Henry and his pal Avery would sit with Goober, Bob and I at Sportsmen Club stags as the MAC from time to time in the early 80's. I'm pretty sure he actually enjoyed our company and I know we enjoyed a story or two he'd share on being a landlord..., with a big tumbler or course. For years since I've said many times that I wanted to grow up to be just like that guy.
Far short.

Dear Bonnie, Judy and I were very sorry to discover that Henry has passed away. Although it has been a very long time since we have seen Henry and you we have very fond memories of being together. I worked at the First Wisconsin Bank with Henry and my office was next to his. Judy and I moved to Miami over 40 years ago and the last time I saw Henry was when we moved and he appraised our home in Fox Point. Please accept our sympathy and extend it to your family. Sincerely, Judy and Henry

Bonnie, Mary, and Nancy. I have nothing but amazing memories of Henry/Hank. He was a childhood favorite dad. I loved his sense of adventure and his loving and gentle hand in all of our doings. My best memories, and (I know I told you already) were when we'd take the boat, he'd hook the boat up to that big blue station wagon and we'd launch at the marina and cruise to the river. The snacks were a plenty, the soda was a flowing, and the adventure was a happenin'!!! Hank was a "safe dad" he always made me feel so welcome and he was so giving, I don't remember him getting angry. When we were finished with our river ride he always offered to take us to Pig N'Whistle, Hank encouraged me to try a strawberry sundae!! Thank you Hank~ rest in peace ~ I know that his passing during the year of the pandemic is another painful portion of this messed up year! You lost many months of spending quality time with him and for that I am so sorry, it's so unfair, but I am glad that his passing was peaceful and I am positive he is home with Jesus. He worked hard to earn his way to heaven and he is most definitely in a great place!! Mary and Nancy, he loved you two so much and you were exceptional loving daughters! Bonnie, you were his rock and an amazing wife to Hank...I have you in my prayers for sure! Love you all, Meg.

Dear Mary, Nancy and the rest of the Thinnes clan.... From high school days, I remember you Dad's big smile, as he sat in his chair in your family room while a group of us "invaded" your house on a weekend night or as he took a bunch of us on a cruise up the Milwaukee river. Your father was a warm and generous man, and I know he will be so missed by all of you. God speed to your father as I'm sure he arrives in heaven with his biggest ever. John
