 David M. Hendrix, 50, of Crescent City, FL died unexpectedly Saturday, March 31st in Chattanooga, TN. He was born January 12, 1968 in Fairbury, IL to Nancy J. (Postle) and David F. Hendrix. David is preceded in death by his father David Hendrix; grandfather, John Postle; grandmother and grandfather, Cecil and Lucille Hendrix; and uncles, Alan Huff and Jeffrey Hendrix. David’s loving family includes his children Jack and Vivi Hendrix of Lake Como, Florida, mother, Nancy Hendrix of South Bend; sisters, Allison Hendrix and Meredith Isenberg (Tim) both of South Bend; nephew Rowen Isenberg of South Bend; and grandmother, Nina Postle of South Bend. Other survivors include numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
David was a devoted and loving father to his two children Jack (9) and Vivi (15). He was a graduate of Mishawaka High School (85) and attended Illinois State University where he was a member of Sigma Chi Fraternity. He was an avid outdoorsman and fished at every opportunity. He shared his love of fishing with his children. He loved reading, technology, animals and restoring his 1964 GMC pickup truck with Vivi and Jack. Dave was funny, kind hearted and not often at a loss for words. Dave lived most of his adult life in Georgia and recently Florida. He worked as a Territory Manager at NA Williams Co, Inc / NAPA for the past 8 years and was an asset to the company. Our family loved David with all our hearts and will miss him every day, but we take great comfort in knowing he is now at peace with loved ones.

Hey Dave,
Remember that day after summer school health class when you invited me over to hang out? The days when it was cool to wear shoes with no socks. I took off my McGregor high tops off and stunk up your bedroom. You sprayed my feet with Lysol, dumped baby powder in my shoes, and threw them outside! Thank you for befriending a skinny geek that summer of '83. Such a sincere person with true character, you will be missed buddy.
