NORTH KINGSTOWN – James R. Henderson was a voracious reader, dedicated gardener and a grower of brilliantly-colored amaryllis, the dramatic houseplant with the tall stems and trumpet-like blooms.
After he retired from the U.S. Navy with the rank of Captain – his tours included flying out of Quonset – Henderson and his wife, Daphne, retired to the north end of town, near the East Greenwich border. He sold real estate, doted on his three daughters and hung out with buddies who shared his enthusiasm for airplanes.
