To the Kiers family ... please accept our condolences during this time of sorrow. When I (Jeff) was 12 years old, I bought my very own bicycle from Hank when he (and Rick) still ran Kiers Electric in Woodstock, Ontario. I think that they imported from Holland. It was a good bike ... and quite heavy too. May God bless you all.

Michael Highfield - January 27, 2021

Sorry to hear of the loss to your family! I don’t know any of the family but I wanted to say that I enjoyed the conversation I had with Hank. He shared a room with my father a couple weeks back at NHH. Hank is the bravest man I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet, he had accepted death on its terms with the support of his family. Inspirational!!!
