In 1961 he married the love of his life Donna Andal and they resided at the farm north of Star City for 36 years when they decided to move to Melfort.
In 1966 Gaylene was born and in 1991 the one and only grandson Brandon was born.

To the Coopersmith family. Please accept my deepest sympathy on Vern's recent passing.
Growing up in Star City I have many great memories of watching Hank playing first base for the Brooksby Rockets fastball team, as well as curling third for the Ken Campbell team in the Northern Men's Curling Playdowns.
Hank was a great guy and always took the time to talk to me when I would be back in Star City for visits. .
Enjoy your special memories of Hank!

We hope your many treasured memories will help you through and give you a smile as you reminisce happier times. I also am thinking of the times and memories we have together and of course of Uncle Hank’s great laugh and kind spirit. Thinking of you.

Love Shawna and Carly.
