Hank was preceded in death by his parents, Agustus A. and Lola B. Wing, and his in-laws Roy and Mabel Rushenberg.

Hank always wanted peace and for his family to be happy.  He donated his organs and tissue to Live On Nebraska.

We were so blessed.  Love and Peace Dad,

Your family and doggies.

    Hank’s wife Carol is a good friend of mine from High School. I was a Bridesmaid in their wedding. Hank was a kind and intelligent man. He will be missed. So sorry for Carol and his sons.
