1971 Eric 2019

Eric Livingston Hancock

July 23, 1971 — October 26, 2019

Eric Livingston Hancock, 48, of Andrews, North Carolina, passed away on Saturday, October 26, 2019, at his home. He was preceded in death by his father, Jerry Lee Hancock, and grandparents, Lonnie "Bill" and Josephine Ledford. Eric is survived by mother, Barbara Hancock, brother Jeff Hancock (and wife Julie), daughter Gabrielle Hancock, son Aaron Hancock, nephew Kameron Hancock, and niece Shelby Hancock.
Although Eric is no longer here with us, his larger than life persona will not soon be forgotten. He will be remembered for his quick wit and endless knowledge of useful information (and sometimes not so useful but would spark interesting conversations). His wealth of knowledge came in handy when he broke down and had to fix the car with a gum wrapper. And on occasion got him into some trouble like when Eric and his brother, Jeff, made a black powder bomb using CO2 cartridges that made a huge hole in their grandmothers' field.
Eric had a very kindhearted personality and gave the best teddy bear hugs that made you know that he cared deeply. His true passion in life was his children, Gabby, and Aaron. They hold many great memories spent with their Dad like going on trips to Pigeon Forge, where they spent the entire day going to every go-kart track, at which Eric will remain undefeated. And countless rides on the motorcycle and days playing in the swimming pool. Eric always knew how to bring a big smile to their face, just by making a Yogi Bear impression, rapping a rendition of a Beastie Boys tune, or handing out some lines from Davey Jones' Locker. His nephew Kameron and niece Shelby also held a special place in Eric's heart. As Kameron was the first grandchild, Eric spent a lot of time making sure that Kameron was just a little extra spoiled. And in Shelby's eyes, no one was as awesome as her Uncle Eric; he could even make baby rabbits appear out of thin air.
In the spirit of one of Eric's favorite songs, "Life's Been Good," Eric's friends and family will gather for visitation on Tuesday, October 29, 2019, at the Townson Rose Chapel in Andrews, North Carolina. This time for sharing memories will be from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
