I can't tell you how much we will miss Hank and you. We have grown to love you both in your times of need and hope and I pray we provided some comfort and hope for you both during these years. Seeing you at the lake the previous summers only brightened our days and gave us a real chance to see you outside our work areas. It was also a pleasure to get to meet your two sons in whom you both have left a fine legacy. I have no doubt they have some of Hank's sense of humor and big heart beating in their chests, too. I am working this weekend and won't be able to make the drive, but know that our thoughts and prayers will be with you then and forever more. You precious patients and caregivers are why we do what we do. Mike and I will drop by again this summer to check up on you and see if there is anything we can do. God bless and know in your heart that he is up there (pain free)waiting on you to join him. Mike

hank and bob came to visit me in NJ to see Michael Jordan play when he was with the Wizards. We were new in on home so we did not have furniture yet. Hank sat on the floor in Cacki pants(sorry for the spelling) and drank bud cans and just joked for hours. I said to myself how could this regular great guy be a millionair. He made me realize what life is all about. Be yourself and know where you came from. Hours later we saw the Wizards beat the Nets. ON the way home Hank was in the back set of my K car when he yelled GO GO bar on right. I drove over a grass median and Hank flew off his seat to the floor. He smiled the entire time and said WERE HERE.

The sorrow of the faithful is not that of permanent loss, but the tender sense of sadness that comes in saying good-bye for now to Uncle Henry. May today's sorrow give way to the peace and comfort of God's love. Wishing you hope in the midst of sorrow, and comfort in the midst of pain. REST IN PEACE UNCLE HENRY.

I was surprised and saddened to hear of Hank passing. I had worked with him years ago at James River. I was in the technical/R&D area and had frequent contact with him regarding work we were doing for the mills he was responsible for. I always found Hank to be a kind and thoughtful person, easy to work with and always willing to listen to suggestions. It's very sad to lose a good man like this and my sympathy goes to his family. I'm sure they have a lot of good memories of their life with him.

Words cannot properly express the uniqueness of Hank. He was a wonderful friend, an ethical business associate and was a deeply devoted family man. We will miss his beautiful sense of humor and laughter. He will never be forgotten!

I just Googled Hank and was astounded to learn of his passing. I first met Hank while working at St. Regis in W. Nyack, NY. We both worked for the infamous and highly respected "Sandy" Scheller. I later worked directly for Hank running a converting plant in Louisville, KY. Hank was a great boss, friend and sounding board. He had a magnetic smile and presence that people loved to be around and befriend. He made friends easily, laughed often and especially loved his wife "Gerri" and his sons. A true "Greek," Hank loved to have fun, loved life like no other I have ever met and will be truly missed. Heaven is a better place today with Hank in residence.
