    Our Thoughts and prayers go out to the Hendrickson family in your time of sorrow. Have known Walt for many years through my brother Joe and always thought he was a heck of guy.

    R.I.P., Walt. The pain has been lifted now.

    We are so sorry for your loss. When this happens in our family we need more than human strength. God and his Son can provide what we need. Please review these scriptures : John 5:28-29 “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.”
    Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes,and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

    My thoughts and prayers are with the Hendrickson family at the passing of your loved one.
    Walter held a special place in my heart and always made me smile.
    Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
    Matthew 11:28

    I remember the fun your dad, mother, wife, sister, and I had when Barb and I were living in Michigan and in later years when we would visit. I am just sad that we only stayed in touch by phone and not in person after your sister and I divorced. I will always remember you as a friend and my brother-in-law. Rest in peace Walt.

  5. Miranda Hendrickson, your granddaughter

    Forever & always my most knowledgeable grandparent ❤️ You taught me so many things and were such an inspiration when it came to building things. You always knew how to have a good laugh and reminded me of how important it is to have fun and enjoy life. Love you always, Grandpa. You’ll be missed by so many.

  6. Kim Hendrickson

    ❤️ A Daughters Love ❤️
    Kim loved her Dad unconditionally.
    She faithfully prayed for him every day and wanted him included in all our prayers. That was important to her. She wanted her Dad to be born again and I understand that he made that choice. His decision to do that made Kim happy.
    Her visits with her Dad were always very special to her and usually ended in tears in the car when she had to leave him.
    Kim will miss him so very much.

    Rest in Peace Dad.
    You were a great father and grandfather to my four daughters. After suffering multiple heart attacks and strokes, leaving you with a triple heart bypass, paralyzed on one side, having kidney dialysis three times a week for the past three years, and fought three rounds of cancer, you are now at peace. Daddy, I always loved you and will love you from afar now. I felt our spirits connect the last night you were alive upon waking from sleep, a bright light that flashed in my eyes, I knew it was our love and spirits joining once again, in the spiritual realm, and a quick release leaving me in total peace. You have now joined other family members for a celebration of life and love once again. You were such a gifted and funny man in so many ways, but you had a very soft touch when it came to your grandchildren who loved you beyond words. We will remember all the great times with you, the laughs, bonfires and marshmallows, and the hours listening to you snore in your chair when we visited you. May you always remember, you are forever loved Dad, now rest in peace until we meet again.
