Gerry L. Mentink, age 60, of County Road V, Waldo, went home to be with his Lord on Thursday, Sept. 2, 2010, at the Sharon S. Richardson Hospice in Sheboygan Falls, after a short battle with pancreatic cancer.

He was born Nov. 1, 1949 in Plymouth, son of the late Howard and Ruth (Harrison) Mentink. He attended Banner Elementary School and graduated from Sheboygan Falls High School in 1967.

Gerry began farming at an early age with his siblings, helping out their parents on the family farm; at the retirement of his parents, he then took over the sole operation of the farm. After the sale of his dairy cows, he continued to farm the land and also worked part time for Cedar Grove Veterinary Clinic.

He was a member of Hingham Reformed Church, and a dedicated member of Sheboygan County Farm Bureau Association.

He is survived by a sister, Janice (Gary) Hesselink of Hingham; a brother, Joel (Brenda) Mentink of Waldo; four nieces, Kate (John) Liebelt, Becky Mentink (fiancé, Eli Brotzman), Kathy Mentink and Jolene Mentink; a nephew, Jason Mentink; and two greatnieces, Amber and Jessy Liebelt.

He was preceded in death by his parents; a sister and brother-in-law, Nancy and Glen Hilbelink.

Funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 7, at Hingham Reformed Church with the Rev. Steven Bakker officiating. Burial will follow in Hingham Cemetery.

Friends may call at the church Monday, Sept. 6, from 4-8 p.m. and again on Tuesday from 10 a.m. until the time of service.
