I met Hank in 1968 when I attended the Encampment for Citizenship in White Plains. He was at law school and was a staff member at EFC. I remember him vey fondly and only just found out about his passing away.

I'm back again. The Tufts Class of 1964 reunion is coming up, and I think a lot about back then. I realize that Hank was one of my very best friends, and his calm wisdom and friendship were invaluable to me.

I remember he'd tell me about working in the DC estates and probate department, I think on the Marjorie Merriweather Post estate, and I remember our shopping trip over to an Anacostia record store, where the owner saw me entranced by her poster of Lola Falana on the wall and explained to me: "She's our Farrah Fawcett." Hank loved that.

I'm so sorry we dropped out of touch when I moved to the Midwest, and then he passed. I would have treasured his lifelong friendship, and would have loved to have discussed with him all the changes in the country since then.

I was a law school classmate and friend of Hank. I had reason to think about him this morning (long story but not the first time he has passed through my thoughts in the years gone by) and to launch a search for him. He was a lovely man and a kind friend to me (and my first husband). I was so sorry to read of his death. I hope you find it comforting to know that he still lives in the memory of far-flung friends like me.

After checking the Peace Corps directory, I tried one more people-search to find Hank, a good friend from the 1968 Encampment for Citizenship in White Plains, NY. I was so sorry to find his memorial. He was one great guy and we shared some good times. We were both RPCVs (Peru for me) and loved working and living with the high school kids at the 1968 White Plains Encampment program. Hank visited here in Arizona in the early '70s and we surely thought about him over the years. Sympathy to his family and other friends.

Peace and blessings to my cousin. As a toddler my mother lived with Henry's mother, my great-aunt. I will always have fond memories of the cousins who received me well.

Uncle Henry was my favorite uncle. He would take me places that expanded my culture like museums and broadway shows. As I child I didnt understand how important that was. I really appreciated him. Its been a few years now and I miss him but I know he is in a better place. He encouraged me to reach for the stars.

I was regional Director of the Peace Corps in Colombia and Hank was one of my best volunteers. I'm in the process of writing a book about my time in Barranquilla and I have a chapter on Hank. I had a great photo of him in 1965 but it disappeared. Is there any way I can obtain a photo of him to include in the chapter on him? I would really appreciate it and would send a copy of the book to whomever you chose.

Henry, or Hank, was a good friend and mentor of mine from Tufts, and I also valued the time and talks we shared and the meals we ate in Washington DC during the 1970's--though one Sunday afternoon in a DC parking lot he accidentally bent the handlebars on my Honda 350 when he popped the clutch as I was trying to teach him to drive it. I also remember him commenting how his service in the Peace Corps created a gap of one or two years in his US pop music knowledge, a fact he regretted, and I remembered that he visited and loved Albuquerque, NM. He was a wonderful person and he made the world a kinder and friendlier place. I am thankful I had the opportunity to be his friend.

I remember Henry from the West End,he was always a sweet gentle person and I know that his family was very proud of him.May you know that my prayers are with you and God bless the family he leaves behind.I was good friends with Lois Brown from PT Barnum and we used to walk home from Bassick together.
