David Robert Hendrickson died unexpectedly of natural causes on July 15, 2021. He was 31. A graduate of Maple Grove Senior High and University of Minnesota Mankato, he was most recently employed in logistics for RUAN Transportation in Otsego, MN.
In his short life he united many people through his humble and quiet spirit, kind and sweet heart, and loving offering of time and talents. He sought to see the good in all, and he will be sorely missed, but now we gently give him back to Our Creator and Heavenly Father knowing that we shall be reunited in eternity someday because our faith assures us that families can be together forever.
David is survived by his loving parents, Duane and Jan Hendrickson; his closest and dearest friend and littlest sister, Kathleen Nicole Hendrickson, older siblings, Brandt Aaron Slivken (wife, Michele), Leah Slivken Novak (husband, Aaron), niece and nephew, Eliza Frances, 12 and Charlie Brandt Novak, 10, and Erik Dustin Slivken (wife, Sarah Stepanski) and nephew, Étienne; grandmother, Phyllis Dickinson; aunt, Vicki Hendricks and two nieces, Samantha and Julia Hendricks; aunt, Lynn Kloberdanz (husband, Gary Kloberdanz); cousins, Angela Feddersen, Tara Gallardo, Brett and Jason Kloberdanz and their families; aunt, Dawn Pegis (husband, Jon Pegis); cousins, Philip, Peter and Stephen West and their families, and Michael and Jason Pegis; cousins, Nancy Lass (husband, John) Benjamin and Jordan Lass (wife, Lindsey and baby Locklan); his cousins in North Carolina – and all his extended family along with friends and co-workers who mourn the loss of a good man. David loved each person he met with the same inviting spirit!
