We have had the great privilege to know and be friends with Hank. He will always have a special place in our heart and will be missed dearly.

 

I worked with Hank for over 20 years. I was the only supervisor ever to be in charge of the ERW mill in all of his years. I often played cards at his house back in the early years and went to many sporting events. White Sox, Bears and 2 Cub games. I was fortunate enough to have dinner with him and Rick Dorn and then they came by my motel and we had a long visit about 5 years ago. I met his wife several times and all of his sons but I doubt the sons would remember after all these years. I will miss Hank. He is one of the very few that I still exchange Christmas cards with from Midwest.
