March 20, 1934 - December 4, 2021
Patrick (Pat) Hendricks, 87 of Toledo, died Saturday December 4, 2021. Pat was born March 20, 1934, to Raymond and Anne (Helvey) Hendricks in Toledo. He was raised by his maternal grandparents, Ed and Mary Helvey, after the death of his mother shortly after his birth. Pat attended Rosary Cathedral and Central Catholic High School, class of 1952. He married Mary Donnelly in 1955 and was married for 48 years prior to Mary’s death in 2004. For 38 years, Pat was employed at Libbey Owens Ford, working as an instrument repairman in the maintenance department at the former East Broadway and Rossford locations. Upon his retirement, he managed the Blessed Sacrament Community Center for several years. Throughout his adult life, Pat participated in activities focused on the young people of the community. Pat helped start the CYO football and basketball programs at Rosary Cathedral, taking teams to numerous championships, but more importantly teaching young men and women the importance of giving their all in everything they do. He also served on the Cathedral school board, parish council, founded an athletic booster program, and chaired several fundraising activities and events. He continued his ministry at Central Catholic, serving as Athletic Booster President, earning the Golden Shamrock Award for his service. Pat continued to provide service to Central until recently as a school volunteer and fulfilling his passion for Irish Football by serving as clock operator for freshman and JV games. Pat also had the honor to serve the student athletes of The University of Toledo football team as an academic mentor. Pat spent several days each week, regardless of weather, verifying players were on time and attending classes. He was most proud of the fact that several players came back after graduation to thank him for his service and express how they felt that he and the other mentors were the reason they earned their degrees. Pat’s passion for Rocket Football and the young men and coaches of the program is why he will be laid to rest wearing a cherished team warm-up he was honored to receive. Pat and Mary were most proud or their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and showed the importance of family with their dedication and involvement to the annual Quinn and Helvey reunions. Pat is survived by children Ann (Tim) Doran of Toledo, Larry (Sharon) Hendricks of Sebring, Florida; Jim (Julie) Hendricks of Effingham, Illinois; Kay (Bill) Byrne of Westland, Michigan; Mike (Kaye) Hendricks of Maumee; and David (Betsi) Hendricks of Oregon; sixteen grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. He is also survived by sisters Nancy Bain of Toledo, Ellen (Greg) Ewing and Barb Bansbach both of Phoenix. He was preceded in death by his parents and grandparents; stepmother Patricia Hendricks; sister Mary Ann Dykas; brothers-in-law Reverend Bishop Robert Donnelly and Reverend Marty Donnelly; and In-laws Leonard and Agnes Donnelly. Visitation will be held Sunday, December 12 from 1-7 at Ansberg-West Funeral Home on Sylvania Avenue, with a prayer service at 6:30 PM. Visitation will be on Monday December 13th at 10:00 AM at Blessed Sacrament Church, Bellevue Road, followed by Rite of Christian Burial Mass at 11:00. His final resting place will be rightfully next to his beloved Mary in Resurrection Cemetery. The family would like to extend special thanks to the amazing staff of Charter Senior Living and Memory Care Center of Oak Openings. Donations in Pat’s honor can be made to Central Catholic High School or Blessed Sacrament. The family is comforted knowing that Mom and Dad will be spending Christmas together in heaven.
