Mark was born on April 9, 1951 in San Diego, California to his parents  Creath and Ira Hendricks. He grew up in the South with a deep love for  all things Mississippi; especially Ole Miss and Civil War battlefields. He  relocated to Florida where he married Barbara “Barbie” Custer  Hendricks in 1990. It was then that he began his career with Walgreens,  having retired after 29 years in 2019. He then began to live a retired life  to the fullest; traveling to Ole Miss and UF football games, watching his  grandkids play sports and enjoying time with his precious pup “Kirby”.

Mark was an avid coin enthusiast, history buff, train collector and all  around friend. He loved being around his family and watching his  daughters and grandchildren grow up and accomplish their dreams.

He is survived by his wife Barbie Hendricks of Vero Beach, FL, a  brother Randy Hendricks of Orlando, FL, his daughters Christina  “Kimmie” Lamm (Toby) of Vero Beach, FL and Amy Stevens (Adam) of  Apex, NC and his grandchildren Abigail “Abi” Lamm, Toby “TJ” Lamm,  Jordan Stevens and Caymen Stevens.

There will be a “drive by” procession at 1:00pm  at the Hendricks’ residence where people may drive by and wave at the family and offer their condolences. We ask that anyone in attendance  please wear the colors red and/or blue in celebration of Mark’s favorite  things. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you make a donation to the charity  of your choice or thank a healthcare worker with a random act of  kindness in Mark’s name.

John E. Quinn IV, 82, Vero Beach

October 13, 1938 – February 23, 2021

John Quinn IV, 82, passed on February 23, 2021 in Vero Beach, Florida. He reunited with his beloved wife, Veronica, on the ten-year anniversary of her earthly departure.

John was born on October 13, 1938 in Brooklyn, NY and was a resident of Vero Beach for 15 years, previously residing in Marlboro, NY. He was the devoted father to Laura LaMela, John Quinn, Michael Quinn, Joseph Quinn, and Denise Quinn, as well as a cherished grandfather of 12. John was a veteran of the US Navy, serving 1955-1959.

John was as passionate as he was caring. He had a knack of turning every one of those passions into impressive skills to share with others. A gifted and meticulous builder by trade, he also used his talents to help build up his communities, volunteering for Habitat for Humanity in Vero Beach, upgrading home accessibility for people with disabilities, and helping refurbish St. Mary’s Church in Marlboro, NY. John was a devout Catholic and committed countless hours of service with the Knights of Columbus.  A talented chef, he was always researching and testing new recipes, preparing delicious meals for his family, and even ran Johnny’s Pizza Shop on Western Avenue, Marlboro, NY. He was a history buff with endless curiosity, always reading and learning about places that would often inspire his next travels. John loved the sunshine, becoming an avid biker and hiker, which were some of his favorite activities to enjoy with friends and family.

He will be affectionately remembered for his smiling blue eyes and booming laughter, as well as his lighthearted pranks and joyful off-key whistling. Most importantly, John spent his abundant life demonstrating the value of family. He led by example with unconditional love, self-sacrifice, and support – and for that, he will be greatly missed.

Services will be held privately at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations will be made in his name to the charity of one’s one choosing.

“I love you a bushel and a peck. A bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck.”
