Hank was a devoted husband, dad and grandpa who enjoyed fishing, nature, traveling, the casino, a good prime rib, pinochle and cribbage, western movies and audio books. He was a hardworking self-made man with an entrepreneurial spirit. Following his retirement as a truck driver for Continental Bakeries, and with the help of his wife and son Andy, Hank began a successful wholesale pet supply business known as Fine Feathered Friends. In 1993 he sold the business and moved to Cherry Valley, California where he lived the remainder of his days. Everyone who knew Hank was blessed by the experience.
