The North Carolina Division of the Southern States PBA has started a memorial fund to help the family of Henderson County Deputy Ryan Hendrix.  Ryan responded to a call assisting a family in need. Deputy Hendrix was fired upon and fatally wounded.


In passing Ryan continues to serve others as he was also an organ donor.  Ryan’s family wants everyone to know that “Ryan was doing the job he was born to do and he died doing the job he loved”.  Ryan leaves behind his two children, 9 and 6, and his fiancée.


100% of the money received by the PBA in the Deputy Ryan Hendrix memorial fund will go to the Hendrix family.  Donations can be made using the below link.
