In Memoriam - Hank Allard


Below are tributes to Hank Allard


Maryanne Allard, Hank's wife, companion, and mother of their 3 children


Hank Allard was my loving husband for 51 life-filled years before his passing in August, 2019. For the last 20 of those years, Hank lived with the uncertainty of prostate cancer. Hank dealt with this difficulty with grace and, as he always did, focused on his family, friends, faith, and life’s work.


MDG was a big part of Hank’s decision path and mission in life. His dedication to compassionate homecare for the sick and elderly gave much satisfaction and meaning to Hank’s life. I am forever grateful to MDG for the friendship, support, and effectiveness of this wonderful organization.

As president of MDG during much of Hank Allard’s participation with our organization it is with many emotions that I pay tribute to Hank Allard, as a member of MDG and as a loyal friend. 


Hank served MDG in many capacities, but primarily as the lead of our sponsorship relations. He had remarkable success in bringing diverse companies to our meetings, and convincing most of these to become sponsors of our activities. This success was based on Hank’s sincere love of MDG which he conveyed in a unique, non-threatening and affable manner to any possible person or company who he felt would benefit from a relationship with MDG. Duplicating Hank’s unique talent in this arena will be difficult if not impossible to achieve.   

Through our mutual dedication to MDG, Hank and I became good friends. Hank fostered my golfing activities, but more important, brought me and MDG to his extensive contact network, most highly focused on the use of technology in a wise and sophisticated manner to care for elders. This important mission will long survive Hank's sad demise which we mourn, but his legacy will make MDG a beacon for combining medical and biotechnology with humanistic, personal and rewarding goals, which we rejoice.

A Dear Friend of MDG


The passing of Hank Allard, MDG Leader, long time friend, business and personal neighbor, has been a very special time. 


First, he was a devoted husband and father of three. For those who are reading this message, and knew Hank, he is the model for all to emulate at MDG. If you knew and worked with Hank over the years, you saw the memories and extraordinary dignity he left in the hearts and minds of members in this diverse volunteer association of professionals. Those thoughts are precious.  


If you did not meet him, he always stood out to the rest of us at MDG.  He was uniquely approachable by all. People were never put off by him despite his striking tall, friendly, handsome, extremely well-informed appearance. He was a listener to everyone he met, as he typically networked thru an evening crowd of MDG attendees.


He did his homework - he walked in with a computer sales background (GE, Intel).  He became a leader at MDG. He volunteered, he supported. He respected the diverse scientific medical interests and backgrounds, particularly the needs of the eldercare community.


Hank knew how to ‘tell a story’ on stage. The well regarded reputation of MDG Programs was enhanced when he led or worked with others. He initiated, organized, or implemented, and gave his talent and his time unselfishly to a ton of MDG programs over the last 8-10 years.   


Exceptional volunteer, kind and open teammate, hands on trusted leader – our model, friend.
