Ronnie Henderson Obituary

Ronnie Lee Henderson, known as “Smart boy,” was born to the late Sammie Lee and Minnie Drain Henderson on June 11, 1953 in Smoaks, South Carolina. He  entered into eternal life on January 29, 2023 at Colleton Medical Center  in Walterboro, South Carolina.

He played football and graduated from Ruffin High School in 1970 and shortly, thereafter explored his passion as a mechanic, by attending Denmark Technical Institute in Denmark, South Carolina. Upon completing his educational endeavors, he worked both independently and for various companies, within the automotive industry. 

Ronnie joined Springtown United Methodist Church as a child and worked as a school bus driver within the community, as a young man. As a bus driver,  he worked daily with many of his own nieces and nephews serving the capacity as not only their bus driver but older sibling and or mentor. His heart for family was big and he shared a special connection with all of the younger generation within his family. He was a loving and supportive father and grandfather and always made time for those who he truly cared for.                                        

He was preceded in death by his parents; older siblings: Sammie Henderson, Jr., Willie Henderson, Grant Henderson, Daniel Henderson, and Florrie Mae North.

Left to cherish his memories are his daughter: Dr. Porsha Miller; his grandchildren: Vincent Jerrell and Zaniah Jayden Kershaw; three sisters: Flossie Henderson, Florence Shark, and  Flourie Burns; his wife Sallie Miller and twenty-three  nieces and nephews and a host of other relatives and friends.

Our family is thankful and grateful for the  blessing and time that we have been afforded with a great spirit. Take your rest now, for you have earned it. We loved you but God loved you best.
