Lex P. Hildreth, age 74, of Pensacola, Florida finished his fight with Parkinson’s on Wednesday, April 12, 2017. Lex took the path many young men did and married the love of his life, Pamela Joan, because he just couldn’t “take his eyes off of her”. He went on to serve his country, becoming a Sergeant in the Air Force and later worked in Civil Service NAS Pensacola until retirement. Lex was active in serving his church throughout his life.

Lex was preceded in death by his father, Max, mother, Bernice, brother Max, Jr., and brother Hubert. He is survived by his wife, Pamela Joan Hildreth of 52 years, his son, Chris (Amy) Hil
dreth of Georgia, daughter, Cindy Hildreth of Tennessee, granddaughters, Emma and Ana Ruthe Hildreth of Georgia, brother, Charles (Marie) Hildreth of Arizona and uncle, Bill (Anne) Wallace of Florida.
