Charles A. Hedrick, Jr., age 89, of Elsmere, DE passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Thursday, January 11, 2024. He was born and raised in Marshallton, DE and was the son of the late Charles A. Hedrick, Sr. and Ruth C. Miller.

Charles attended Marshallton School. He was a HVAC technician and electrician until he retired in his late 70’s.

He enjoyed playing poker and going to the horse races. Later in life he liked to do daily lottery scratch- offs. Charles favorite holiday was Christmas and he made sure his children as well as children of family and friends had presents under the tree.

A private graveside burial is planned.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to Mill Creek Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary, P.O. Box 5074, Wilmington, DE 19808-0074
