Resided in: Pueblo, Colorado

Wicliffe George “Wick” Hendrix, 72, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Dec. 12, 2022. Wick was born on May 30, 1950, in Pueblo, Colo. to Cliff and Elsie Hendrix. His survivors include son, Nathaniel (Rocio); grand dogs, Jager and Guiness; sister, Annella Hendrix (Danny) Dove; niece, Jeannie Dove (William) Arrell; great-niece, Giuliana Arrell; great-nephew, Michael Arrell; brother, Richard “Mort” Hendrix; and ex-wife, Judi Huber Hendrix.

Wick was preceded in death by his parents, Cliff and Elsie Hendrix; and brother, Michael Hendrix.

Wick was a graduate of East High School and USC earning a degree in Chemistry. In his lifetime, he was a Marine, worked for the BLM, the lab at the CF&I, and was a plant manager in the lab at the Wastewater Treatment Plant in Pueblo. Wick really enjoyed flying. He ended up getting his pilot’s license and a Comanche airplane then became a flight instructor. Many wonderful family trips were taken with him as a pilot. He and a couple of good friends liked taking motorcycle trips and breakfast almost every morning with various friends. Wick enjoyed dancing, giving lessons, Zumba, family gatherings, and watching his great-nephew, Michael, play basketball for Central and then Centennial. But, his favorite activity was probably walking with his grand dogs!

6027 Papa, your wonderful pancakes will be missed by all!

  1. Condolences to the family. Wick was such a gentle soul and a man of few words but very kind. He knew so many dances & was willing to share them wit many. He definitely will be missed. Dancing in the sky!

  2. Wick was one of my oldest friends. I would see him when I came home to Pueblo and would have dinner, lunch, go motorcycling, or just hang out. Pueblo will not be the same without him being around.
    Wick was not a religious man, but I am waiting for him to signal me from the other side. You are a good friend.

  3. I worked with Mike at County Market. I remember Mike telling stories of he and Wick flying to Mexico and other destinations. They used to occasionally fly to Cabela’s in Nebraska and I was lucky enough to be invited once. What an adventure!! I was freaking out most of the flight but I’ll never forget it and I still tell the story to this day. I’m sorry to hear of Wick’s passing. I pray that he and Mike will reunite in heaven for new escapades!

  4. Wick will be missed by all of us that hung around the airport. Be it at Saturday breakfast or visiting in the hangar, it will not be the same without Wick. His pleasant demeanor and good nature made him well liked. God speed, my friend, rest in peace.

    Torry and Carol Krutzke

  5. Wick was like an uncle to me growing up, he was my dads closest friend. He always was so kind and a genuinely good person. I will greatly miss seeing him at the airport and know it will never be quite the same.

  6. Wick was my closest friend. We shared many flying and other experiences. He was always ready and willing to do anything to help. He will be missed by many, especially me. Pueblo’s airport will never be the same.

  7. CandleImageWick was a good friend of our father, Dan Medved, and someone he talked about a lot through their lives as pilots. I remember him while I was growing up, at fly-in’s and just about every weekend at the airport. He was a very friendly and kind person. We are terribly saddened for the loss of Wick. Love and prayers from the Medved family.
