It saddens my heart to have received this message late about Hank’s passing. He was an amazing individual/supervisor to work for. I met Mr. Beattie in 1994, he was teaching the Security Guard classes in E.O.C where I received my certifications in his class. I will forever be grateful to him for giving me my first job with HELP USA Bronx Morris which I still remain as an employee. My condolences and prayers go out to his family.
