Robert James Henderson

Robert James Henderson, 67, of Palm Desert CA, formerly from Torrance CA, unexpectedly went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, May 9, 2012. Bob was born on June 29, 1944 in Los Angeles to Harold and Myrtle (Turner) Henderson. He was married to Donna (Thistle) for 46 years and worked for the Torrance Fire Department for 33 years. In addition to being a beloved son and loving husband, Bob was an adoring father to Jeff, Jon, and Jill (Berry), a supportive father-in-law to Alicia, Andrea, and Mike, a doting grandpa to Kelley, Vanessa, Jenna, Bo, Victoria, Luke and Bret and a brother to Karen and Linda (deceased in 1979). After retiring from the Torrance Fire Department as a captain in 2001, Bob spent endless hours coordinating and teaching hazardous material classes around the state of California. He also enjoyed golfing and socializing with his countless number of friends in the desert. Many referred to him there as the honorary "Mayor of Monterey Country Club". Bob was best known as a man of integrity who passionately loved Jesus Christ. A celebration of Bob's life will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. at King's Harbor Church in Torrance. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to any foundation supporting breast cancer research. "Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of eternal life." Timothy 6:12.
