William “Bill” H. McKendrick III, 83, joined our Lord in His heavenly kingdom on Tuesday, July 12, 2022.
Bill, known as “Snooky” by close friends and relatives, began his catholic school education in Laredo at St. Peter’s Memorial School and then went on to attend St. Joseph’s Academy. He later attended Texas A&I in Kingsville. He was a man with a keen sophistication for thrills, as a pilot he loved airplanes, fast cars, tractors and anything with a zooming motor. Despite his ferocious appetite for speed, he was known to take the utmost pleasure in Ranch Life and was well known for his humble and caring disposition. He became a hero to many people, most of all to his family as he was always eager and the first to lend a helping hand when anyone was in need. His radiant laugh that filled the house and skilled story telling will be dearly missed.
He was preceded in passing by his parents, Mrs. and Mrs. William and Lois McKendrick, Jr.; siblings, John S. McKendrick, Sr. and Lois Eugene McKendrick Rugama; and his beloved son, William H. McKendrick, IV.
Left to cherish his memory are: his loving wife, Adriana McKendrick; their children, Courtney (Paul) McKendrick Green and Georgeann McKendrick; grandchildren, Andrea Renee Vera, Ethan Green, and William Hudson McKendrick, V.; and longtime best friend, Bitsey. He is further survived by numerous nieces, nephews, other extended relatives, and friends.
The family will be receiving condolences on Sunday evening, July 17, 2022 from 5 to 9 p.m. at Joe Jackson North Funeral Chapels & Cremation Services, 1410 Jacaman Rd.; where a Prayer Service will commence at 7 p.m.
