HEDRICK, ARTHUR HOWELL Another cowboy has entered heaven with the passing of Arthur H. Hedrick on 9/4/13. Art was valiant to the end, fighting pancreatic cancer with everything he had. He will be sorely missed by his four children, Kim Hedrick (Ron Lenig), Michael Hedrick (Ginny), Michelle Hedrick (Wayne Smith) and Arthur T. Hedrick (Roberta). Art was married to Mary Lou Hedrick for 31 years and called her his best friend even after their divorce some 20 years back. Art was also fortunate to help raise another daughter, Brittany (Joshua) Hess, with close friends, Dee Hess-Scaltrito and Terry Perkins. Art is survived by grandchildren, Austin (Jenny) Hedrick, Ian, Shayna and Jenna Hedrick; Mackenzie and Spenser Smith; great-grandchildren, Wesley Hedrick and Ariela Walby. Art was born in Espanola, NM and was preceded in death by his parents Arthur Clark Hedrick and Sofrona Ward-Hedrick; brothers Alvin Hedrick and Robert Hedrick; sister Ollie Sloan; cousins Jimmy and Johnny Hedrick. Art is survived by his sisters Barbara (Jimmy) Allison, Sugar (Jerry) Morris and cousin, Tom (Loretta) Hedrick. It was Art's request that no service be held.
