Bobby Hancock was kind and caring, humble and grateful, thoughtful and loving. He loved nature, all animals, and was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed boating, fishing, and hunting.

Most of all, he loved his family and his church family. He was a longtime member of Yeamans Park Presbyterian Church, where he served as an Elder, and a member of the Building and Grounds Committee for many years.

Mr. Hancock is survived by his loving wife, Cheryl, with whom he recently celebrated a 50" wedding anniversary; his son and good friend, Jonathan Robert Hancock; his daughter-in-law Melissa, whom he claimed and loved as a daughter; his granddaughter, Lillie Hancock, whom he adored; his brother, Wayne Hancock, two sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Gary and Gloria Robbins Davis, and Ray and Deborah Orvin.
