Last summer, City Council and City Staff wanted to recognize Mr. Hendricks for his contributions to Auburn Hills and the lasting legacy he created. Leonard was known to park a distance away from his office on the municipal campus each morning and walk to the building as a means of getting a little exercise. The pathway he utilized each and every day, unbeknownst to him, was affectionately referred to by the staff as Leonard's Lane. So in order to honor him, a park bench was installed along the pathway and a sign with his name on it was affixed to the decorative lamp post alongside that same pathway. We are thrilled that Mr. Hendricks was able to enjoy the honor bestowed upon him last summer as it will continue to be a lasting tribute to his sincere dedication and devotion to this community.
Everyone at the City of Auburn Hills extends their sincere condolences to the family of Leonard Hendricks. His efforts here will not be forgotten and will forever be recognized.
