Archie S. Henderson, 87, of Honesdale (formerly Augusta, MI), passed away March 1, 2020 at home in the loving company of his wife, Judy, of 63 years and his two children.

Born November 23, 1932 in Coshocton, OH, he was the youngest of thirteen children of the late George and Anna (McCormick) Henderson.

He and Judy also enjoyed traveling in their motor home with their beloved Sheltie dog, Missy.
