passed away Sunday, January 8, 2023 at his place of residence with his wife by his side. He was born November 9, 1933, a son of the late Henry G. and Nita (Arata) Bandhold.
Hank was a graduate of Freeport High School (Long Island NY). While a student he was President of the schools General Organization (student council) and as an athlete he lettered in
both football and lacrosse. He was co-captain of both teams.

him in the sunshine.
