In today’s world, dramatic change can be experienced in moments, days, months, decades – so what must it feel like to experience an entire century of life?


Robert Johnson, Chairman of the High Country Council of Governments recently signed a resolution honoring the life and 100th birthday of Creston resident Thomas Perry Hendricks.


According to the resolution, Hendricks celebrated his centennial on Sept. 27, 2012, after witnessing many historical events including the moon landing, several major wars, the Great Depression, and the Inauguration of the first African American president.


Hendricks was born in Detroit on Sept. 27, 1912, to parents Harry and Viola Hendricks. Hendricks was married to his wife, Clara, for 64 years. He worked as a machinist until he retired in 1977. He lived in Michigan with his son Tom after Clara’s passing and moved to North Carolina in April of this year to live with his son Terry after Tom’s passing.


Hendricks belongs to the Lutheran Church and enjoys fishing, reading and doing crossword puzzles. Also according to the resolution, “Hendricks contributes so much to the lives of his family, his friends and all with whom he has become acquainted over the span of his one hundred years.”
