“Hank” was born on September 27, 1989 in Moose Lake, MN to Rocky Kroon and Debra Petry. He lived in Askov his entire life and attended East Central High School, graduating in 2008. Henry went to work for his uncle at JLK Underground burying cables for five years and then went on to Arnt Construction as a heavy equipment operator for the last nine years.

Henry loved many things: anything outdoors, deer and turkey hunting, fishing, riding motorcycle, operating equipment, his trucks, his family and his two nieces. He was such a polite, friendly, caring, proud, likeable man and touched many hearts. He will forever be greatly missed and loved.
