(Rachel) Ombach, Roy, Utah; Janae (Ron) Brown, St. George, Utah and foster son, Arnold (LeAnn) Tolino, Bountiful, Utah.

   Hank worked many years at Beacon Metals, Inc. in Salt Lake City, Utah.  He was always a hard worker and a perfectionist.  Education was important to him and he was an example of professionalism and preparedness.  He had a brilliant mind for business and math.

   He was a collector of stamps, coins and clocks and always liked a nice tie and matching hankie in his suit pocket.  He played the violin, piano and organ and had a great singing voice and loved to listen to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

   He is survived by his wife and children, 14 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren as well as his sister, Joyce Walker, Sandy, Utah, and many beloved nieces and nephews.
