Obituary of Charlie Morris Hendricks, Jr.
Please share a memory of Charlie to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Charlie Morris Hendricks, Jr., passed away unexpectedly on April 17, 2023, at CJW Medical Center located in Richmond, Virginia. At the time of his passing, he was 74 years old. His family is deeply saddened by his sudden death. "Charlie Morris", as he was affectionately known by family and friends, was born on February 8, 1949, in Cumberland, Virginia. He accepted Christ at an early age being baptized and worshiping at his longtime family church, Petersville Baptist Church in New Canton, Virginia. He attended public schools in Cumberland, County Virginia, and graduated with the class of 1967. Shortly after graduation he was sworn into the United States Navy and served aboard the U.S.S. Columbus seeing duty in the Mediterranean Sea. The ship visited numerous ports such as Naples Italy, Athens Greece, and Valletta, Malta. Once back stateside in 1970 he completed his enlistment and was Honorably discharged at the rank of Seaman First Class. Shortly thereafter he began working at the United States Postal Service where he proudly served in multiple roles before retiring in 2005 after 35 years of dedicated service. Charlie Morris is survived by his son Jason Hendricks (his wife Shana, two daughters; two granddaughters Laila & Lauren). He was predeceased by his siblings Rosa Hendricks Evans, Barbara Hendricks Woodson, brother Willie "Duke" Hendricks, mother Ruby Woodson Hendricks, and Father Charlie Morris Hendricks, Sr. He is loved and forever remembered by his sister Nellie Blanton (her husband Lynn) and Ruby Jones (her husband Jerry). He also leaves behind a host of loving nephews, nieces, cousins, and friends. Charlie Morris had an unwavering love of people, a magical way with words and a green thumb many could be jealous of! Leaving a lasting impression on everyone and everything he encountered. Never one for meeting a stranger, he was quick to strike up a conversation and before you knew it, it was as if you had known him your entire life. Among many things he will be most known for is having a kind heart to the very end as he sought to help many who were less fortunate than him even at his own expense. Thank you for all you touched, and for all you've done, as you will forever be missed. "It's been a long day without you, my friend And I'll tell you all about it when I see you again. We've come a long way from where we began. Oh, I'll tell you all about it when I see you again When I see you again." – A See You Again, W.
