RICHMOND —

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

He was born Dec. 23, 1926, in Ashland, Kentucky, to George Jefferson Sr. and Celestia Mable (Dye) Hancock, both of whom preceded him in death. He was also preceded in death by his wife, Mary Luella (Carpenter) Eplee Hancock.

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.

Also surviving are his grandchildren, Kelsey Hamilton, Jaryn Davidson, Kristen Edgins (Joey), Kari Bailey (Matt), Rachael Eplee, Annie Eplee, Christopher Eplee, Ryan Eplee, Taylor McIntyre and Jared Drum.

Funeral services for Dave will be conducted noon Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013, at Oldham, Roberts & Powell Funeral Home with the Rev. Harry Revel officiating. Burial will follow in the Richmond Cemetery. Visitation will be from 10 a.m. until service time Saturday at the funeral home.
