Burt Winston Hendrickson, Vice President of Engineering/Digital Imaging of Adobe, passed away at age 55 on January 20, 2018 at 1:00am.
Winston was born on April 17, 1962 to Caroline and Bert Hendrickson, in Laguna Beach, California. He graduated from UC Riverside with a degree in Computer Science and attended Stanford University Graduate School of Business. He began his career at Apple Computer in 1988 and continued his legacy at Adobe for 18 years.
Winston was a beloved dad, respected leader, and passionate photographer. He had a love for sports photography that started with his daughters’ softball games, and it ultimately provided him with the opportunity to photograph many NFL games including the Atlanta Falcons and the Miami Dolphins, his favorite teams. Off the field and out of the office many knew Winston as a humorous, laid back, humble, and down to earth kind of guy. Winston loved to travel with his family, especially for his daughters’ softball tournaments, and visiting unique places to capture spectacular photos. Some of his favorite subjects were wildlife, nature and sports.
Winston leaves behind his wife of 25 years, Teresa and their three daughters Danielle, Brittany and Lauren, his nephew Stephen who he treated as his own son, his grandson Grayson, his mother Caroline, his brother Will. He is survived by his brothers’ in-law Steve & Danny Estrada, and two sisters’ in-law. He also leaves behind 9 nephews, 13 nieces, and 5 God children.
A private celebration of life for Winston will be held for close family and friends. Memorial gifts in Winston Hendrickson’s memory can be made to https://www.crowdrise.com/o/en/campaign/in-honor-of-winston-hendrickson
