Cecil Hedrick, 91, Nixa, went home to be with the Lord June 27, 2019. So appreciated for his genuine, giving heart to friends, neighbors and his church, he was lovingly visited and surrounded by many family and friends these final weeks.

Cecil was born May 8, 1928, in Reeds Spring, the son of Elbert and Tressie Hedrick. He graduated from Reeds Spring High School and then enlisted the U.S. Navy in 1946 serving his country for two years. Cecil was then united in marriage to Estelle McCrorey on December 19, 1947. After their marriage they lived 10 years in the Los Angeles area, but then returned home to the southwest Missouri area and ultimately settled in Nixa in 1994. Cecil was a homebuilder and woodcraftsman for many years. He has been a member of the First Baptist Church of Ozark for 55 years.

Cecil was preceded in death by his parents and brothers Paul, Bob and Wayne Hedrick and sister Merle Eaton. He is survived by his son, John Hedrick and his wife, Nancy and grandchildren: Christopher, Brenden and his wife Heather, and Sara. He also leaves behind his brother, Bill Hedrick, Billings, Mo. and sisters May Weathers, Santa Maria, Calif., Evelyn Dooling, Stilwell, Kan., and Rosalee Angus, Billings, Mo.

Services will be held at First Baptist Church of Ozark at 10 a.m. Monday July 1, 2019, with burial to follow at Yocum Pond Cemetery. Visitation will be at the church one hour prior to the service. Memorial gifts can be made to the First Baptist Church of Ozark Building Fund or the American Heart Association.

I just remembered he did an addition to my parents home, likely in the 1970's. I live there now and appreciate his fine work.

Cecil was such a wonderful person to know and be around. We had the pleasure of being his friend for over 21 years and were the recipients of numerous pieces of his woodworking talents. We’ll truly miss him, but will feel comforted knowing that he is with Estelle once again. Rest in peace, old friend.

I wanted to add my condolences to Mr. Hedrick’s family and friends. Sadly, the sting of pain that death leaves with us is something all too common to mankind. However, the Bible shares with us a future where we won’t have to feel or even have knowledge of this pain. At Isaiah 25:8 it says God will “swallow up death forever” and “wipe away tears from all faces”. How wonderful this future will be with our loved ones.
