We have been neighbors with Hank and Marie for almost 30 years. We were both deeply saddened to see Hank had passed away. Our thoughts and Prayers go out to Marie and the family. Hank was such a sweet man and we will miss seeing him as we pass by.

Known this guy since our son played baseball; Henry coached. We became very close friends; Marie and I went to school together. This man always took care of his family, always made me laugh, never knew just what he would say. He will be missed and I send much love, hugs and prayers for all the family.

My grandson, Xavier, and I will always remember the times Hank gave us a penny for the gumball machine. Xavier is now 16, and often mentions the memory when he sees refills for gumballs in the store. Hank was a quiet man, but he made an impression on a 3 year old little boy. Our love goes out to Marie, and his family.
