Jerry George Hedrick, Sr.

July 8, 1934-April 18, 2020

Jerry was born to Samuel Lee Hedrick, Sr. and Callye Lucille Miller-Hedrick. He was born in McCall’s Chapel, (Allen) OK. Jerry is preceded in death by his siblings: Samuel Lee Hedrick, Jr. James Charles Hedrick, Sr., Billye Ruth Ragsdale, and Leana Jeanne Staggs. He is survived by brother Donald Dean Hedrick, Nelle Rose Horner, and Pamela Joy Jones.

In 1955, he married the love of his life, Nelda Jean McKinnerey, who preceded him in death, in April 2016. They spent many wonderful years together in ministry and sharing the gospel of their Lord and Savior. They have 3 children: Farrah Lucille Dever, Jerry (Bud) George Hedrick, Jr. and their youngest, who preceded Jerry in death, Samantha Gean Lozano.

Jerry was the proud grandfather of 8: Max Hedrick, Andrew Dever (deceased), Tim Holcom, Katie Doherty, Joshua Holcom, Alysse Garner, Jon Holcom, and Nathan Hedrick. In total, he had 19 great-grandchildren whom he loved very much.

Jerry worked for Magma Copper Company in San Manuel, Arizona, for 30 years, and when he left to go into ministry, Jerry and his wife Nelda spent 45 years ministering, with 20 of that being with the Foursquare Church. Even after retirement, they were always eager to share their love of Jesus Christ. He was always willing to give of himself in time, in money, in home, and in love. There was no stranger to Jerry. He truly embodied the call of Christ: “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel.”

Jerry went to be with his Maker, April 18th, 2020, in the presence of his son, Bud. He was surrounded by love and family and with hands held he took his last peaceful breath.

Memorial services (pending) will be held in Arkansas City, Kansas and Oracle, Arizona.
