Bro. Hancock was great friend of our family. I loved his stories and we loved to hear him sing. He put his heart into everything he did. He will surely be missed and we loved him.

‘Pops’ as we called him, was like family to our staff on 1East. His laughter, jokes, stories, phone calls, and his company will be missed. We are praying for peace for the family.
