I was truly shocked and saddened to learn about Henry's passing. I work at the South Orange Family YMCA and "Hank" was a regular in my Cycle class and one of the early morning members to come in. I am going to miss this bright smiling face in the morning. He was always the first member to sign up for any challenge, whether it be the Holiday Challenge, Cycle Challenge or Spring Meltdown and always the first to buy whatever raffle tickets we were selling. He was always at many of our fund raisers like the 5K and Strong Kids Picnic either as a participant or a volunteer. I work behind the front desk in the early morning hours and Hank was always a bright spot in my morning. His absence is truly felt by all of us here at the Y. My sincerest of condolences to all of his family. He will be sorely missed.

Dear Mark,Joanne, Kaitlyn and Samantha,

Our hearts, as yours, are broken. I received a text from Hank just
before he returned from Alaska. He said he was so happy to have gone and had a wonderful time, especially the icebergs! He liked to
call me his travel agent and we were planning our next trip; a Mississippi River Cruise!
I'm sure now he's telling Mary all about it~they loved you all so
much. We will never have another glass of wine without thinking of him. All our love and prayers, Ann Marie & Frank.

Dear Mark, Joann, Kaitlyn and Sammy,

I am so very sorry for your loss. Mark, I have some really good memories of your Dad-especially from when we were kids. He was incredibly smart and so funny and his love for your Mom and you and Joann and the girls was always apparent. Sending all of you my love.

Lisa
