I first met Hank at the Brockville General Hospital when he was young and eager to help patients and other staff such as the nurses like me. His young vibrant and friendly personality easily attracted others to him, and his unusual interest in knowing others, along with his great friendliness and ready laugh were magnetic for others. It is my honour to offer Mark and his family my sincere sympathy and also to reflect with a very long smile on a real Gentleman named Hank who lived a life of caring and helpfulness. Sincerely , Millie Craig

Mark, Coco and Matthew: As we grieve together may we always remember that he was there with a listening ear, and words of wisdom. He was the caretaker of our family, always there for everyone.
May we always remember the good times , the laughter, the Voerman sarcasm, the fish fries on the island , the wonderful food and not to forget the wonderful voices of you singing with my brothers.
How I will miss my weekly phone calls.
May you rest in peace Hankie and know how much you are loved. God bless.
Love Sister Ann (and Dave)

Mark, Coco and Mathew: My condolecences in the passing of your father - my Uncle Hank. He was a wonderful man and I like to picture him sitting on the island with a "cold one" in his hand, maybe listening to some Kenny Rogers The Gambler.
