Charles William Hendrix
July 24, 1936 – February 7, 2019

Charles Hendrix, a resident of The Hills of Lakeway passed away on February 7, 2019. He was a son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and sports fan among other things. But the over arching description of Charles Hendrix is that he was a "deal maker." He loved finding a deal to make someone happy.

Charles, affectionally known as 'Charlie' was born in Livingston, Texas. His school years were in Nederland, Texas where he enjoyed playing sports and the trumpet. He graduated from Abilene Christian University, married his wife, Shirlene, and was happily married for 62 years.

His son, Larry, was born in 1958 and Charlie found another role as a coach and fan. Charlie missed very few of Larry's games and his love of sports continued as he supported his grandchildren and their teams.

Before settling in Lakeway in 1989 and discovering his passion for real estate, Charlie's love of "the deal" was established in his sales and management career that culminated in his role as the Regional Manager of Fireman's Fund.

Charlie always had an old-fashioned love of the land, and there was never any place that he loved more than the Hill Country and Lakeway. He probably drove 200,000 miles in this area looking for property to buy, a commercial tract to develop, or a family home to buy or sell. Every deal was about solving a problem, finding a needle in a haystack, and making someone happy.

Charlie was a lifetime member of the Church of Christ and a participating member of Lake Travis Church of Christ.

Charlie is survived by his wife Mary Shirlene Hendrix, grandchildren Morgan Elizabeth Hendrix and Hunter Charles Hendrix, a brother and his family, Don Hendrix, Peggy Hendrix, Heather Hendrix Wright and Angel Hendrix Swedlund. He is predeceased by his son, Larry Charles Hendrix, and his granddaughter, Abigail Elaine Hendrix.

A service to honor Charles, will be held at the Weed-Corley-Fish Funeral Home in Lakeway at 11:00 am on Friday, February 15th. Reception will follow the service onsite. A family burial will be held at a later time.
