Stuart Wayne Hancock

April 19, 1960 ~ September 21, 2013

For a man that no one was ready to lose, Stuart was loved by so many people and he will be missed dearly. It is still a shock for all of us, that we will never hear his signature laugh again. Stuart, age 53, has left us, due to a tragic motorcycle accident near Orting, WA, on Saturday, September 21, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. Stuart Wayne Hancock was born April 19, 1960 in Wenatchee, WA, where he grew up and spent most of his life. He was an Eastmont High School graduate of the class of 1978. Stuart had always lived his life to the fullest. He has done just about everything there is, no limits. He was a commercial fisherman in Westport for many years, he was a logger and a certified welder. He was currently working for Chelan Dock Company. There was never a person he came across without leaving them with one of his adventurous stories and his infectious laugh, he always left a mark.

He is survived today by his parents, Jim and Marian Hancock; two brothers, Scott, James and wife, Sally; sister, Kathie with husband, Dave Letnes; and special friend Diana Martinez and her two daughters, Lexi and Talea. He is also survived by his loving and supporting nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and lots of cousins.

Stuart was the definition of young, wild and free, and he wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.

A Celebration of Life will be held for Stuart at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, September 28, 2013, at his brother’s house located at 2035 Number 2 Canyon Road in Wenatchee, WA.
