Edward Hancock

Edward Hancock
A native of Dallas, Texas, Mr. Edward Lonnie Hancock, was born on June 23, 1923.

On September 6, 1943 he enlisted in The United States Navy and served until January 19, 1946. He then began a career as an air traffic controller that culminated in thirty years of service.

Ed and his late wife, Maxine were married for 49 years and were charter members of the Canongate 1 Country Club. He became a golfer with a par handicap and continued to play up until three years ago.

He was a realtor and Associate Real Estate Broker. He was very proud of his mental acuity even as he approached 100 years.

He is survived by his step-daughter, Rachel Ann Shattah , the daughter of his first wife, Gledys Louise Gardner, who he considered and always introduced as his daughter. He had a picture in his wallet to remind them both that she was his daughter.

A graveside service will be held at 4PM Sunday, at Riverside Cemetery for invited guests.
