Clarence Hancock, of Niles

April 23, 1938 — May 1, 2020

Clarence L. Hancock, 82, of Niles, passed away Friday, May 1, 2020, at his home at Brentwood of Niles.

He was born in Niles, on April 23, 1938, to the late Henry and Sallie (Dove) Hancock.

After high school graduation, Clarence went on to serve his country proudly in the U.S. Air Force. Once Clarence came home from the Air Force, he then continued his education where he received his bachelor’s degree in pharmacy and then had a very successful career of more than 38 years with the Bayer Company as a research scientist.

Clarence was a man of simple pleasures and was most content when he was golfing or just simply taking a stroll.

He is preceded in passing by his parents; and his nine siblings, Henry Hancock, John Hancock, Robert Hancock, Howard Hancock, Virginia Mady, Anna Reid, Jean Shaeffer, Eileen Huston and Evelyn Jeffries.

In keeping with Clarence’s wishes, cremation has taken place, and he has been laid to rest with his parents.

Condolences, memories, and photos may be left for Clarence’s family and friends at BrownFuneralHomeNiles.com.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Brown Funeral Home, in Niles.
