Hank and I have been friends for years. Primarily as screen media peddlers. Some may have viewed our relationship as somewhat mischievous....maybe it was. Maybe it was because our birthdays were 10 years and 1 day apart??? We always had a good time talking together and exceptionally great times when we were able to get together. I believe our most noteworthy collaboration was the introduction of Flex-Mat Man. Unbeknown to by buddy, I had made the costume by hand, dying it lime green for the proper effect. I carried it with my luggage to the final destination. At the appropriate time I said to Hank "What if there was a Flex-Mat Man suit available....would you wear it? Hank's face lit up and said "I sure would!" The rest is history. Hank was a great friend. I will truly miss him.

I worked with Hank at Buffalo Wire, he was the kindest, most talented person, just an amazing guy, I thought the world of him! He was a pleasure to work with, he made me laugh, he made me smile, I am a better person for knowing him. My heart goes out to his lovely wife, beautiful daughter and adorable grandson, he thought the world of you all! His kindness and sweet personality made a difference in so many peoples lives, he was just a special, special person. Hank Stindt, you were with out a doubt a blessing to anyone who was lucky enough to call you friend, may you rest in peace,..

It seems like I never formally met Hank—I just sort of took up with him at church and we started talking as though we had known each other for ever. His love for his grandson, Jake, always impressed me. To Hank, Jake was the son he never had and his loyalty to Jake in his golf adventure alone proves the point. Hank was equally devoted to the other members of his family—Judy, Missy, Rick. Hank was a family man in the truest sense of the word and a man who practiced his faith with unassuming persistence and reverence. Those are the memories that will stick with me. Hank was my friend and I will miss him.

Ron and I are stunned and shocked and sad we did not plan more to see Skip and Judy just one more time.

Omg did we ever have the best times in our early twenties and beyond. We still laugh about how we “decorated” your apartment while you were gone on your honeymoon.

There will never be another Skip.
Best men to each other weddings, friends for life.

Love to Judy, Missy and the entire family. Love, Ron and Nancy

Skipper, It will never ever be the same not getting a call from you on OUR Birthdays. I always looked forward to that. Some calls lasted 10 min others longer. One thing for sure we laughed the whole time. I know you always brought a smile to my face. We sure did make fun memories, like the time taking elephants from the ceiling lol. That was priceless. So many more good times. One thing for sure you were a man of your word, and one hell of a good time. You along with others dear to me will live in my heart forever. Thanks for the memories. Until we meet again I love you! Patty

Buddy, I don’t even know where to begin. I knew the moment I met you that we were going to get along real well. You took me under your wing and taught me more than you’ll ever know. Your unique character is something I’ll never get to experience with anyone else because you were truly one of a kind. The way you could interact with people was something special. You made the whole room light up when you walked in, and had everyone laughing within minutes. I’ll never forget the good times we shared over the years. I am honored and privileged to have been able to work with you, and carry on our relationship, even after your numerous retirements. You sir are a great man and I will truly miss keeping in touch with you. May god bless you and your family good buddy. I love you!
