He was married to Mary Lou Allen, May 14, 1950 at the Scotland Church of God, East of Duenweg, Missouri. They were happily married for over 70-years. He is survived by his wife, Mary Lou, three daughters, Kay Brock, (Carl) Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, Vickie Butler (Mike), Grove, Oklahoma, Tammy Oxendine (Jim), Diamond, Missouri, and Reverend Robert Hendrix Jr, Satanta, KS, one sister, Iris Curtis (Bill), Granite City, Illinois, nine grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren. He was a graduate from Carthage High School in Carthage Missouri in 1949.

Reverend Hendrix pastored for over 50 years, including the four Church of God’s in SW Missouri, Scotland Church of God, First Church of God, Granby, Missouri (twice), Southside Church of God, Joplin, Missouri, and the Grand Avenue Church of God, Carthage, Missouri. He also pastored the First Church of God in Chanute, Kansas. He attended Gulf Coast Bible College, Houston, Texas in the mid 70’s as a pastoral student.

Posted at 10:29pm
Dear Mary Lou, you may not remember me but I am Janice Rankin Carter formerly of Chanute, KS. Robert was my Pastor when I was 19 or 20. Bobby was a little boy at the time & Tammy was a young girl. I went to GBC in 1972 & I believe you followed me shortly after. I stayed for a year & a half. I remember both of you as being so sweet, caring & humorous. Remember the story about cooking 2 chickens for the 2 of you right after you were married? LOL! So many pleasant memories. Our son, Chad went to MACU with Bobby so he knows him. Small world, huh? I know it's a huge loss to lose such a wonderful man but we have to think about where he is & that he is seeing Jesus & rejoicing with Him. Someday we will see him again & spend eternity with him & all those who we have lost. Please know we are thinking of you & praying for you. Love & Prayers, Dwight & Janice Carter
