Hendrik "Hank" Johannes Ombach, 91, passed away July 8, 2018. Born in The Netherlands, he moved to the U.S. in 1959, making his permanent home in Utah. He became a U.S. citizen in 1964 and was always an extremely proud and patriotic American, but always remembered his Dutch heritage and his family's service and sacrifice during World War II working in the Dutch underground.
Hank worked many years at Beacon Metals, Inc. in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was a member of DHI’s Utah Chapter. He was always a hard worker and a perfectionist. Education was important to him and he was an example of professionalism and preparedness. He had a brilliant mind for business and math.
He was a collector of stamps, coins and clocks and always liked a nice tie and matching hankie in his suit pocket. He played the violin, piano and organ and had a great singing voice and loved to listen to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
He is survived by his wife and children, 14 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren as well as his sister and many beloved nieces and nephews. Services were held July 13 in St. George, Utah. Visit www.hughesmortuary.com to leave condolences and to view the obituary.
