HENDRICKSON, Leif (Lee) Roald

September 14, 1924 – Mossbank, SK
December 17, 2013 – Calgary, AB

Leif (Lee) Roald Hendrickson of Calgary passed away peacefully on Tuesday, December 17, 2013 at the age of 89 years.

Born in Mossbank, SK, he moved to Calgary at an early age, and spent the majority of his life in the men’s wear business, most notable as owner of Coachman Men’s Wear. Lee was a very kind and well-respected gentleman, a generous person of spirit and humor. He was an avid golfer and member of Earl Grey Golf Club since 1949. Lee loved to walk the fairways with his pals known as “the slippery seven”.

Lee will be remembered and dearly missed by his two sons and daughters-in-law, Cliff and Valari and Jae and Brenda; as well as by four grandchildren, Kirsten, Stacey, Laura and Erik; five great-grandchildren, Taylore, Shelby, Ivy, Finn and Damon; and his wonderful sister Sylvia of Canmore, AB.

A family service will be held this summer at the Hendrickson homestead in Saskatchewan. Forward condolences through A special thanks to the Bethany Care Centre for providing our father with exceptional care these past few years.

In living memory of Lee Hendrickson, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek Chapel, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: (403) 256-9575.

    Saying goodbye to Uncle Leif leaves me with a heavy heart. He had such a “flavorful” soul, and the memories of his escapades will never be forgot. From a child to my adulthood I admired his compassion for life and I know he will find my dad (his brother Trygve), and together they will putter away all the cow patties in heaven. Cheers!

    Never will we forget the wonderful times at 6328 Crowchild Trail, particularly the crazy Christmases when Cliff and Jay’s kids were growing and the house was full. Santa’s appearance was mandatory, in whatever red garment was available and once, even shaving cream used to create his white beard! I can still see Leif over Mom’s (Sylvia) shoulder discussing how the norwegian meatballs, and the Lutafisk should be cooked, those dishes served late in the evening with delicious lefse. Leif’s forte was his prime rib which was smeared with his ingredients (still listed in my recipes) and was regularly basted with beer from the bottle he was drinking. The best prime rib I have and ever will, taste! What a wonderful uncle – taking us in his covertable when we were all visiting Trygve & Erna’s farm, his horse bets and gambling, and so many fun times when he visited the Goeres in Harvie Heights after a golf game with my dad Ray.
