Hank’s family coordinated a Memorial Service at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 7, 2019 at the Mapleton Community Center (County Road CW in Oconomowoc). Please join them from 3:00-4:30 p.m. on Sunday at the community center to gather and reminisce. This park was selected since this was where Hank’s last “feel good” day took place.
