Hank Lee Fuchs

December 6, 1965 — February 2, 2024


Hank Lee Fuchs, age 58 of Temple, went to be with our Lord peacefully on Friday, February 2, 2024, surrounded by his family. There will be a Celebration of Life Memorial Service on Friday, March 1, 2024, at 2 pm at Harper-Talasek Funeral Home in Temple.

Hank was born on December 6, 1965, at King’s Daughters Hospital to mother, Vickie Stewart (Wilber) and father, LeeRoy Fuchs (Patsy). He grew up in Temple where he spent most of his time with his cousin Terry Meske fishing, golfing, playing dominos, and cards at their grandparents’ house. Hank and Terry were more like twin brothers than cousins. In his adult years, Hank worked as a manager at several local food and retail establishments. In 2001, Hank began his career with C.R. England until he retired in October due to his illness. During his time with England he earned several awards, including logging over 2 million safe miles. During this time Hank got promoted to a trainer/instructor and became a spokesperson for healthy habits on the road.

Hank always said that he was so blessed in life. He was an avid Bass fisherman, and we know that every fishing spot is missing him. Hank enjoyed fishing and golfing with his family, but he also enjoyed going to the Texas Ranger and Baylor Bears games with Christy, Ashley, and their mother. Hank always had a positive attitude and a great sense of humor. Even though he was sick he still found a way to help others or go out of his way to say, “Have a good day”, “Drive safe”, or “Be safe out there”.

He was preceded in death by his daughter, Misty Lee Fuchs; his mother, Vickie Stewart; his grandmother, Lee Slattery; and grandparents, George and Mary Ola Keeton Fuchs.

Hank is survived by his daughters, Christy Hensel (Joshua), Ashley Harrison (Dale), and Amber Fuchs; his father, LeeRoy Fuchs; his sister, Divinity Meyers; four grandchildren, Kadence Hensel, Natalie Hensel, Connor Ames, and Bradin Ames; cousin, Terry Meske; and many other aunts, uncles, cousins, and close friends. 

The family appreciates all the doctors and staff at Baylor Scott & White Hospice Care that provided such awesome care of Hank in his final days. 

Hank chose to have his body donated to science in hopes that he could help someone else.
