John Edwin Hendrick, Jr., age 73, of Monticello, Arkansas passed away, on Saturday, May 11, 2024, at Dermott Nursing Home in Dermott, Arkansas. He was born March 22, 1951, in Hardinsburg, Kentucky to the late John Edwin Hendrick, Sr. and Virginia Dandy Hendrick. Ed was a United States Marine and served in Vietnam. He graduated with an associate degree from Vo-Tech School and became a certified teacher of welding. He moved on to work in the auto industry as a welding inspector. He was a member of the Crossett First Baptist Church men's Sunday Class. Ed enjoyed training his labrador retriever, Kate, and participated in field trials in Kentucky. When Ed moved to Arkansas six years ago he became active in the Felsenthal Hunting Retriever Club. He loved the memories made with the members and the experiences. He was an active member of the Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church and he worked with local animal rescues and assisted when needed.
Ed is survived by his daughters, Emily Hendrick and Ashley Brody and husband Michael; grandchildren, Sophia and Benjamen Burch; step-grandchildren, Emily, Rheed, Maci, and Jill Brody; two brothers, Michael Hendrick and Cleveland Hendrick; and a host of family and friends.
The family wants to thank all who helped provide assistance with Ed's care, and transportation to and from his treatment centers. Arkansas Hospice was a great comfort and a big thanks to Dermott Nursing Home for the great care for Ed. It was a rewarding experience to have such all-around care.

There will be a visitation from 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. prior to the memorial service. The family asks in lieu of flowers that donations be made to the Wounded Warrior Project, P. O.

    If I rolled out of bed at 4am or 10 am there was a Bible verse from Ed to start the day. That says a lot about the character of this fine man and friend. Will miss his call every Nov10th just to say “happy birthday, marine!”

    A great friend growing up together, playing football and learning about life and how to live. He had a great passion for life and a very competitive spirit. If you ever got into a fight, you wanted him on your side.

    Ed Hendrick is a great figure in my life. He was kind and generous to me as a 17 year old boy that did not have a direction in life. Ed offered to teach me to weld and even took me to the classes every week.
    He will be greatly missed.
    I owe Ed Hendrick for the man I am today.

    Ed helped me start my job at Dana Corp. In Hopkinsville Ky. Believe me it wasn't easy teaching me the art of welding. But Ed did and help me be employed there for 27 years. I'm grateful for that. R.I.P my friend.
