Mr. Hancock, a native of Virginia, married the former Janet Fransisco, of Norwalk, on May 4, 1968, at the old Lutheran church in Norwalk.
They are the parents of Brain Hancock, of Tempe, Ariz.; Kevin Hancock, of Norwalk; and Travis Hancock, of Norwalk. They have four grandchildren.
Mr. and Mrs. Hancock are retired. They credit the secret of their long marriage to “putting up with each other’s crap” and talking things out. Cruises, vacations, and having their children have been some of their most enjoyable experiences. The couple, who met through mutual friends, enjoy being together, no matter what they do.
