Fran, Earl, Judy and to all Henry's family:
I just received my Delta Chi Quarterly and noticed Henry's passing. Henry was my Delta Chi "Big Brother" when I pledged Delta Chi in 1953 and he was a good friend and a good Brother. We kept in touch for a number of years after he graduated and we arranged to meet once in NYC when he made a NASA Appearance at, I believe, Macy's Department Store. Afterwards we had coffee and enjoyed remembering old times...and when we took our Delta Chi Brother, Romey on a trip to New Orleans after his accident. Although we lost touch over the years, I still thought of him and wished him well. He will be missed by many. Now Henry has REAL wings.
RIP my Brother...

My deepest sympathy to the Hartsfield family. Your father lived a life others dream of. How grateful he must have been to not just gaze up into the heavens in wonder but to actually cross it's threshold and view Gods craftsmanship..."Lift up your eyes to heaven and see. Who has created these things? It is the One who brings out their army by number; He calls them all by name...Not one of them is missing. Isaiah 40:26, May our Great God comfort you at this time and may you find peace in knowing He will remember Henry by name.

We all miss our love ones when they pass away but please know that in Gods appointed time many ones that passed away are coming back to life. A promise from our loving God.

He was a renaissance man: test pilot, holder of a degree in physics, re-builder of car engines, recipient of military ranks and honors... all in all, a hard act to follow.

On behalf of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, who presented Hank with the Pioneer in Space Medal in 1988, we offer our condolences and sympathy to his family. I enjoyed meeting him in 1988 after the presentation and see his eyes sparkle as he saw my husband, Roger Burke, a colleague from NASA at the function. Later, he was Roger's boss at Raytheon after both joined the company in 1998 and both retired in 2005. He was truly an excellent example to those who knew him.
