Sad to announce death of Anthony Denman

It is with great sadness that we have learnt of the death of Antony “Hank” Denman in a tragic motorcycle accident.

Hank, 44 was involved in a head – on collision at East Stour on the A30 , near his home at Sturminster Newton on the evening of June 4th. Hank was airlifted to Dorset County Hospital and died a short time later.

Hank was one of life’s great guys and always gracious and overflowing with energy. The tributes on http://forums.mxtrax.co.uk/showthread.php?t=243502 reflect not just his popularity but the genuine affection everyone who knew him had for the big man.

Kevin Harris from Masco worked with Hank on several major projects and spoke with him minutes before he set off on the last fateful journey. He and Kevin were always plotting new schemes and they shared a wicked sense of humour. Everyone who had any dealings with Hank will find it difficult to comprehend how such a wonderful spirit could be replaced.

Antony was a stonemason by trade and an entrepreneur by nature. He worked independently and with Chris Daniels, Scott Lewis and haulier Pete Manning in recent years after working for Ken Bolan at Talisman with John Robbins.

Hank and Chris worked avidly as supporters of www.memoproject.org , the mass extinction memorial observatory project involving the creation of a bell to forewarn of the danger to threatened species.

Steve and Carl Horler (Frome Reclamation) recall Hank as a wonderful friend.
One of his biking friends said that it was with tears in his eyes that he recalled Hanks fond memory, it is with heavy hearts that we shall remember him as a very decent and gentle man.

We send our sympathy to his wife Kate , their children and the family from his many friends in the Architectural Salvage industry.

The funeral will be held on Monday 15th June, 14.30pm at Hazelbury Bryan (DT10 2ED). The wake will be held at Pigsty Cottage. All friends are welcome.
