Michael Hendrix -- Byron

September 17, 2018

Michael O’Connor Hendrix, 18, of Byron, passed away on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2018.

Michael was born on Sept. 19, 1999, in Rochester, to Shane and Jackie (O’Connor) Hendrix. He attended school in Byron. When you could not find Michael at school, he was at the farm with his cows. Michael worked at G-Flowing Springs Farm in Eyota. Farming was his passion. Michael enjoyed hunting, fishing, trap-shooting and spending time with his family. Family and friends were very important to him. Michael was the type of person that made sure he told everyone he loved them before he left, especially his mom and dad, even leaving early for work at 3:45 a.m. in the morning.

Michael is survived by his parents, Shane and Jackie; a sister, Shannah (Adam) Badger; his little buddy nephew, Kyler; and his “hey little girl” niece, Alayna; grandparents, Patrick O’Connor, Bonnie O’Connor and Donna Hendrix; his fur babies, Rocky, Charleigh Girl, Gracie; and many other family members and the most amazing friends a young man could have.

A Celebration of Life for Michael will be at 11 a.m. Monday, Sept. 17, at Community Celebration Church, 27337 County Hwy. 34, Kasson, with Pastor Steve Larson officiating. Visitation will be from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16 at Byron Funeral Home and one hour prior to the service Monday at the church. Burial will be at Mount Hope Cemetery in Kalmar Township.

Memorials are suggested to the family.
