Clyde Hancock

Clyde Hancock, 69, passed away November 3, 2020 in the home he shared with his daughter, son-in-law and grandkids in Woodinville, WA. Born in Poplar Bluff, MO, on June 16, 1951 to Bill and Betty Ann Cox Hancock, Clyde grew up in Knobel, AR. A graduate of Knobel High School, he was a member of the FFA and Beta Club. Clyde earned his Bachelors of Science degree in Agriculture from Arkansas State University in 1972.

He enjoyed a 35-year career in agriculture as a Farm Service Manager, crop consultant, and farmer. He loved working with his family. He worked at Farm Service Inc. with his father and brother for many years before taking up farming with his son, father-in-law, cousins, and uncles.

Clyde was an accomplished Do-it-yourselfer. He completely rebuilt and remodeled the family homes in Knobel and then Peach Orchard taking empty shells of houses and turning them into warm loving homes.

Clyde had a mischievous streak. He was often the mastermind behind practical jokes at work and at home. He had a great sense of humor and loved to share it with everyone.  No one had better Dad jokes than him.

Clyde was a good neighbor. From doing home improvement projects for elderly neighbors to offering advice on crops and fertilizer to driving a friend to a doctor’s appointment Clyde was always willing to help anywhere he could.

Clyde was a loving father and enjoyed spending time with his kids and grandkids. He always made time for the things that were important to his kids. He attended every ball game and practice, helped with homework, and went on college visits. He believed knowledge and education were vital and frequently quizzed his kids on math and science topics. He was the dad-taxi until his kids learned to drive and never complained about late-night pickups after football games or movie nights.

Clyde was an avid hunter enjoying duck and deer hunting primarily but also hunted pheasant on occasion. He was interested in studying the Bible and would often listen to podcasts by favorite preachers while relaxing in his La-Z-Boy.

Clyde was a true friend, helpful neighbor, and loving father who will be missed by all who knew him.

He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Angie Hancock and Chris Pezzee of Woodinville, WA; son and daughter-in-law, Curtis and Jackie Hancock of Arkansas; and Grandchildren, Lily Pezzee, Ian Pezzee, Erin Hancock, and Taylor Hancock.

He was preceded in death by his parents Bill and Betty Ann Hancock and twin brother Clinton Hancock.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Hosea Cemetery in Knobel, AR, at a later date.
