Birth: Mar. 16, 1917
Ohio, USA
Death: Aug. 6, 2006
Monterey County
California, USA

Although Hank burned little oil in the pursuit of academics, his long list of activities shows that his years at the Academy were not idle ones. Possessed with that easy indifference that was characteristic of his company, he more than once demonstrated an extraordinary ability for flying into a great calm under stress of writs. Significant of Hank's admirable qualities was the number of friends he made at the Academy. Reasons for his continued success were hard work, modesty, patience, and above everything, reliability.
(1940 Howitzer, The Annual of the Corps of Cadets, United States Military Academy)
