Evan Hendricks

A message from our Chapter President: It is with great sadness that I regret to inform you that Evan Hendricks passed away on Tuesday, August 6th. Evan was a true friend who constantly showed his enthusiasm for his dogs and support for all his fellow NAVHDA Chapter members in their training and testing efforts. I share with all of you our fond memories of our friend and our sympathies and best wishes for his wife Linda. As you know, earlier this year, Evan and Linda demonstrated their complete dedication and extraordinary generosity to advancing our NAVHDA Chapter’s mission by donating his custom outfitted trailer complete with virtually every sort of dog training and testing equipment imaginable. The generous spirit of Evan and Linda will never be forgotten by our Chapter and will live on every time we train and test. Please note in the picture of Evan featured that he is proudly wearing his Southern Tier Chapter jacket.
