Richard "Richie" Hendershot

August 3, 1964 — February 23, 2023


Richard "Richie" Hendershot, 58, of Havelock, passed away on Thursday, February 23, 2023, at Carolina East Medical Center.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 2 p.m., Sunday, March 26th at the Cherry Branch Clubhouse in Havelock.

Richie was born on August 8, 1964, in Morristown, New Jersey, to Richard Hendershot Sr. and Elizabeth Hendershot. Back in the day Richie enjoyed attending stock car races with his family.  He was a great roller skater and went every weekend to Florham Park Skating Rink with his friends and sister.  He loved participating in neighborhood shenanigans. Richie enjoyed working out in his yard and giving it some added curb appeal.

When he wanted to relax, he would grab a chair and head to the beach, playing puff, puff, pass. One of his favorite pastimes was cooking and his favorite meal to prepare for the family was chicken and mushrooms. Nothing compared to the love he had for his family. He was a true family man. Richie will be remembered as a loving father and grandfather.

Those left to treasure his memory are his companion, Hailey Caplan of the home; father, Richard Hendershot Sr. of Dunellen, Florida; daughters, Sophie Terk of Havelock, Lauren Rosario of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Shannon Lapp of Lancaster, Pennsylvania; son, Chad Hendershot of Morristown, New Jersey; sister, Peggy Harper of Succasunna, New Jersey; brother, Raymond Hendershot of Dunellen, Florida; and grandson, Ace Hendershot of Morristown, New Jersey.

Richie was preceded in death by his mother, Elizabeth Hendershot.
