On Thursday, November 16 th 2023, Earl DeWayne Hendrix passed away peacefully at his home in Prineville, Oregon. He was born in Honobia, Oklahoma on February 23rd , 1943. His family soon moved to Prineville, Oregon in 1945 when he was two years old. He grew up in Prineville and graduated from Crook County High School. He then joined the US Air Force and was stationed in Wichita, Kansas. He then had two sons. He was released from active duty in 1965 and came back to Prineville where he met the love of his life and they then soon started their own family. They went on to have 4 children and began their lives together. He started his own masonry business as a brick layer in Prineville and worked doing so for over 50 years. He became very well known in Prineville for his extraordinary work and was highly respected in his profession. He took great pride in his work, it was showcased not only around Prineville but Central Oregon as a whole. In Prineville you can see his talented artwork all around our small town, such as the Honor Circle War Memorial at Ochoco Creek Park, Krider Law Office Building, Norm’s Xtreme Fitness building, and the Prineville Insurance Agency Building. He also built the fountain at the Crook County Courthouse, and built the fountain in front of the current Prineville liquor store as well as the building. He also built the sign in front of the original Prineville Police Department, and did the building of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (Vets Club Building) as well as many MANY other residential and private buildings and residences. He enjoyed spending most of his spare time with his family, reading, taking drives, and watching the news and football. Earl got the most joy out of his life by having and raising his family. He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Janie (Villastrigo) Hendrix, his four sons Dewayne, Todd, Shawn and Travis, his daughter Christy (Hendrix) Coffer, 15 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his son Mike Hendrix, his father and mother Dan and Charlotta Hendrix, and many other loved ones. Memorial contributions can be made to his wife Janie Hendrix.
