Elliott (Bobby) C. Hendrickson was born September 4, 1949 to Rae and Millicent Hendrickson - the second of three children - in Watford City, ND. He was raised on the family cattle ranch and attended school in New Town, ND.
On February 14, 1973 he and Cyndi Mayer were united in marriage and to that union a beautiful daughter, Jessica, was born.
Bobby balanced his younger years at home by helping his Dad and Uncle with farming and ranch work while still making time for his many friends in high school. After graduating, he worked as a supervisor in the oil patch. He enjoyed the work and discipline it taught him.
Bobby loved his hot rods and motorcycles. A special one was an Oldsmobile Cutlass that his buddies would tell him they could hear him coming into town from five miles out! When he moved to Lincoln, he had a Riker 3-wheeler that he very much enjoyed taking spins on with his buddies in Bismarck/Lincoln.
“He was also an accomplished drummer and when I’d go up to visit him and our Mom, I could hear him on his set downstairs and thought he had a music CD playing until I realized it was him on his drums!” -Sheila
“I’ve never known a time without Bobby in my life, grew up around him from day one. He was my cousin but more like a big brother to me, he was always there if you needed someone to talk to, confide in, or just a kind smile of empathy and support. I’m really going to miss him.” -Jerry
“Best friend a man could have. Bobby had a great sense of humor, his joke timing was great. Bobby would have a mischievous smile on his face while ringing his hands before he would bust out in laughter after everyone else was laughing. He will always have a big part of my heart and memory. Love you forever” -Terry
A fond memory of his nephew Lynn was when Uncle Bob shined up his red Firebird just so he could take it to his prom. That was pretty special and just how uncle Bob was.
He was also quite the jokester and him sticking out his tongue afterwards made it even more hilarious! Bobby was truly a “give the shirt off his back” type of guy who loved his family, spending time with his cousins and friends, and he dearly loved his faith. Fly high bro!
Elliott is survived by his daughter, Jessica (Jay); granddaughter, Kathryn; grandson Connor; great-grandson Silas; sisters, Collette (Bill), Sheila; nieces, Robin, Angela, Shannon; nephews, Virgil, Lynn and very many dearly loved relatives.
He was preceded in death by his parents Rae & Millie; ex-wife, Cyndi and great-niece, Skylah Mae.
