Henderson Williams was born November 14, 1942 to the late Luke Williams and Ethel Jackson Williams. Henderson was called to rest on Tuesday night, November 12, 2019 at the age of seventy – six (76).
Henderson was best-known as “Scoot,” a nickname given to him by his parents from as early as a little boy.
Scoot was baptized in 2005 at the Potter’s House (Dallas, Texas) under the leadership of Bishop T.D. Jakes. He rededicated his life to Christ on September 25, 2019, under the guidance of Reverend Joseph Franklin of Mount Triumph Missionary Baptist Church of Boyce, Louisiana.
Scoot was a renowned hunter and fisherman, King of nicknames, and a comedian. One of his favorite fishing spots was Black River, and he knew every hunting season like he knew his name. He took pride in making sure that his nephews were the greatest fishermen and hunters on this side of the Earth.
Scoot was married to Geraldine Boss-Williams for over thirty-five (35) years, and from this union 2 daughters were born.
He worked as a farmer and “airplane mechanic” for Chandler’s Flying Services, under Donald Chandler for over thirty (30) years. Donald was not only his employer, but he became a lifelong-friend and brother to Scoot.
He was preceded in death by his parents Luke and Ethel Williams, three brothers, Charles Lee Williams, Calvin Williams, and Arthur Williams, and two sisters, Geraldine Williams and Claudia Williams.
Scoot leaves to cherish his memories: two daughters, LaTondra Coleman (Rodney) of Dallas, Texas and Karen Williams of Boyce, Louisiana; one son, Thomas Patterson of Lena, Louisiana; four sisters, Nancy Bener of Boyce, Louisiana, Dorothy Texada (Robert) of Boyce, Louisiana, Mary Williams of Alexandria, Louisiana, Ethel Douglas of Boyce, Louisiana; five grandchildren, Kimberly Brown (Gerry), Brussell D. Rosenthal, Jr., Jeremy Matthews, Michael Jones II, and Rayna Coleman; two great-grandchildren, Alanna Brown and Audre Brown; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and friends.
