David Hendrix, loving husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, and friend, passed away peacefully on August 9, 2013, surrounded by his devoted family.

David was born in Lansing on May 18, 1955, to Urwin and the late Margaret Hendrix. In addition to his father, David is survived by his wife and best friend of 34 years, Linda; his sons, David (Jenelle) and Michael; daughter, Jenny; step-daughters, Kim Emerson (Dave) and Allison Mohr (George). He leaves behind his eleven adoring grandchildren Layla, Sonny, and Sullivan Hendrix; Colin, Emily, Gracin, and Kalyn Emerson; Audrey, Morgan, Liliana, and Luca Mohr. He was a caring brother to Debbie Lehmann (Dave), Mark, and Tom Hendrix (Karen). He was preceded in death by his mother and his daughter, Jill.

David graduated from Lansing Catholic Central High School. Professionally, he worked for the State of Michigan Department of Treasury for nearly 40 years. He enjoyed Michigan State University sports, the Detroit Tigers, and traveling. He was an avid runner, reader and golfer. His greatest joy was spending time with his family. David will be remembered fondly by all who knew him for his kindness, courage, warm sense of humor, and optimistic outlook on life. Though he left us way too soon, we will carry him in our hearts forever.

    I had the pleasure of working with Dave as a client here at Comerica Bank. He was always willing to assist me with questions or directions I might have needed. He was easy to talk to and will surely be missed. My thoughts and prayers to his family.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to Dave’s family. I worked with Dave in 1980 on the night shift in the Treasury mail room. He was a good guy and the best supervisor. My desk was only a few feet from where his was and I remember the group of us were always laughing and joking about something. Now he is with our Lord in heaven.
