Hank was so special. He lived with us for a year, 1970-71. He was amazing, bright, creative. I left Wyoming yet tried to keep in touch with him and what he was doing over the years through family members that were still in touch with him. He always had a heart of of gold and was a good person and friend to all that knew him. I will miss you Hank.

We are saddened to hear of Hanks death. It was a shock. I (Bev) and my brother Jeff Bryan, grew up with Hank. He was more like a brother than just a friend. Although we live in Wisconsin, we did stay in touch. He will be missed. Rest In Peace LiL' Bro.
