  1. My brother in law Hank spent a lot of time with my mom. He visited her once a week, sometimes she cooked, and when she forgot how to cook, Hank cooked himself or brought some take out. They talked and watched game shows together. Once a week for a very long time. He did the same for other people who needed some company. I have such respect for how Hank made the time, every week, to bring a bright moment to my mom, and others. He will be sorely missed by me and my family. Hank, I love you, wish I said it while you were here. Rest In Peace,Marie

  2. My Uncle Hank was always someone who I enjoyed talking to. We would talk mostly about baseball, itΓÇÖs history, how good the Yankees were and how bad the Mets were. My best memories of my Uncle were the ones when he would routinely go outside with me during family events and have a catch for hours. It didnΓÇÖt matter how long we were out there, he always enjoyed it. Hank had a passion for baseball, a passion for people and a passion for family. He will be deeply missed and I will remember you always. Love You Uncle Hank. Steve

  3. Hank, a great brother-in-law and special guy. Will miss him big time. Probably having a conversation with St. Peter right now about baseball and politics. Hank, keep an eye on us. Catch you later. ♥�♥� Carmine

  4. As I read the memories those closest to Hank shared here I realized what a truly special person he was. Even though we were related through marriage we didn’t have much contact and so I don’t have a memory to share. That is very sad. A person with Hank’s passion and compassion doesn’t come along very often. He will be greatly missed by everyone whose life he touched. Antoinette I am so sorry for your loss. There are no words. I just saw this saying in a store: ‘When a person you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure’. I am sure you will treasure the memory of Hank always. My deepest sympathy to you and your children. Love, Gracemary

  5. My brother-in-law Hank was my music concert buddy. I always looked forward to listening and talking about music as we drove to the show. I will miss those special times together. IΓÇÖm sure you are in Rock and roll heaven. Keep on rockinΓÇÖ My brother. Until we meet again. Love you. Matt

  6. Hank, my brother-in-law, there are so many wonderful memories. He brought humor, kindness and love to our family. He took great pride in his delicious deviled eggs and clam chowder soup during the holidays. Always in our hearts. We will miss you deeply. Its not goodbye-its see you later. Love you, Leslie

  7. My deepest condolences to the family, friends and loved ones of Hank…He was a caring man, friend and co-worker. While I knew him only from work, and as I read some of the memorials posted here I realize just how much he touched so many lives in such endearing ways: the times he spent visiting and caring for his aunt as she got on in years, the times he spent visiting people who had no one else to bring them shopping, or to a medical appointment, the times he spent with his son going to concerts with him and friends…. I watched this in the 4 years or so I worked with Hank, and as I look back I realize how he really was an authentically good guy….and how he will be sorely missed by so many. My prayers and thoughts go out to you all…Rest in peace big fella!

  8. Hank you went and left us way too soon and I didn’t have a chance to let you know how fortunate we all were that you became part of our family. You were a loving husband to my sister Antoinette and a great Dad to Jason,Danielle and Adam and just an all round good guy.We will miss you Hank! Safe travels till we meet again…love Phyllis

  9. Hank, my oldest brother, was always there for me. Anytime I had a problem I knew I could call him and he’d be there. We went through a lot together. In spite of tough times early on in life, he wound up creating the life and beautiful family he deserved. He was there for everyone. He would always take the time to check in on my boys when they were going through rough times. Something I will be forever grateful for. We are all better people for having known him. I can only hope my boys become the man Hank was. I am proud to be able to call him my brother. My life will never be the same, I will forever miss him. To Antoinette, Jason, Danielle and Adam, I am so sorry. Please know I will always be here for you. Love, Jeannette

  10. I didn’t know Hank personally, but I am a friend of his sister Jeannette. From her stories I came to know he is a special person that will be missed by many. She always spoke so highly of him, the way he valued people, the way he found time for and the way he touched their lives. I believe he is one of those people who made a difference. My sincere, heartfelt condolences to all his family, friends and co workers for the loss of such a kind, caring, special person. Josephine
