He was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

      During Dr. Hennessee's distinguished career as a physician, he was a pioneer in by successfully re-attaching a person's thumb in 1952.

      Dr. Hennessee received a commendation from The Honorable Otis R. Bowen, Governor of Indiana, for his diligent and compassionate care to the patients and the families of Central State Hospital.

      An interesting event during his career was removing a race car driver who was killed during the Indianapolis 500 race; actually going across the track under a yellow flag.

      Steve,
      I wanted to pass on my condolence with respect to your father passing. I'm sorry I couldn't make the service today. You may or may not remember, I met you through Bob Baker who lived around the corner from you on 57th & Central. Actually, the last time I saw you was at the Pepsi Coliseum during a Friday night skating session when we were sophomores at Broad Ripple High School.
      Regards,
