Clyde Gerard Henderson, a resident of Baton Rouge and native of Prairieville, passed away recently. He is survived by his brothers David Ross Henderson, Michael Brandt Henderson and Kevin Richard Henderson. He was preceded in death by his father, Joseph (J.P.) Henderson; mother, Nina Atkinson Smith; and older brother, Russell Joseph Henderson. Clyde attended school at Dutchtown and graduated from Catholic High of Baton Rouge in 1972. He then went on to receive several degrees from LSU. Clyde worked as a carpenter and was a member of Local 1098. He also worked as a high school teacher, high school baseball coach, football referee, managed a youth baseball league, and as a cattle farmer. For most of his life he was an avid sportsman. You may have seen him walking, jogging or cycling around the city of Baton Rouge or on his way to some of the surrounding communities or maybe even New Orleans. But, his real passion was coaching youth baseball. He was a particularly good hitting coach. His teams were competitive both on a local and a national level, winning a national little league championship. He positively impacted the lives of many young Baton Rougeans both in athletics and in life. With his help and mentoring, many of those young people have become outstanding citizens and contributors to their communities. He will be missed by many. Visitation will be held Monday April 9th from 5 pm to 7 pm with memorial service to begin at 7 pm at the downtown Rabenhorst funeral home 825 Government St.
