Eric Hendrix '66


Eric Hendrix died peacefully at his home in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. His wife, Jeanne, and children, Debbie, Donna, and David, were at his side. Eric had graduated from Johns Hopkins, where he majored in political economics, and he later studied at the London School of Economics, leading to an MBA, earned at the University of Chicago. He served in the U.S. government for 30 years before retiring to Myrtle Beach where he designed his retirement abode and built many things, including a car engine. His family recalled that “his ability to analyze and solve problems and to instruct others in building and repairing things, was unparalleled. He loved his 1968 Dodge Charger, the Grateful Dead, and the Tour de France. He will be remembered for his unending patience and persistence, and for his wonderful smile.”
