Home was Everett! But how he loved to travel state -side Maine/Vermont/NY City /Las Vegas. He frequently traveled to visit family in Los Angeles and in New Orleans.. He loved engaging with people and they loved engaging with him.

The sharpest family critic of ones presence. Presented often in an unskilled way yet meaningful way that only a family member would understand.

Rest In peace with all my great ancestors.

We are so very sorry to hear about my cousins passing. We talked a lot on the telephone and he always said, "Oklahoma!" when I called. He had a friend here in OKlahoma and said he would come and visit some day but that day never came. My cousins are so important to me as I live so far away and sad that I cannot visit like I would like. Hank will be greatly missed. He was very friendly and loved by a lot of people. I love and miss all our cousins and pray for them every night.
