I'll never forget you!!
One of the things I will always remember was when your Chevy convertible was stolen and as we were talking outside someplace...can't remember where....your car went by us. You almost had a fit. The look on your face...priceless. You almost had a fit.
I will always remember you and how handsome you were, how funny you were, but mostly what a kind and loving man you really were.
I will miss stopping by Toads to see you when I return to Omaha. ...

Worked with Hank for many a year at the old station and he always came to work in white socks and loafers and had a pocket book in his rear pocket. AS the extra nice story in WH he was a great story teller and loved the sea and beach and left the job once to collect sea shells but didlreturn.He always had an angel upstairs at the old station that looked over him and he could do no wrong. This man was GW. Omaha has lost a great person whom loved life and people. Sorry to be out of town and...

I recall a snowy Saturday when I lived upstairs at 1002 Howard (Mr Toad) and went downstairs because I knew Hank brought donuts on Saturdays. Within mnutes Hank began the story of why the movie "Shane" was the greatest western in American film history. No one spoke throughout the mans story and it was not over quickly. I dare anyone to ask me today.. 25 years later .. what the greatest American western movie was.
May the Lord wrap his arms around you those in your wake and...

Hank was my Dad,s childhood friend. I can still hear some of the stories my Dad told about there fun times in high school. Rest well Hank

to Kent....... all our love, Babs and Howard

My sympathies to the family and his dear friend Gayle. Hank was a wonderful person. I met him in the 70's when he was visiting San Francisco and saw him occasionally thoughout the decades since. He was a man of humor and his own view of the world. God bless him.

Thanks, Hank, for many great memories - listening to good jazz, discussing politics and religion,sharing good food and conversation with family & friends and reading your novel - "Moscovian Sniper"(that you never published). What a smart and fun guy you were - I'll miss you old friend.

Being able to know and work with Hank is one of those things that will never leave me. Talking with Hank made an hour seem like a minute. Loved the way he looked at life. Miss you Hank.
