Floyd Grant Henshaw, Sr.

February 19, 1934 — October 13, 2021

Floyd Grant Henshaw, Sr. Passed away October 13, 2021 at the age of 87. He was preceded in death by his parents, elder brother, son Floyd Grant Henshaw, Jr, and grandson Thomas Michael Urso. He is survived by his wife of 65 years Ruth Craig Henshaw, sister Dorothy Tilman, and children Frank Henshaw, Peggy Henshaw Tetterton, and Jenneane Henshaw. He was the proud grandfather of 7 grandchildren and delighted grandfather to 11 great-grandchildren. While he worked various jobs throughout his life to support his family, his true calling was farming and he tended his land and animals with the same joy, respect, and gentleness as he did his family. A life-long member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, his family was one of the first converts here in central Virginia and over the course of his life he watched the congregation grow from 100 that could fit in a single chapel to thousands. A visitation will be held Wednesday October 20, from 6-8:00 pm in the Bennett & Barden Funeral Home. Also the family will receive friends Thursday from 10 to 11 am with a service at 11:00 am at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Powhatan Chapel, 1957 Capeway Road. Interment will be private. In lieu of flowers we request that you give donations to the Powhatan Christmas Mother, Powhatan Food Bank, or your local food bank in memory of his life of selflessness and service.
