Antone Wolf was born April 15, 1925 in Stark County, the son of Raphael and Barbara (Eberts) Wolf. He grew up on the family farm between South Heart and Belfield and attended country school. Tony began working on the farm at a young age and his love for the farm grew deep in his blood. He loved farming his entire life! Tony also broke horses in his younger days. On November 6, 1951, Tony married Rose Schmidt at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Dickinson. Their marriage was blessed with seven sons and two daughters. The family was raised farming and running a dairy operation west of South Heart. In the early 1970’s, Tony began Wolf Custom Harvesting. Along with his sons, they traveled throughout the Midwest custom combining. He was a hard worker. His grandchildren will remember his help with their paper routes and stopping by the gas station for pizza and snacks. Tony and Rose retired from the farm in 1999 and moved to Belfield before making their final home at Evergreen in Dickinson.
