F. Lee Hendrickson

 If you had the privilege of interacting with Lee Hendrickson, your life was forever better because of him. Lee has been described by many as kind, friendly, positive, strong, active, witty, spiritual, supportive and an example to all. His firm handshake was intimidating and tender at the same time.
 
   F. Lee Hendrickson was born on January 19, 1937, in Pocatello, Idaho to LeRoy and Pearl Hendrickson. He grew up in Cleveland, ID and later moved to Preston, ID where he spent the remainder of his life. He and his wife, Maurine, were married on May 27, 1957, in the Logan, Utah Temple. Later, they were blessed with two daughters, Julie and Jamie.
 
    Lee was a prominent leader in every area of his life. Lee began his career as a police officer in Preston, Idaho, and he courageously served as president of the search and rescue unit. Later on, he was employed by the State of Idaho Department of Highways for 35 years where he worked as the Foreman. After retiring, Lee served on the Preston City Council and was elected Mayor for two terms. He had a deep affection for his community and especially enjoyed throwing out Bit-O-Honey candy during the Famous Preston Night Rodeo parades. Even in his later years, he could be found at Stokes ensuring the town was running smoothly.
 
   Lee’s dedication to a life of discipleship was admirable and inspiring. He loved serving the Lord, and it was easy to feel our Savior’s love through him. In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he graciously served as Elder’s Quorum President, Ward Clerk, Bishop, High Councilor, Counselor in the Stake Presidency and Stake President. Lee and his wife, Maurine, were also called to serve in the Logan Utah Temple Presidency for three years with President Vaughn J. Featherstone.
 
   Outside of work and church meetings, Lee enjoyed hunting in the mountains where he sought out deer, elk, moose and bears. His garage is decorated with antlers, and many of his kills are listed in the Boon and Crockett Big Game Trophy Animals Record Book. He also had a passion for fishing, flying planes, scuba diving, waterskiing, snowmobiling, motor biking, four-wheeling, and practicing karate, but good luck getting him on a dance floor!
 
   Lee passed away May 22, 2024, in Logan, Utah. He is survived by Maurine and his daughters Julie (Bob) Winn and Jamie (Russ) Purdy, 6 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren who all adore him. Lee is preceded in death by his parents and siblings, Velna Swann and Ralph Hendrickson.
