Hank was a member of the Union Valley Baptist Church, Stonewall, OK. Hank loved the Lord and was sure of his Salvation through his belief in Jesus Christ.

He was married to Virginia Baxter in 1967 and was very happily married for 47 years. Hank was never the same after Virginia passed away on April 8, 2015.

Hank joined the Army in 1942 and served 3 ˝ years, mostly in the South Pacific. He was a highly decorated veteran of WWII receiving numerous medals including the Bronze Star. Hank’s troops were the first ones into Nagasaki after the atom bomb was dropped there. As a result, he suffered from radiation poisoning throughout his life.
