Glen Allan Hendrickson was born in San Diego, California, on June 12, 1966, and died in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, on March 20, 2020. A memorial service will be scheduled with Pastor Isaac Mwangi officiating at the Christ International Fellowship (CIF) Church in Oklahoma City.
Glen was an adoring husband, loving father, and devoted son and brother. Married to Faith Kagunda Hendrickson, he was the father of three sons: Allan “AC” Hendrickson, 17; Alex Maina Mwangi, 14; and Skylar Kagunda Hendrickson, 2.
The youngest of six siblings, Glen was raised in Spring Grove, Illinois, and graduated from Richmond Burton Community High School. He attended college, including classes at Oklahoma City Community College. Glen was best known throughout the 1990s as an extremely accomplished software developer, producing a number of video games, including Chessmaster 5000, Pool Champion, and NCAA Final Four Basketball. He performed the voiceover work for Expert Pool, a trick-shot training course, and he is credited with developing the popular Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing application.
He cared for his mother in the last years of her life while nurturing his own young family with Faith. Glen was especially proud of his oldest son, AC, and his involvement in the national office of DeMolay International. Glen was an expert pool player with exceptional hand-eye coordination and enjoyed cooking for his family.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Geraldine Underwood Hendrickson and his brother, Chris Murphy. He is survived by his wife, Faith, and sons Alex and Skylar, of the home; son AC, of Stillwater; his father, Glen Hendrickson, of Gary, Indiana; his brother Allan Hendrickson, of Oklahoma City; and his sisters, Sandy Poplin of Moshtin, Wisconsin; Cindy Moore of Rockford, Illinois; and Anita Duray of New Lisbon, Wisconsin. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Christ International Fellowship Church (designate Oklahoma City), the charity of one’s choice, or to help support the family.
