Hank was a great teacher and mentor. Never forgot one of his students. His mild manner and insight into students was uncanny. He helped all students in so many ways. I saw Hank at Lincoln park zoo and he remembered me. He was one of a kind. Love you and I will miss you..

I will always have great memories of Mr Adamowicz as my teacher at Bridge. Life has many obstacles and challenges that we need to learn to cross.....even if you failed my times. I see Mr. Adamowicz as a man that truly cared about his students. He went over and beyond to make sure I had all the tools in my tool box not just to get in to Lane Tech but to succeed in Life. Because of him I believed that I can accomplish anything. I would always keep in touch and bring him up to date of everything going on in my life and career. He felt so proud of the man I have become. God bless you.....till we meet again one day Luis G Pesantez

He was my absolute favorite teacher of all times. He taught me to believe in me, always encouraging. When things happened in my life he taught be to never give up on me and my dreams. I posted his obituary on the Norman Bridge Facebook page, and the comments are a testament to this man. He believed in his students - teaching us, and believing we can accomplish anything in life. RIP Mr. A.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My favorite all time teacher. He never gave up on me, encouraged me and no matter what happens in life he taught me never to give up on me! His smile, his elbow patches on his sport coats will be his trade mark even in heaven. This man - no matter what he was up against in budgets with CPS, found away to still get his teachings across to many students. I posted his obituary on the Norman Bridge Facebook account, the many tributes I am reading is a testament to this man on how he believed in many of us students at Norman Bridge. May he rest in peace.

My deepest condolences to Hank's family! A most dapper and delightful neighbor, I enjoyed celebrating the wedding of a neighbor seated next to Hank under a tent in the garden next to his home! It won't be the same without a wave and a smile across the yard line!!!
