George F. Henderson

June 28, 1937

May 3, 2024

Early on Friday, May 3, 2024, George Henderson, of Carnegie, Pennsylvania, went into the loving arms of his savior, Jesus, and his honey bunny, Lorraine. He was her treasured husband for almost 64 years, missing her every day since her passing in 2022; George was a loving father to his children Luann, Donald (Kathy), Steven (Gretchen), Randy (Shari), Kevin (Michelle) Henderson, Victoria (Thomas) Randolph; beloved uncle of David (Marci) Dunn, and Debbie (Arthur) Kline; was brother to the late Francelle Henderson Dunn; and was devoted son of the late Frank and Estelle Henderson. He was also a devoted and loving grandfather (Grandpa/PiPa/Pap/Uncle George/Georgie) to Justin, Ashley, Sarah (Rian), Alyssa (Bobby), Rachael (Jonathan), Joshua, Henry, Aurora, Wesley, Olivia, Avery, Preston, Nathan, and Desmond; and great-grandfather/Grandpa Georgie/Great Uncle George to Jayce, Cayleb, Caylea, and Wyatt. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews and countless cousins and friends.

George was a happily retired auto body man and insurance adjuster and had a passion for cars and boats his entire life. He loved old music, sunshine, travelling, and sunny places but his true passion was his family and friends.

His ‘dash’ could not all be written in one obituary but is bursting at the seams with the better part of a century of being a devout Catholic, doting husband, wonderful dad, proudest grandfather, and most loyal friend. George knew everybody everywhere. He would be that person who could travel across the US and Europe (true story!) and run into someone he knew. He loved to tell everybody what to do all the time, where to go, and how to get there. Nieces lovingly called him “Uncle GPS.”

If you visited him and Lorraine, he would immediately offer a snack and beverage, and would be disappointed if you declined. He walked everyone to the door when leaving his home whether it was at their family home on Battleridge Road, at Cloverleaf Estates, down the l-o-n-g hallways and elevator at Vandadium Woods, or most recently, in McMurray Hills Manor until just a few months ago. And Georgie would stop a conversation to tell you to look up at the moon and stars.

Georgie and his love, Lorraine, provided love, friendship, encouragement, celebrations, funds, respite, vacations, vehicles, meals, donations, and the like to more than could be counted, not to mention being a taxi driver whenever asked. His smile was infectious, and his clear blue eyes will be so missed.

He named his last boat “No Regrets” and that is how he lived his life.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the SZAFRANSKI-EBERLEIN FUNERAL HOME, INC., where family and friends will be received on Tuesday, May 7, 2024, from 3-7pm at 101 Third St., Carnegie. The Knights of Columbus will hold a service at the funeral home at 6:30pm. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held in St. Raphael the Archangel Parish, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church on Wednesday, May 8, 2024, at 11 am. Following mass, Burial will take place in St. Joseph Cemetery. There will be a celebration of life gathering including lunch for family and friends afterwards.
