He was one of my best brother in laws that I was lucky to have in my life as I was growing up. He was always a gentleman not to mention what a good looking man he was and still is. Rest in peace Hank and I'll see you soon

Hank was an amazing man.  He was a special man too in that he never got mad at me especially when I threw up in his car when we were in Yosemity when I was about 7 years old!  He just made sure I was ok!
He is missed, cherished, loved and he will always be in my heart!
I love all of the Espinoza's!  Love Candy

Hank can be summed in three words "A wonderful person!!!" I remember him with his gentle smile and and easy going personality, and great sence of humor. We had a lot of good years in the Fire Department. Hank and I fought a lot of fires together, he was truely a role model and professional. I will miss him. RIP

Hank sent me the most heart warming Christmas card over a year ago.  We worked together when I first came on PAFD on Eng 1 and had a blast. Never laughed so hard in my life.  That card made me pay him a surprise visit on July 29th unfortunately when I got out of the car I got bad news about my brother in the hospital so we couldn't stay long.  He was a great man.  I'll miss him so much.

Hank and I spent many years together at Station1 on truck 1 and rescue 1. Those were he best years of my career. I enjoyed visiting him at his home several times since we were both retired I enjoyed each visit. I miss our weekly phone calls. Hank Cindy and I look forward to seeing you in Heaven.

He was a good man, who cared about others. A great Teacher who shared his firefighting knowledge with me as a Rookie firefighter. I enjoyed being part of the crew at PAFD station 1 my first year, as there was never a dull moment. Rest in peace my brother...

Hank was always making me laugh with his funny drawings of fellow firefighters and the crazy situations they'd get themselves into. What a great person to have had in my life and share such great times. Thanks for your friendship and guideance. Hoist one with Norm for me. RIP

Hank truly was one the best and most genuine people I have worked with in my almost 38 years as a fire fighter.  The caricatures he drew of some of his fellow fire fighters hung on the walls of our stations for years after he retired.  His jokes and sense of humor were legendary; the story of Hank and Rich Dauler's dog will live in the PAFD forever...
