The son of Jim Henry, the deputy to Gov. Bill Haslam and the chief of staff, was found dead on the front porch of his home on Lower Gallaher Road in Roane County Tuesday morning. The location is identified in funeral arrangements as Henry's family farm.

James M. "Jimmy" Henry Jr., in his early 40s, apparently died of natural causes, said Roane County Chief Deputy Tim Phillips. His body was discovered by someone who worked with him, Phillips said. No autopsy was conducted.

An obituary being prepared Wednesday morning said Jimmy Henry "loved farming, Jeeps, old cars, politics and the outdoors."
