RIP Hank
« on: March 07, 2019, 07:35:49 PM »
I don't know if this is the right spot to put this or if it's been said before.
Hank was the man that ran the Baker mills at most of the shows and the shoot out. I've learned that he passed away yesterday in a logging accident. I always enjoyed spending time with him and his wife at the different shows around the country. I will truly miss seeing him. Prayers to his family in their time of need.

RIP

Met him a few times at shows and watched him saw.  Old boy knew how to open up a log.

Never spoke to the guy but I do remember the Baker demos at the shows. Sounds like another good man down, so sad.

Hank will always be remembered as a "gentle man" as he was described above.  I only met him a few times but had the opportunity to talk with him for a while as we lived nearby.  Great sawyer and human being.  You will be missed Hank!

I was saddened to hear of Hank's untimely passing. I was able to spend some time with him and his wife at the Paul Bunyan shows. I had the privilege of having dinner with him a couple of times and really enjoyed discussing his sawing and work working projects. Hank was a well spoken, hard working family man. He was a great Sawyer and woodworker. He will definitely be missed. 
Thoughts and prayers for his family.

RIP

I never met the man but had the privilege of building with some lumber he sawed and also did some take offs/ cut lists that people were going to have him saw out for them. A very respected hardworking man in the local community that produced a quality product fairly.

Condolences sent to his family
