Paul Hendrickson, 79, began his next adventure with Jesus on September 16, 2020. He gracefully endured his long struggle with liposarcoma cancer with the support and love of caring medical professionals, friends, and family.
Paul’s passions in this life were centered around his relationships, traveling, Colorado backpacking, bicycling the country, educating and mentoring others. His understated, mischievous sense of humor and joking manner always brough out laughter in others. He was one of the most capable people and there wasn’t anything he couldn’t figure out how to fix or build.
Born in Winchester, Indiana to Lee and Gene Hendrickson, he grew up as an Indiana farm boy and graduated high school in Bradenton, Florida.
His achievements include:
Bethany Nazarene College graduate
Oklahoma University, PhD, physics
Mid-America Nazarene University Physics Professor and Department Chairman
College Church of the Nazarene member
Involvement with Focus Seminars of Kansas City
He is survived by his loving family: Wife; Pat Hendrickson, Son and daughter-in-law; Brian and Deanna, grandchildren; Evan, Andrew and Karly Hendrickson, Daughter; Cindy Hendrickson, Brother; Bob Hendrickson and Stan Osborn, Stepmother; Evelyn Hendrickson and brother-in-law and sister-in-law; Bob and Sherry Murray.
