In memory of Brad Hendrickson

Dunwoody High School Coach Brad Hendrickson passed away. Friends, family, coaches, & students gathered at the Paw on the DHS track to remember and celebrate the life of Coach Brad Henrickson. We  shared memories and tributes, and held a moment of silence.  There was also a team run in Coach Hendrickson’s honor.

These words are from Coach Hendrickson's wife, Danielle --
“There are no words that can describe the loss that is felt with the passing of my husband, Brad Hendrickson.  The outpouring of love and support from all those near and far is a testament to the man he was. To know him meant to know pure goodness.  He loved everyone and was at your side the moment you needed.  He fought his battle with cancer in the same way he lived his life- with strength, a smile, love and determination to be the best person he could no matter what the challenge. He was a dedicated teacher, encouraging coach, loving friend, husband, brother and son, but most of all the most amazing human being!
He loved his job, his students and the Dunwoody community. Teaching and coaching gave him so much joy. Our family will be having a private service, but he has asked the following of all that loved him:"

In lieu of flowers -
Perform community service/project in his name or go for a nice run/walk enjoying the great outdoors together with those you love.
Make Donations to one of the causes/programs close to his heart or one close to yours-

This is one of Brad’s favorite quotes that he lived out in his life.  Just being with him made you want to be a better person.
Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.-John Wesley”
