June 15, 1962 - March 25, 2020
Gregory Lynn Hendrix, 57, lived his entire life on Rosehill Road in Nauvoo. Greg passed away March 25, 2020, from complications of a stroke.
He will be remembered for being a "Superman." Greg was paralyzed in a car wreck in 1998. Since that time, he has lived his life without any movement. It brings a whole new meaning to the bible verse "Be still and know!" Greg always believed someday he would get up from his wheelchair. God has always been faithful to meet his every need.
He has gained his new body and is strolling through heaven with his mother, Irlen Jean Hendrix, and his grandparents, Herral and Mae McCullar Lewis and Rosie Hendrix.
He leaves behind a devoted family including his father, Blanton Hendrix; children, Buddy Hendrix and his wife, Jennifer, Rachael and her husband, Jon Garrett, and Eric Hendrix; grandchildren, Brooks Hendrix, Adalyn Garrett, Sarah Ann Hendrix, Melanie Hendrix, Eliana Garrett, Jackson Garrett and Brenden Hendrix; and siblings, Talmadge Hendrix and his wife, Kim, and Karen and her husband, Bentley Alexander.
He also leaves behind many other friends and family members, including Cathy Crump, Bobbi Jo Odom Hendrix and Marty Bridgemon, along with his nursing staff who made his life feel simple, Melissa Wilkerson, Shannon, Sharon Cummings, Jessica Bennett, Hailey Walker, Makayla Youngblood, Halley Gaddy and Martha Tucker.
Pallbearers will be Marty Bridgemon, Andrew McCay, Jon Garrett, Bentley Alexander, Jasper Odom, Evan McCay and Eldridge Lathum.
The family will receive friends Saturday, March 28, 2020, at noon at Collins-Burke Funeral Home. Funeral services will follow at 1 p.m. in the Collins-Burke Chapel. Burial will be at New Hope Holy Church of Christ Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers Greg's request was for donations to be made to New Hope Holy Church of Christ, 3911 Rosehill Road, Nauvoo, AL 35578 or to the Alabama Chapter of Paralyzed Veterans of America.
