Hank was a WWII Vet serving as a police officer with the Marine Corps stationed in Guam from August 1946 to July 1948 and loved to tell the many stories of his adventures there.

He was always a hard worker starting as a young teenager, holding many jobs, and never stopping until his retirement from the U.S Postal Service.

His greatest hobby was the love of the chess game. He would challenge himself with his electronic chess boards, with others at the community center, and anyone else who was up for the challenge.
