Neighbors rally after a double farm tragedy near Jordan


As families gather around their Thanksgiving feast in rural Sand Creek Township this year, they are taking note of two empty chairs.

Mark Hentges, 53, and his son Travis, 25, were electrocuted in a tragic accident recently when their auger contacted a power line. They left behind wife and mother Renee Hentges, and four 20-something children and siblings who all grew up farming.

“This wasn’t supposed to happen,” Renee said recently over her kitchen table. “They both should be here.”
