Deputy Hendrix served with honor, integrity and distinction. He did his duty without hesitation. He is a reflection of the integrity of his father; who is also a great man. He is a true brother to his family in law enforcement, the friends he grew up with and those with whom he served in the United States Marine Corps. We are all proud of you and proud to have served with you.

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your honor.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper

Thank you for your service as a deputy and as a U.S. Marine. Prayers to you and your family.

Ryan was my nephew. He was such a private person, even his own family was unaware of some of the heroic things he did as a peace officer and detective. Even some of the people he arrested spoke fondly of him when he died.
I am so thankful to find out that he prayed with inmates and officers when they needed it. I was so happy to see Ryan honored really well; and to know he is with Jesus and free gives me joy.
