AUGUSTA, Ga. - Jeffery Lee Hendry passed away unexpectedly and peacefully in his sleep from complications of diabetes on January 29, 2015 in Augusta, GA. He had experienced a series of health problems in recent months. He was born in Chicago, IL on April 21, 1949. Jeff lived in Augusta, GA for 20 years and worked professionally as an Electrical Instrument and Control Test Technician. He attended Purdue University for a few years, and served in the Vietnam War. During his lifetime, he touched many people by his genuine interest in their lives. He was known to bring surprise gifts to friends. He always remembered birthdays and anniversaries with a phone call, visit, or a meaningful card. He was a kind kindred spirit who became friends with everyone he met. He will be remembered for his disarming laugh and ability to see the humorous side of life. He was incredibly well-read and inspired others with his love of history - most specifically of the Civil War. He was also interested in inventions and technology. He was an avid movie-buff and appreciated a wide variety of music. He was a devoted son, uncle, and brother. He made the drive from Augusta to North Carolina to see his family nearly every long-weekend that he didn't work. His last visit was early January, when the whole family gathered for the holidays. He was preceded in death by his father, Wallace James Hendry and sister, Linda Hendry. He is survived by his mother, Patricia Hendry of Durham, NC; sister, Laura Shmania of Chapel Hill, NC; brother, Jim Hendry of Knoxville, TN; and many loving nieces, nephews, and friends. A private family memorial will be held.
