Jack V. Hancock

Jack (Jacko) Hancock passed away at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan on the evening of April 25, 2019 – surrounded by family and friends.

He was born on November 16, 1943 to Jack and Kathryn in Detroit, Michigan. He was a remarkable athlete, skating for the Junior Red Wings, and was also the loving husband of his dear wife Cathy for 44 years. His infectious, encouraging and content personality will be deeply missed by his two daughters Lindsey and Courtney and their husbands the two Nates. Jack was very proud of his three grandchildren; Paige, Luke and Emery. He is survived by his younger brother Gregory Hancock and was preceded in death by his younger sisters Jill Hancock and Nancy Singleton (Hancock).

Jack will forever be remembered for simply loving life and bringing immense joy to those around him. He enjoyed playing golf, soaking up the sun on warm days, watching/listening to any Detroit sports team and spending his free time with his loving wife Cathy and his dear friends and family.

He lived his life loving the Lord with all of his heart.

    So sad and so very sorry to hear about Jacko’s passing. I am truly fortunate to have grown up with Jacko spending countless hours with him playing baseball, street football and ice hockey. A truly great athlete and one outstanding hockey player with an extraordinary humble disposition and great sense of humor.
    Jacko will always be my other big brother who indeed left a mark on my life which I will be forever proud of.
    Rest In Peace my friend, you will be forever missed!

    I fondly remember helping Jack coach our daughters soccer teams from grade school through high school.
    He was the driving force behind all of their successes. The girls won many championships and Jack made sure that the team stayed together and the girls had fun!
    Jack was a great guy and a very humble man.
    May God rest his soul and comfort his family.

    I am so very sorry to hear this. Jack was the “All American Boy” and I have such fond memories of him from high school. I was fortunate to see and talk with him at our 50th class reunion. He was the friendly Jack I knew. I knew he will be missed by many.
