Kenneth D. Hancock, age 75, of Stanton, passed away peacefully at his home on Saturday, May 21, 2022, under the loving care of his family and Kindred Hospice.

Ken loved watching the Detroit Tigers, trout fishing at the Cannon Creek, reading his Louis L’Amour books, traveling with his wife to Florida, listening to and singing along to old country music, hunting for deer, pheasants, rabbits, and squirrels. After working for Oldsmobile and General Motors for 30 years Ken retired and began his second career of driving cars for Bookwalter Chevrolet.

Blonk; brothers, Jim Hancock and Robert (Diana) Hancock; his best friends, John Bookwalter, and Bill & Sherry Farrington; and his beloved dog, Millie.
