    Hank was a great guy in my Japanese class last fall. He told me hilarious stories of Tokyo that helped me make the decision to study abroad this year. Hank, I wish I got to know you better. RIP

    Hank lived on my floor in Furnald a couple years ago, and he seemed like a wonderful guy. I wish I had gotten to know him a bit better. Rest in peace, Hank, and to his family and friends, I am extremely sorry for your loss.

    Hank was in my Gateway Lab group freshman year (and we actually all got along, believe it or not). Rest in peace, Hank. Condolences to his family.

    I'm Hank's sister and I must say, aside from the few ridiculously stupid and disrespectful comments, this board is really great. It is nice to know he affected so many people. You all were lucky to know him. Thanks to whomever posted this.
