    Hendricks, Elmer M. "Nick"
    Elmer M. "Nick" Hendricks, died suddenly Tuesday, April 29, 2008, while working in the woods on his land in rural West De Pere. Elmer celebrated his 87th birthday this past April 5th. He was born in 1921 and was the last remaining member of the Christian and Rose (Roffers) Hendricks family.
    Elmer married the former Evelyn Boyea on July 7, 1948, at Saint Joseph Church in De Pere. They remain lifelong members of St. Joseph Parish. Elmer and Evelyn were married for over 55 years. They had five children, nine grandchildren, one great-grandchild, with another expected in November. Evelyn preceded him in death on December 25, 2004.
    Elmer worked for the Amour Meat Packing Company for over 28 years, retiring in 1979. He always got a kick out of the fact that he was retired longer than he worked at Armour's. Early work included harvesting ice on the Bay with his dad, and laying blocks for the original buildings at Austin Straubel airfield.
    Elmer was an avid outdoorsman. He truly enjoyed the experiences and memories that hunting and fishing gave him throughout his life. He could tell stories in great detail of the deer hunt, the fishing trip, and even of the "one that got away." He especially enjoyed the time spent with family and friends at his cottage on Pelican Lake. He was a past member of the Packerland Musky Club. Elmer enjoyed life, and was active till the end. Most recently, he was ice fishing and turkey hunting. There wasn't a western or war movie that he did not like on television. He made a great kettle of chicken vegetable soup! He loved and enjoyed his grandchildren, their events, and accomplishments. Elmer had, and shared, the wisdom that comes with age, while remaining wonderfully young in many ways. He was the patriarch of the family. We will miss his humor, his common sense approach to life, his stories of the "old days," and his ability to fix anything. He was a kind, gentle, and respected man. He spent his last day in the woods, a place of peace.
    Elmer is survived by his daughter, Donna (Joe) Nikodem, granddaughter, Darcie (Mike) Bevers, great-granddaughter, Kerstin Bevers, and grandson Rocky. Daughter, Linda (Dan) Decker, granddaughters: Beth and Alison. Son, Gary (Debbie) Hendricks, granddaughters: Jennifer and Carolyn; daughter, Fay (Jacob III) Van Camp, grandson, Clifton, daughter-in-law, Donna Hendricks, grandsons: Clint (Marlo) and Jesse. In addition, Elmer is also survived by his sisters-in-law: Rita Boyea, and Loretta Hansen.
    Preceding Elmer in death were his parents, his wife, his son and hunting partner, Glen (February 23, 2002), brothers: Fred, Arthur, Roland, sisters: Leona, Evelyn and Lillian (Babe), as well as in-laws and members of Evelyn's family.

    Fisherman's Prayer:
    I pray that I may
    live to fish.
    Until my dying day.
    And when it comes
    to my last cast,
    I then most humbly pray:
    When in the Lord's great
    landing net
    And peacefully asleep
    That in his mercy
    I be judged
    Big enough to keep.
