Uncle Hank was a second father to me. Growing up he and my father were first cousins and very close, closer than my father was to his own brother. They joined the Marines together during the Korean war. Uncle Hank was always at our house. He was a proud Marine and a master carpenter that taught me a great deal. I will always remember his smile and laugh as we thankfully had many of those!! Since my father passed in 1994, Uncle Hank was a comforting presence. Being around him made me feel like I was with my father as well. I am happy he is at peace now and has joined the rest of our family that have gone before him, especially his daughter Sandy who was taken from this earth far too soon. But they are together again surrounded by all the loving family and friends. RIP Uncle Hank,..Semper Fi

My grandfather was a hero to me. He taught me right from wrong and instilled a strong work ethic. He taught me how to fish. We took several fishing trips as far as to Quebec. We shot hoops for hours in the backyard where he told stories of Pistol Pete Maravich. We watched baseball games where he would predict the next pitch. He was proud of his Service to his Country as US Marine. He was an honorable man and will be missed dearly by his loved ones. I’m proud to be one of them and that he was my grandfather. May he rest in eternal peace.

You will be forever in my heart and all our memories. I am grateful that I had 45 years of my life as you as my stepdad. You will be so missed but I am grateful that you are now at peace with God. Nikki.
