All this vet needs in company and a ride

Charlie Hendricks is 86 and in recent months has retired to his granddaughter's place outside of Trenton.
Born in Indiana, he, like many other folks, came to Florida seeking his fortune after marrying a woman whose parents lived outside Sebring.
They came in the late 1960s and settled around Anna Maria Island where he and his wife sold real estate. Later on, they opened an office in Dixie County.
“I came because the Suwannee River was next up from Crystal River,” he said.  They had not built Interstate 75 and Dixie was, in his words, different from what it is today. “They had snake pits and alligators and all that stuff,” he said. “Up here, land was $100 down, and I'll carry your paper.”
Hendricks, whose office was in the Carriage Inn, started out selling lots with mobile homes as Hendricks & Homes. His wife kept the office in Anna Maria.
Several months ago, he was redoing a home in Sun City Center when his wife died. He decided against the move into Sun City and came back to a place he knew well — the Tri-County Area.
