Early Tuesday morning, January 3, 2023, Chad Hendricks passed away unexpectedly at the young age of 55. He leaves behind his three children; Adam Knuth (Brittany Knuth), Mika Hendricks (Aaron Thrasher) and Tabitha Young (Brett Young). Beloved son of Donna Bergamashi and Pappy Nick Bergamashi. Cherished brother of Glen Hendricks. He will be missed by his niece Amber Hendricks and her children, along with many friends and loved ones.
Chad had many jobs throughout his life, most of them involved welding and building, but his most favourite job of all was being a dad and Papa. He had the uncanny ability to always make you smile even if he himself wasn’t smiling. He always came prepared with a joke or phrase to get you to laugh and see the bright side of things. Cooking and all things food related was another passion of his, especially when it came to cooking on a barbecue! Some of his favourite memories were his time spent camping where he got to take his resourcefulness to another level and make his own fun…even when it rained for half of his camping trip.
He was loved beyond words and left his imprint with everyone he ever encountered.
"We think about you always, we talk about you still. You have never been forgotten, and you never will. We hold you close within our hearts and there you will remain. To walk and guide us through our lives, until we meet again."
Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to WELLAND FUNERAL HOME, CREMATION AND RECEPTION CENTRE. Keeping with Chad's wishes, cremation has taken place. Memorial donations made to The Centre for Addiction and Mental Healthwould be appreciated by the family.
