Hank was a very active and passionate member of AA and for the past 20 years assisted hundreds of people on their path to sobriety. it was not unusual for Hank to put people up and take a personal stake in their quest for a better life.
He traveled across the country his whole life and he would say " I don't know why anyone would want to travel anywhere but the USA , it is the most beautiful place on earth"
When Hank " was " home he loved to sing & dance with his grandchildren as though he was on the broadway stage. He was a genuine character who loved to tell stories of all of his adventures " not sure if they were all true" but you loved to listen to them anyways.
One of his greatest pleasures was walking his dogs and being around other dog lovers as well as boating , golfing and hiking.
Although he is gone, he will never be forgotten. From coast to coast all his friends and acquaintances will miss Henry "Aka" Hank, Sonny , Hammerin Handy Hank , Do-Do the clown and Aloysius but most of all he will be missed by his Family.
