  • Sgt. Henry B. Amparan

    It is with great sadness for me to report that Henry "HANK" Amparan passed away February 15, 2012. Hank served as a 34 crew chief with HMM-363, The Lucky Red Lions in 67-68 and was one of the best. He served two tours in Vietnam. Hank was hospitalized from last July until his passing at the VA hospital in San Diego. He suffered from Leukemia (ALL). Hank was very involved in helping to achieve our successful last three Gatherings at Pensacola for The Lucky Red Lions.

    Our hearts go out to his loving wife, Dovey, his 2 sons and four step children. I understand Hank will be buried at one of the National Cemeteries close to his home. Will let you know about all arrangements when we have the information. I am very proud to have been able to call Hank a true friend.

    Condolences may be sent to:
    Mrs. Dovey Amparan
    29121 San Jacento Rd
    Nuevo, CA 92567

    With all respect,
    Larry Powell

        Truly sorry to hear of Hank's passing. Knew he wasn't well but never expected him to leave us this early. Served with Hank in RVN @ 363 but got to know him much more @ our gatherings in P-Cola and so enjoyed our beachside discussions! It's difficult to accept the fact that as days go by fewer and fewer of our fellow Marines are going to make the next reunion. Hank and I always said, "don't miss them (reunions) as you never know who won't make the next one. Semper Fi Marine, it was my honor to renew our friendship and I will truly miss your presence. Please give an OhRah to MGYSGT Curtis and our other squadron men gone before us. miss ya buddy, Bud
