James Michael “Mic” Hendryx, 65, died Feb. 25, 2015, at his home in Deep Creek. “Mic was a very open-hearted, generous man, and a gift to make each person he met feel special,” his family said.

A service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 7, 2015, at The Kenai Peninsula Memorial Chapel & Crematory, 5839 Kenai Spur Highway. A reception will follow from 5-7 p.m. at Tyotka’s Elder Center in Old Town Kenai.

Mic was born in White Salmon, Wash., March 11, 1949, to Ellen Keys Hendryx and George Hendryx. He served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam in the early 1970s. He was a heavy equipment operator and enjoyed going out to rural Alaska to work on airfields, building water and sewer systems throughout Alaska.

He was a father, grandfather, nephew, cousin and brother, uncle and friend to many.

He is survived by his sons and daughters-in-law, Sean and Barbara in Nikiski, Jarred in Phoenix, and Keene and Eulalia Hendryx; grandchildren, Kate Hendryx and her brother Dezmond, Brandon and Hunter Wilson, Sharon, Jack Williford and family, and Eric, Pat Billman and family.

He also leaves his good friends, Gary and Eileen Wright and Curt McClain, and many others, far too many to mention.

He leaves his beloved dog, Shelia, who was with him when he passed. 

He was preceeded in death by his parents, Ellen Keys and George Hendryx; his most favorite cousin, Mildred; and John Gilman and Aunty Minnie and Aunty Bertha in Washington. 

“We will miss him and his generous personality and his even bigger heart and easy smile, and we will always hold him close and be grateful to have shared his life,” his family said.

His ashes will be sprinkled on his property in Deep Creek and along the beaches that he loved to ride around the Deep Creek area.
