It is with sadness and a heavy heart that I mention the passing of our teacher and my close friend Paul Hendrickson.
I will never forget how we became friends. He was a great man! I still recall the day I was doing my job interview to our school and Paul was sitting in a commission together with another two teachers. It seemed like I had no chance to pass but the last question for me was to mention my hobbies and interests. So when I came up with my foregoing experiences in coaching football I think that was the moment, when Paul decided to hire me. The reason was that he planned to enroll the school football team to local competition but didn’t have any good coach. Well what a coincidence. I guess that there’s something about the saying: “Sport draws people together.”
We have lost a great guy. A modest and caring individual, direct and up front in his approach, kind of a “what you see is what you get” type of guy.
We will forever honor his memory and never forget Paul.
