Mr. Hank lived a colorful and full life. He had a passion for driving and law enforcement. He worked as a truck driver for many years. As a hobby he drove stock cars on the ARCA circuit and owned a garage and gas station for many years. He was inducted into the ARCA hall of fame in 2009. Over the years he worked in several law enforcement departments. He started in the Sheriff’s Department of Lucas County Ohio, later Cannon County Sheriff’s Department, and Campus Police Department at MTSU. During his time at MTSU he met and got to know many different music artists. His love of law enforcement caused him to be an active member of the F.O.P. for many years.
He also worked as a guard on an armored car with Wells Fargo. His love of cars carried on to helping a local car dealer and friend, Randy Vance at Vance Motors. Hank enjoyed joking and sharing stories with family and friends. If he had a choice about something to eat it would be anything chocolate. His nature was to be honest and to the point, even if you didn’t like it. He was very strong in his beliefs. He was raised in the Church of Christ and was a member of the Smith Grove Church of Christ. Hank was involved in many different community projects through the years, he wanted to give back and help the community. He was a former board member for Center Hill Cemetery. He and fellow officer Bill Avera started the neighborhood watch in Cannon County. He was instrumental in providing Christmas baskets of food for needy families in the community. After he transitioned to living at the Woodbury Health and Rehab Center he kept his sense of humor. The staff and fellow patients got a kick out of how he would joke and say, “Hey Baby” to people he encountered.
