Joyce and family,

I know Hank will be missed by all who knew him. He was easy to like, pleasant to spend endless time with at the bay and always interesting when discussing the vagaries of boating experiences. We always treasured time spent with him and his wonderful family and friends. He was the kind of man who will always be remembered by those whose lives he touched.
