Hendley, Jr., John "Jack"
On Sunday, November 22, 2020, John Redford Hendley Jr., loving father, step father, and husband passed away at the age of 54. John, better known as Jack, was born on April 6, 1966 to John Hendley Sr. and Suzanne Hendley (Atwell). He was the youngest of four siblings, following James Hendley, Jan Fredrickson, and Judy Clapp. Jack was a prominent figure in Middlefield, having lived nearly his entire life in the small town and dedicating a great portion of that life to the Public Works Department. A blithe man, Jack was always sure that those around him felt welcome and loved, never putting himself before anybody and never taking a second for granted. In his short life, he raised two children, Cody and Jessica Hendley, and in his second marriage to his beloved wife Wendy Hendley (Sarro), he gained two more children in Mason and Quinn Sarro-Twickler. Jack's free time was always brimming with outdoor activities including hunting, fishing, camping, and in his later years, birdwatching from the comfort of his recliner. Jack was the greatest father and husband and will be remembered as a friend to everyone who ever had the pleasure of knowing him. A caring and loving man, he will never be forgotten. A private funeral service will be held on Saturday, November 28, 2020 at Biega Funeral Home on 3 Silver Street in Middletown. Due to COVID-19, socially distanced calling hours will be held Saturday, November 28, 2020 from 2 to 4 p.m. at Biega Funeral Home. Masks are required for calling hours, but all are welcome.

I will always remember Jack fondly He was always there for a belly laugh and I will never forget all our memories as young newlyweds Lisa and Jack were such a huge part of our twenties and young thirties We raised our babies together and spent many weekends in each other’s company at the beach , camping or just hanging out playing cards. I’m so grateful for all those cherished memories with Jack sending love peace and comfort to his whole family at this very difficult time

I remember Jack fondly as a great addition to our classroom. He had so many interests and years later I would always see Jack and get a wave when he was out on a Middlefield truck. His death comes as a huge shock to me as well as his many friends. May Jack Rest in Peace.
