So sorry to hear about the passing of Hank. I knew him from him working at walmart. He always would say hi to me when he seen me. Prayers to his wife and his family.
Uncle Hank was a great guy. We have so many fond memories of the times he, Aunt Sally, Carpie, and Mitch came to Columbus for summer vacations. He always had time for all of us “kids” and made sure there we lots of fun activities to fill our days. Our sympathy to Joan and all the family on his passing. He will be missed.
