Hank was predeceased by his daughter Laurie Nylund and step-son Brian Nelson. Left to remember the good times are his daughters Mary (Greg), Pattie (Mike), Debbie (Ken) and son Patrick and sister Lorrain; his second family – partner and best friend Velma, Orrin (Susan), Keith (Deena), Sheila (Guy), Rhonda (Grant) and Donna (Rick); 26 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren.
Hank spent his early years in the Canadian Army, serving in Korea, the Far East and Cyprus. Hank spent many year with TimberWest Forest (Renfrew) as a blaster-driller. He loved hunting and fishing and in the later years snowbirding with Velma in Yuma, AZ, where they made many good friends.
No service by request.
We miss him dearly but he is now free of pain.
