Truck Driver’s Training Program. He was a self-taught auto mechanic, working on his dirt bikes and his Ford trucks. In true Hendricks form, it was not uncommon for him to help the less fortunate and repair friend’s vehicles for nothing. His family was the most important part of his life and he was very close to his Mother and Dad. In his teen years, he enjoyed riding dirt bikes with his youngest brother Trent, who was always at his side. He was especially fond of his sister Terrie and all his life he looked up to his brother Todd. Joyful times for Tim was when he was with his Dad and brothers, either hunting or fishing. He worked many years with his oldest brother Tom, learning all about the carpentry trade. Tim also loved his family time with his nieces, nephews and cousins scattered around Michigan.
