A celebration of life for Russ Hendley (Big R), 55, will be held at noon on Saturday, April 1, 2017 at The Cowboy Church in Rusk.
Russ was born March 21, 1962 in Pasadena, TX and passed away at his home in Gallatin March 26, 2017.
He is proceeded in death by his beloved mother and best friend, Dorothy Nell Hendley.
He was a devoted father to his two daughters, Stacy Moore (Rick) of Grand Prairie and Rusti Hendley (Cris Murray) of Forney. He also leaves behind a cherished granddaughter, Ralli Rachelle. Countless cousins, friends, and neighbors will cherish his memory.
Russ was known for taking care of those in need, his shrewd business sense, and his propensity to nickname everyone he met. On sunny days he could usually be found riding his Harley on country roads.
He took great pride managing Wednesday night dinner at The Cowboy Church and found peace and comfort there.
The family requests donations to the church in lieu of flowers.
