HAROLD LEE HEDRICK Thursday, January 17, 1952 - Sunday, August 27, 2017

Harold Lee Hedrick, 65, of Republic, Missouri, was welcomed home on Sunday, August 27, 2017. He was born on January 17, 1952, in Kansas City, Missouri, to James "Clifford" and Loretta (Harmon) Hedrick.

Harold caught the eye of a beautiful brown eyed girl and spent 43 years of marriage to Joan Barnard. He was a loving father to his two daughters and taught them how to hunt, play softball, fish and change oil.

Harold threw care to the wind and relocated his family from Kansas City to Republic where he established Hedrick Equipment Rental in 1991. Harold lived a full life with a rebel heart and no regrets. He enjoyed the beauty of nature, leather work, hunting and fishing. He also took great enjoyment in riding his Harley Davidson with BACA, Bikers Against Child Abuse, to whom he was known as “Weird Harold.”

He was reunited with his parents; and sister, Sandra May Corley.

Harold is survived by his wife, Joan Hedrick of Republic; daughter, Jamie Fulks and husband Travis, of Republic; daughter, Adrienne Deckard and husband Scott of Ozark; grandchildren, Tanna Fulks, Cora Fulks, and Julian Deckard; as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.

Harold was a nice guy and would do anything to help a friend. I will miss him. He was always a friendly competitor and I will never forget the day he took me duck hunting. (No ducks were harmed.)   
My heart goes out to Joan, Jamie and Adriane and all the family.
