We studied together at Benedictine University in Lisle, IL. We are the fourth cohort of a program in the School of Education, to prepare high and middle school science and math teachers . He taught Chemistry at Community High School District 94, in West Chicago.
It was a pleasure to be around Hank; he had a sense of humor that indicated his high intellectual level.
We have lost a great man. I was happy today to be around people that loved him so much.
He is an inspiration for me, I want to be as a teacher, and as a human being, as good as he was.
What touched me the most, was his little granddaughter; coming up front to tell us, that he was the best grandfather.
