Robert Hedgpeth Obituary

Mr. Robert Lee “Robbie” Hedgpeth, Jr. of Penderlea, departed his earthly life on Sunday, January 28, 2024, while at Lower Cape Fear LifeCare Center in Wilmington, NC.  Born on January 29, 1941, he is the son of the late Robert Lee Hedgpeth, Sr. and Mattie Lou Pardon Hedgpeth.  Also preceding him in death are siblings—JoAnn Carr and William “Bill” Hedgpeth.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife of sixty-five years—Carrie Mae Whaley Hedgpeth; children—Rebecca Frederick of Jacksonville, David Bryan Hedgpeth and wife Amy of Magnolia, and Mark Stephen Hedgpeth and wife Stephanie of Watha; grandchildren—Mitchell David Frederick, Tiffany Amber Frederick, Brittany Tyler Hedgpeth, Opal Rayne Hedgpeth, Reagan Mark Hedgpeth, Evan Cole Hedgpeth, and Devlin Anthony Stanton and wife Kylie; great grandchildren—Jackson David Warden, Savannah Lynn Frederick, Liam Mark Earl, Waylin Bryan Earl, and Kade Patrick Stanton; and his best friend canine—“Cosmo”.

Robert exemplifies all the qualities of a genuinely good man who enjoyed being happy and wanted everyone around him to be happy as well.  His work career involved working with CSX Railways where he served in many different capacities from conductor to engineer.  Some of his favorite pastimes were watching Seinfeld or Andy Griffith while imbibing in a delicious Pepsi Cola.  In later years, his day was made complete and wonderful by sharing a meal with family and friends.  Of all things on earth, he loved his family the most.

A service to celebrate his life is set for 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, February 1, 2024, in the chapel of Padgett Funeral & Cremation Services, with visitation immediately prior to the service at 10:00 a.m.  Interment will follow the service in Riverview Memorial Park of Watha.  It is the request of the family that, rather than flowers, one consider a contribution to Lower Cape Fear LifeCare Center of Wilmington or to the American Cancer Society.
