Among other places he had a successful business career at The Borg Warner Corporation in Detroit and later at The Western Gear Corporation in Los Angeles. In retirement Hank became active again in the ham radio community world wide. An exciting time for him was when he worked on communications at the Iditerod race in Alaska.
