Hank was a wonderful man, devoted to his faith, community, family and job. I had the privilege of working closely with him at Farm Family and learned much about life from him. Among his legacies is Farm Family's building on Route 9W in Glenmont. Hank supervised the project from beginning to end, touching people with his vision, attention to detail, and caring for the needs of the generations to follow. He had a deep appreciation for craftsmanship and the lasting satisfaction of a job well done. Rest in peace, friend.
