    Some of my happiest memories were growing up at the Lake with Hank. He was a great man and step father to us. He taught us a lot and I’m grateful for the time we got with him. We will all miss you greatly. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone.

    Hank was a heck of a good cop and nice guy. He was the real thing and my family will always treasure his friendship and his wisdom. He broke me in as a young detective. I am so sorry for your loss and I will never forget him.
