Robert “Bob” Hendrickson, age 56 of Springfield, Missouri, passed away at his home on Tuesday, July 15, 2014.  He was united in marriage to Julie Marrs Hendrickson on March 21, 1987. Family was truly his priority, including his surviving wife, daughter, Beth Anne, son  Bobby and wife Jennifer and their two children, Brett and Macy Hendrickson, all of Springfield; mother, Lavada Hendrickson, of Springfield; grandmother, Rheba Eddy, of Danville, AR; sisters, Debbie Foell and Flo Lynn Hathcock, of Springfield, and Rose Cash and Jimmie Best, of  Oklahoma City, OK; nephew, Jamie Hathcock, of Springfield; mother-in-law, Barbara Bullington, of Springfield; and many other loved family members. He was preceded in death by his father, Jim Hendrickson, son, Brett Hendrickson, and father-in-law, Dale Bullington. Bob became a follower of Jesus while growing up at First Baptist Church in Oklahoma City, OK and was a member of Ridgecrest Baptist Church for many years, where he taught children and youth ministries. While outliving a rare cancer diagnosis, he was quick to give credit to Jesus for the many years he was able to spend loving and serving family and friends as a testament to God’s grace. Bob was a local Farmers Insurance agent for 33 years and was proud to own and operate his business alongside his son. He had a passion for the outdoors that he enjoyed sharing with friends and family, especially his love of bird hunting. He felt most “at home” traveling on the open road with those he loved, whether en route to hunting in the Kansas outdoors, an Oklahoma Sooners football game, or an adventure to the mountains. Bob coached countless seasons for his kids’ and grandkids’ teams and was a mentor to many more than just his own children. Funeral services to celebrate Bob’s life will be 11:00 am, Saturday, July 19, 2014 in Ridgecrest Baptist Church, Springfield. Visitation will be 5:00 to 7:00 pm Friday in the church. Burial will follow in Hazelwood Cemetery. Services under the care and direction of Barnes Family Funeral Home, Ozark. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Life Builders Ministries, PO Box 14141, Springfield, MO 65814, where Bob spent years volunteering and showing new friends the love of Christ.
