RICHMOND —

John David Hancock, 86, of Richmond, passed away Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2013, at the Hospice Compassionate Care Center of Richmond.

He and his wife, Mary, owned and operated Tates Creek Market for over 30 years. He was a WWII U.S. Marine Corps veteran and had a great love for flying his airplane and spending time and working outdoors.
