San Francisco. I only wish we could have spent more time with him over the years, but it was so nice to make...  more

    We spent many entertaining visits with Uncle John at The Sequoias over the past several years. Although we loved him dearly for his own amazing and wonderful self, we all openly admitted that his uncanny resemblance to our dad, his older brother Sid who...  more

    Sue,
    Although I only met your dad a time or two, I could tell how much he loved his daughter, and what a kind, loving soul he was. I remember during the time when my father was sick he was there to give us advice about his care. The photos you shared...  more
