Abraham Mark Bendorf, age 20, of Madison unexpectedly passed away on 02/14/2021 at home. He was born on 07/27/2000 in Madison, son of Mark Bendorf and Jennifer Bendorf (Groneng). Abraham graduated from West High School in 2019. He was learning a trade through his father's painting business and planning on growing the business to include his siblings one day.
Abraham enjoyed spending his spare time with his many friends or hanging out gaming. When he was 10 he started playing Minecraft online and still was friends with some of those guys to this day. He progressed from Minecraft to GTA, CSGO and Mortal Kombat. He also loved camping and learning outdoor survival skills. He was looking forward to going on a backpack camping trip with his mother in June and jumping off the cliff at Cave Point Park into Lake Michigan with his family this summer.
Abraham was loved by all who knew him; with his quick wit and engaging personality, he easily made friends. He had a "wise beyond his years" soul. He was loved and he will be missed.
Abraham is survived by both of his parents and his three siblings, Sam, Esther and Moses Bendorf. His paternal grandparents, Joan and Erv Bendorf. His maternal grandfather David Groneng. His aunts and uncles along with two cousins. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother Carol Groneng, whom he will be buried next to.
