Philip “Phil” J. Hendrickson, age 97, of Green Bay, passed away peacefully at his home, Tuesday, March 7, 2017. A celebration of his life will take place on March 25, 2017. Phil and his wife, Betsy, who passed away in 2013, directed a significant share of their philanthropic and volunteer service toward Betsy’s (master’s degree) alma mater, UW-Green Bay. Their names are prominent across campus, with the Philip J. and Elizabeth Hendrickson Professorship in Business; the Philip J. Hendrickson Business Scholarship; the Hendrickson Community Center at Residence Life; and more. Betsy Hendrickson was a charter member of the Chancellor’s Council of Trustees and honorary chair of UW-Green Bay’s successful $30 million Capital Campaign. Phil was the former chairman and CEO of Krueger International (now KI). UW-Green Bay editor Sue Bodilly was privileged to spend time with the Hendricksons in 2004 and capture a bit of their story and philosophy of life and giving — they did it together. A celebration of Phil’s life will be held at First United Methodist Church (501 Howe St., Green Bay), Saturday, March 25, 2017 at 10 a.m. A reception in his honor will follow at St. Norbert College’s Hendrickson Dining Room immediately after the service. Phil will be laid to rest next to Betsy with full military honors at Bailey’s Harbor Town Cemetery. Read his obituary.
