As shared beautifully by Dr. Michael Coleman--

As many of you know, Bob Hendricks passed away recently.  We were all touched by his own loss of his partner Bobbie Ray and his open sharing with us of  both the love and grief he felt.  I wanted everyone to know that his family tells me that Bob was cremated and those he loved best will take him to Mt. Shasta and that special place along the McCloud river where he left Bobbie Ray.  

I have copied his tribute to Bobbie Ray.  It applies no less to him.

These are the words spoken at this place for Bobbie Ray: from Requiem a poem by Robert Louis Stevenson, Under the wide and starry sky, Dig the grave and let me lie. Glad did I live and gladly die, And I laid me down with a will. This be the verse you grave for me; "Home is the sailor, home from sea, And the hunter home from the hill."

Bob and I used to draw cars in study hall. We were both car nuts in high school. Bob's dad worked for Chrysler and at one point was driving the Chrysler Turbine experimental car. They gave me a ride in it. I remember looking under the hood and being completely mystified.

I lost track of Bob after West. He majored in Industrial Design at KU. We reconnected in Facebook a few years ago. He had relocated to Boise where his brother lived and had sold his very cool beautiful early Porsche 9 to a guy who lives outside Paris. He was a friend and a very good guy.
