Henry “Hank” Francis Kalkbrenner, 76, of Pine Bluff, crossed the finish line of Life on Sunday, June 7, 2020, at his home. Hank was born December 26, 1943, in Omaha, Nebraska to Harriet Belle Johnson and Harry Eugene Kalkbrenner. After his father’s return from the Pacific after WWII, the family moved back to Pine Bluff in 1946. Hank graduated from Pine Bluff High School in 1962. Soon after graduation, he went to work for the Cotton Belt/Southern Pacific Railroad in Pine Bluff, retiring in 2001 after serving as General Foreman in Pine Bluff and later Kansas City, Missouri after the Union Pacific merger. Hank married Joyce Marie Bolin in Sherrill, Arkansas on July 2, 1965. Joyce passed away after 50 years of marriage in 2016.

Hank enjoyed being part of the lives of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was active in his church at White Hall United Methodist Church, the VFW Auxiliary, the Arkansas MOPAR Cruisers, and Friendship Auto Club. His passion was taking his cars and trucks to shows and races.
