Obituary

Marion Franklin Henderson, Sr. age 73, of Rison went to be with his Lord on July 25, 2023, after a long battle with end stage chronic kidney disease, which led him to have to take dialysis for the last three years of his life. He was born July 24, 1950 to Marion Raburn Henderson and Charlie Mae Parmer Henderson in Kiosco, Mississippi. Later moving to Pine Bluff, where he was raised and received his education at Watson Chapel.
