    From the interactions I had with Hank in the workplace, I think he was a REALLY REALLY NICE GUY.
    I had been on Hank’s team over the past year, where we all talked on the phone nearly every workday but unfortunately had not yet met in-person due to distance and covid constraints. Hank made a positive impression on me, and we will miss the smiles he put on our faces with his witty sense of humor and the occasional ukulele playing in the background. Warm regards, sunshine, and happy memories.

    Hank and I worked closely for over two years at West Fraser. His work ethic and devotion was admirable. He was a kind person and spoke profoundly of his wife Charlotte and son Dillon and beloved hometown of Mississippi. I recall a week long work trip we had to Georgia and his ukulele playing during the evenings. In this sorrowful time, I would like to extend my heartfelt condolences to Charlotte, Dillon and the rest of the family
