Anton Frank Hendricks was born on December 5, 1915, in Minneapolis, MN, the son of Frank and Edna (Scott) Hendricks.  He was raised on the family farm in the Town of Reseburg, rural Thorp, and received his education at Golf School.  During the 1930’s, he worked in the Thorp area, logging, skidding and working in sawmills.  Tony was united in marriage to Ann Abramczuk on June 17, 1939, in Iowa.  He farmed the family farm and worked a few years fro Plautz Brothers, in Greenwood.  In the early 1950’s, Tony sold his cattle and quit farming, and then went to work at the Blue Moon Cheese Factory in Thorp, until retiring in 1974.  He remained on the family farm until entering the Clark County Health Care Center in September 2010.  He will be dearly missed by his family and all who knew him.
