Shocked and dismayed to find out that our long-time storage customer is gone. We've had some great conversations about the world in general, and downtown Fall River in our youth in particular. Always a pleasure to see him. He will be missed. So sorry for his family's loss. You meant so much to him.

Hank, I was saddened to learn the other day that you had left us. My thoughts and prayers are with you and I know some day we'll meet again and talk muscle cars. To Sue, Greg, and Andrea I offer to you my deepest condolences. As he was your husband and father, he was my friend and I will miss him.

Hank was my first boss at Bostitich. I admired him and learned so much from him. I considered him a mentor and friend. I will always remember his kindness, laugh and his smile - it was contagious. Condolences to his family and friends. He shall be missed. Jeff

Hank became a much loved cousin the day he married my dear cousin Sue. Whenever we had the chance to visit “home” a visit with Sue and Hank was a must do. We will always have wonderful memories of Hank in our hearts. Love to all of the Casper family.
