Bruce was a God-fearing man who loved his Maker and kept a Bible at his bedside. He was a loving son and good brother. Bruce had no children of his own, but many stepchildren that he loved dearly.

Bruce was a good friend to those that knew him; and those that knew him, loved him.

JOHN LAWRENCE HENDRICKSON, 89, PEWEE VALLEY, KY

 
John Lawrence Hendrickson, 89, passed away on Friday, October 15, 2021 at his home in Pewee Valley, KY surrounded by his loving family. John was born on October 5, 1932 in Jamestown, NY to the late Lawrence Raymond and Margaret Hedin Hendrickson. 
 
John was preceded in death by his late wife, Joanne Elise Elowson Hendrickson, and his great-granddaughter, Stella Spoelker. He has been the devoted husband to Dorothy Dow ‘D.D.’ Ellis Hendrickson for 35 years. 
 
SURVIVORS:
4 daughters & 7 grandchildren: Michelle Hendrickson of Shepherdsville, KY; Elise (Bill) Luckey of Columbia, KY & their daughters - Joanne Luckey of Brooklyn, NY, Chelsea (Doug) Spoelker of Louisville, KY, Kaitlin (Andrew) Clark of Pewee Valley, KY; Sarah Townswick of West Hartford, CT & her children — Charlie Townswick, George Townswick & Camille Townswick all of West Hartford, CT; Janet (David) Goodman of Woodstock, GA & their daughter, Ashley Goodman of Woodstock, GA
4 great-grandchildren: Adelaide, Stella & Margot Spoelker, Hadley Clark, and was awaiting the arrival of his first great-grandson, Liam Clark
His best pal and little sister: Mary Kirchoff of Madison, CT
 
John served in the Navy from 1950–1956. He primarily served on the submarine tender USS Bushnell stationed in Key West, FL. He shared many stories of his sailings in and out of Havana, Cuba during his naval service. 
 
John completed his Bachelor’s Degrees in Industrial and Mechanical Engineering from Pennsylvania State University in 1960.  He attended Penn State on the G.I. Bill for which he was eternally grateful. 
 
John took pride in his ability to earn a living and revelled in entrepreneurial pursuits since he was a young boy. Growing up, he said,  “I always had five dollars in my pocket.” Even through his 89th birthday, he enjoyed going into the office every day. His varied career started with a daily newspaper route peddling papers on his bike where he liked to brag that he had doubled his territory from 52 subscribers to 110 subscribers during his 7 years with the Jamestown Post Journal. He had many other jobs as a kid, including a job as a meat cutter at a local Lakewood, NY butcher shop before enlisting as a white cap in the Navy. His grandchildren are most grateful for his time as a soda jerk, where he mastered the world’s perfect milkshake. 
 
Upon graduation from Penn State he became an engineer for Chicago Pneumatic Tool Company, eventually moving to Louisville as a sales engineer.  His gift of gab and deep engineering knowledge launched his successful sales career.
 
John helped found the Quality Stone Company of Middletown in the early 1960’s, before starting his own company, South Central Rotary Drilling. South Central Rotary Drilling operated many drills in limestone quarries and coal mines throughout the state, but John especially loved drilling for the many interstate highway projects that were underway in Kentucky during the 1960s and 1970s. 
 
Upon his first wife Joanne’s death in 1975, John sold South Central Rotary Drilling and invested in real estate closer to home in order to raise his daughters, Michelle, Elise and Sarah. These holdings include American Mini Storage and numerous rental properties in the greater Louisville area. 
 
John was an avid collector. He had a passion for 18th century American furniture, rugs, clocks, dominoes, ship models, cars and antique tools just to name a few. His passion for clocks spilled over to his charitable interests where he and D.D. donated iconic 19-foot Seth Thomas clocks to the town of Pewee Valley and to Lindsey Wilson College.
 
An adventurer at heart, John was grateful that he had the opportunity to travel to many of the places he had only read about. John and D.D. enjoyed guided tours as well as exploring on their own - seeing things you couldn’t find on a tourist map. A favorite recent trip was to Havana, Cuba where John got to show D.D. and his daughters, Sarah and Elise, the places he had visited during his naval service in the 1950’s. He especially relished riding in the classic cars barreling down the Malecón Highway along Havana’s waterfront.
 
John loved his adopted hometown of Pewee Valley, KY. He served on the town Council for many years and was instrumental in acquiring the iconic train caboose placed at the center of town. During his tenure as Pewee Valley Police Commissioner, a train was famously pulled over and ticketed for speeding through his beloved Pewee Valley.
 
No account of John Hendrickson’s life would be complete without mentioning Chautauqua Lake, NY. To John, Chautauqua Lake was a sacred place. He recounted his early days of sailing, ice-skating and fishing with his dad. His first of many sailboats was named Rhapsody. After many summers of visiting Chautauqua during the nine-week season, he and D.D. bought two homes on the Chautauqua Institution grounds, where they spent summers for over two decades. The larger family’s best holiday was July 4th, where everyone gathered for fun and fellowship. John and D.D. practiced radical hospitality hosting friends, family and loved ones from near and far. It was their greatest joy. 
 
To know John Hendrickson was to experience his sharp sense of humor, generosity, love for storytelling, big heart and booming voice. He expressed his love for music with his beautiful tenor voice. As a youth he sang in a boy’s choir, was a member of a men’s quartet called ‘The Four Flats’ and he drummed in a drum and bugle corps.
 
John supported many charities and causes locally, throughout Kentucky and in his hometown of Jamestown, New York. He was a major donor at Lindsey Wilson College for more than 35 years; supported The Stella Effect founded in honor of his deceased great-granddaughter to assist trisomy families; The Chautauqua Institution near his boyhood home as well as youth, athletic and arts programs in Oldham County.
 
Expressions of sympathy should go to the The Hendrickson Scholarship Fund at Lindsey Wilson College (Lindsey Wilson College Development Office 210 Lindsey Wilson Street, Columbia KY 42728 c/o Hendrickson Endowed Scholarship); The Stella Effect to assist trisomy families (The Stella Effect PO Box 5668 Louisville KY 40255); or the Pewee Valley Presbyterian Church (Pewee Valley Presbyterian Church 119 Central Ave, Pewee Valley, KY  40056).
 
Funeral Service: Tuesday, October 19, 2021 at 1:00pmET at the Pewee Valley Presbyterian Church with visitation after 11:30amET 
 
Visitation: Monday, October 18, 2021 from 4:00-8:00pmET at Stoess Funeral Home in Crestwood, KY
 
Burial: Floydsburg Memorial Cemetery. Taps will be played by his granddaughter, Camille Townswick and his dear friend, Donald E. Townswick.

MARVIN ETHRIDGE "BIRDIE" SNOW, 80, RUSSELL SPRINGS, KY


Marvin Ethridge Snow, 80, fondly known as “Birdie”, of Russell Springs, KY passed away on Sunday, October 10, 2021 at the University of Kentucky Medical Center. He was born on October 22, 1940 in the Rowena Community of Russell County to the late Samuel and Nola Chapman Snow.

 

Birdie got his start in life within a large family of 6 siblings learning farm life on the river bottom as 1 of only 2 boys. Both his father and grandfather drove the Rowena Ferry and taught him skills in farming by the river. While just a boy, he could make straight rows for tobacco and often accompanied his father to till the neighbor’s fields. 

 

Birdie served our nation in the U.S. Army Heavy Armor infantry division. He was an enlisted man in the U.S. Army when he met Peggy Hudson. After a short courtship they eloped with family and friends in tow on New Year’s Eve in 1965. Birdie would often speak fondly of Peggy and her very affectionate family of opening his heart to experience tender love. 

 

Birdie became a career truck driver and his love for driving was passed to his children and grandchildren. He racked up millions of miles and mentored many. Birdie was a member of the Bernard Ridge Church of God, where he gave his heart to God and received deliverance from an addiction to alcohol. He believed in God with child-like faith. 
 

Birdie was a down to earth “man’s man”, and an excellent provider for his family. Raised on a farm, necessity taught him to be a solution person and with a soft heart, he was always looking to help someone in need. Birdie could fix anything and was usually found tinkering in his garage or on his zero-turn mower, “keeping the yard up”. He was a big story-teller who liked to fish and turkey hunt (until he killed two turkeys with one shot). Birdie was a generous man; known to give his knives away - if he took a liking to you. He looked forward to the men’s fellowship breakfast at church. Birdie was well-known for his gravy, and teaching other men at church how to make it.  He loved his black coffee, secretly telling his daughter Debra it’s the only way to have it. 
 

SURVIVORS:

Wife of 55 years: Peggy Snow

3 children: Debra Jo Stephens (Randall Finn) of Covington, Georgia, Steve Ethridge Snow of Russell Springs; Kimberly Lou Rosson (Gary Lawless) of Hurst, Texas

3 grandchildren: Joshua Stephens, Amanda Stephens (Ron Calvert) and Mark Isaac Winfrey

GAYLE LOUISE BURRIS, 67, GREENSBURG, KY

 
Gayle Louise (Freyberger) Burris, 67, of Greensburg, KY passed away on Monday, October 11, 2021 at Taylor Regional Hospital. She was born August 7, 1954 in Evansville, Indiana to the late Fred and Louise Happel Freyberger. 
 
Gayle was a member of Mt Gilead Baptist Church. She professed her faith in Christ Jesus as a young child and carried that faith throughout her life. On November 3, 1990 Gayle and Dan were married at Saloma Baptist Church. She instantly became a mother to Dan’s three children. Gayle was the most thoughtful and giving individual any of us had the pleasure of knowing. Her friends and loved ones always had a card in the mailbox for their birthdays and anniversaries. She kept notes on everyone, remembering what they liked or collected. Somehow, she managed to surprise us all with our favorite treats and special gift bags. Her handle was SavvyShopAholic and it rang true. She treasured finding a deal, extreme couponing and ultimately making the store owe her for taking goods.
