I was so fortune to have been given my first job by Mr Hancock when he was manager of White Stores. Having worked several more years in accounting before retiring last year I must say I never had another boss that was like him. He was such a pleasure to have known and worked for. My sincere condolences to his wife and entire family. He is not gone, just out of sight.. May you feel God’s comforting arms around you now and always.

Mr. Hancock was our neighbor for many years and he could not have been a nicer person to have next door. He and his wife, Delores, were especially kind to my parents once all of us kids grew up and moved away. My praise for his tireless and faithful wife, Delores, who cared for him so lovingly for so long. My condolences to her and to her entire family. Much Love to you all, Dean Luttrell
