Henry Herman Sierocuk was born on June 26, 1922 in Milwaukee, WI to Frank and Victoria (Obrycki) Sierocuk. At the age of two, he moved with his parents to a farm in the Town of Thorp where he was a lifelong resident. He received his education at the Yeager country school in rural Thorp. At age 18, he moved to Chicago to work. He later returned to Thorp and worked on the family dairy farm, which he later purchased. He was united in marriage to Ruth Slota on November 10, 1956 at St. Hedwig’s Catholic Church in Thorp. In addition to dairy farming Henry was also a cattle hauler, in the Thorp area, for 48 years. Henry resided on the farm until entering Oakbrook Health & Rehab in July of 2005. He was a member of St. Bernard-St. Hedwig’s Catholic Church.
Henry had a great love for farming. He also enjoyed having horses around him and collecting and restoring International tractors. He will be sadly missed by his family and friends. Henry always had a smile and a joke for everyone he met.
