Following time in the Army, Hank went to St. Louis and worked for Monsanto Chemical Co. He worked for 38 years as a chemical operator. He lived with his brother and family. His nephews were like sons. On weekends they would spend time on the farm in Glen Allen. He enjoyed hunting and fishing, and shared his secrets with Kevin, Lynn, and Michael.

He leaves to mourn his passing, the three nephews he helped raise: Kevin (Lori) Myrick of St. Louis, Lynn (Susan) Myrick of Yukon, Okla., and Michael (Marlene) Myrick of Indiana, and numerous other nieces and nephews.
