    Don was born April 4, 1941, in Sulphur, Okla., to John and Oma (Stringfellow) Hendricks. He passed from this life on October 10, 2012, at his residence in Hurst, Texas.
    He met the former Betty Brown while attending Dougherty High School in 1957. The first time he saw Betty he said to himself, "I'm going to marry that girl." He graduated in May 1959 and married his high school sweetheart on September 26, 1960, in Visalia, California. He worked for Santa Fe Railroad and Teppco Oil Company and retired in 2005. He enjoyed hunting and fishing, carpentry and golfing. He was a kind and gentle soul who touched the lives of all he met. Don's pride and joy was his daughter, Ronda.
    He was preceded in death by his parents; four sisters, Becky Hunt, Oma Lee Hendricks, Dorothy Rubbick and Charlene Hendricks; and one brother, Harvey Hendricks.
