From The Daily AstorianNov. 27, 1925 — July 3, 2016

Surrounded by family, Hubert (Hugh) Hendrickson died peacefully in Seaside, Oregon, on July 3. Hugh’s life was a witness to his deep faith in God. Through his example, he inspired his family and all who knew him to look for good in others, love unconditionally, make a priority to serve and pray regularly for family and friends, and volunteer in the community.

Born in Astoria on Nov. 27, 1925, Hubert was the only child of Sylvia Anderson and Carl Elmer Hendrickson. Carl died from a residual war injury before Hubert was born, so Sylvia moved with Hubert to Fern Hill to live with her parents. When Hubert was 7, Sylvia married Cameron Larson, a local business owner, and moved to Seaside.

In 1943, Hubert graduated from Seaside High School, and would later be inducted into the Seaside High School Hall of Fame in recognition of his high school and career accomplishments. After high school, Hubert attended Oregon State College before joining the Navy. He was selected for electronics school, and at 19 was assigned to maintain the electronic equipment for a flotilla of landing ship tanks in the Pacific. Following World War II, Hubert returned to OSC, graduating in 1950 with a degree in chemical engineering.

On Sept. 2, 1950, Hubert married Mae Eileen Hill in Astoria. They raised their three children in Longview, Washington, and then in Federal Way, Washington, following a move in 1973. During his 38-year career at Weyerhaeuser, Hubert obtained a patent for using bark fiber in molded plastics, and helped develop new business and energy technologies based on wood byproducts.

In 2001, Hubert and Mae lived out their dream of retiring to Arch Cape, became active at St. Catherine’s Episcopal Church in Manzanita, volunteered in the community, enjoyed gatherings with neighbors and graciously hosted friends and family at their home. Hubert was an active Rotarian for more than 50 years and loved to travel, visiting more than 40 countries with his wife and close friends.

Hubert was preceded in death by his dear wife of 64 years. He is survived by his children, Mark (Mary) of Bellevue, Washington, John of Los Angeles, California, and Leslie (Greg) Copeland of McMinnville, Oregon; and his grandchildren, Stephen and David Hendrickson, Kelly (Josh) Merrick and Corey and Kacie Copeland.
