My condolences to Hank's family on your loss. I had the privilege of working with Hank for many years at Diebold. I will always remember his wonderful sense of humor; he was such a gentleman, and generous in sharing his knowledge and expertise. We loved seeing Hank and Theresa dance at the Tmken Alumni dances. Thoughts and prayers to his family.
