Obituary

Jack A. Hendricks, age 82, of Milton, Florida, passed away on Friday August 23, 2019, after a brief illness.

Jack was born October 23, 1936 in Pensacola, Florida to Fred W. and Velma L. Hendricks. Jack grew up in Milton, Florida, and graduated from Milton High School, Class of 1954. Upon graduating from High School, he continued his education at Alabama Polytechnic Institute (now Auburn University), graduating in the Class of 1959 with a degree in Business Administration. After college, he served in the United States Navy initially as an enlisted petty officer with VS-30 “Diamondcutters” at Key West, Florida. During his enlisted tour, he was selected to attend Officer Candidate School (OCS), Newport, Rhode, Island, and was Commissioned an Ensign, USNR. Jack served tours with destroyers USS Hazelwood (DD-531), and later USS Kidd (DD-661) as an Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Officer.

After leaving the Navy, Jack continued to serve in the Navy Reserves while employed as Shift Supervisor at Monsanto Chemical Corporation’s nylon plant near Pensacola. Later, Jack attended University of West Florida, Pensacola and was awarded a Master’s Degree of Economics.

Seeking employment closer to home, Jack was employed by the Santa Rosa County School system as a Property Manager until his retirement. Jack was an avid reader and history buff and prided himself in his depth of knowledge in the history of Florida and in particularly Milton and Santa Rosa County. Also, he was a skilled pianist having learned to play the piano from the age of six.

Jack was a devoted member of the Margaret Street Church of Christ, Milton, Florida where he was baptized and attended for many years preceding his death. He loved his Church and serving the Lord, and was appreciative of the many friends he made there.

He is preceded in death by his loving parents, and is survived by his brother, George E. Hendricks (wife Virginia), currently residing in Fort Worth, Texas.

The family wishes to thank the many friends, relatives, and staff at Santa Rosa Medical Center that stood by Jack during his brief illness.

A Memorial Service for Jack will be held in the near future. We will update the website and facebook post when the details have been set.

I always remembered Jack from Margaret street church of Christ. He was always there and rather quiet man. He always spoke and was ready to serve the Lord. I will miss seeing him. God bless you Mr. George in the loss of your dear brother. May you be comforted by all memories you shared. My deepest sympathy. Paula Preston Turner
