Henry “Hank” F. Sullwold, 83, of Stella, Nebraska was born on July 16, 1934, on a farm in Richardson County, Nebraska to August “Gus” and Dorcas (Wilks) Sullwold.  He grew up in Richardson County, Nebraska before moving near Bern, Kansas.  His family returned to Richardson County where Hank graduated from Bratton Union Consolidated High School with the class of 1952.

On March 29, 1956, Hank was united in marriage to Joan Johnson at the United Methodist Church in Table Rock, Nebraska.  The couple lived in the Bratton Union area before moving to Summerfield, Kansas where Hank worked at the Lumber Company.  Hank and Joan later moved to Stella, Nebraska where Hank farmed, drove trucks for D&M Produce, and drove school bus for Stella schools.  While living in Stella, Hank served on the village board, was a boy scout master, and was on the Stella Rural Fire Department for 25 years.  He loved camping, fishing, hunting, sawing wood, and gardening.  Hank loved visiting with friends and family and having wood cutting parties.  He truly enjoyed sitting on the porch.  Hank was always willing to help anyone and had a passion for helping people.  No matter what, his family was all very special to him.  Whether it was learning mechanics, helping their fishing, hunting, or camping, or teaching them to respect each other, he loved his family.  Hank was proud of his boy scouts and the school bus kids and seeing each succeed in life.   

Hank passed away on Tuesday, March 13, 2018, at the Colonial Acres Nursing Home in Humboldt, Nebraska having reached the earthly age of eighty-three years, seven months, and twenty-five days.

Hank, what a onery fella, he was like a second grandpa to me... I will really miss him coming into the store yelling "Does anybody work here!!??" He always had to give you a little guff every time he seen you... Prayers to the family during this time, and Hank don't go revving up that tractor to much in Heaven!

Hank and Joan were very good neighbors to my folks. They enjoyed many Ice Cream get-togethers and friendship. They enjoyed seeing the boys grow up. Sorry for your loss. He will be missed. There was always a joke and a smile from "Hank"

To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss of your loved one. As you cope with your loss, may you find comfort in knowing that God promises to put an end to all the things that have plagued mankind for centuries including death (Revelation 21:3,4). May these promises from God's word, the Bible give you comfort now and real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.
