Mark G. Hancock

Fishers - 59, passed away after a long illness June 25, 2018. He was born in Fort Wayne to the late Richard "Chip" and Arlene Hancock. As a young child, the family moved to Indianapolis where Mark grew up and spent the rest of his life. He was a graduate of North Central High School and received his Bachelor's Degree in business from Ball State University where he was a member of Theta Xi fraternity. Mark then followed in his father's footsteps with a career lasting over 31 years with AIL. He became a state general agent with a flourishing business in which he received many awards and recognition for his success.

Mark became an expert golfer, with a passion only a few could admire. Not only did he play every course in town, but traveled the country to play on renowned golf courses. Football was an obsession and Mark was a season ticket holder since the Baltimore Colts came to town in 1984. In later years, his football buddy was his daughter, Ali - they never missed a game and attended one Colts Super Bowl game in Miami together. Not many people experience a "fly-in and drop" fishing experience in Canada; however, Mark was lucky enough to do it many times with the same group of great friends. Around the time of 2003, Mark got into the Harley Davidson craze and purchased an Anniversary Black Fat Boy and later a Colts blue Ultra Classic. He traveled the country on his Harley, however, at home, his only ride-a-long to charity rides or on Sunday afternoons was Ali. Mark attended the last 54 years of the Indy 500 - his last this past May was also with his side-kick, Ali. All in all, Mark loved life even until the end; with all his obstacles, he never gave up.

Mark is survived by his wife of 24 years, Becky Hancock; daughter, Ali "Alscabals"; brother, Vic Hancock; and many life-long friends.

Thank you in advance to all who knew, cared, and loved Mark, however, we will honor his life privately. Please no flowers - you may send donations in his name to the American Cancer Society. Final care and arrangements are entrusted to Shirley Brothers Fishers-Castleton Chapel.

I'm so sorry I just found out about Mark. So many fun memories starting back in 1967 when we moved to Ivy Hills 6 doors down from the Hancock's. Many years of many memories. You always made me laugh ~ I was just talking about 6th grade and Mrs. Smith's class and all you "boys" having the biggest crush on her! Richard Renzi getting stuck in the wall!
My deepest thoughts and prayers to Becky & Ali.
Miss you Mark...

I am so sorry for your loss! I haven't seen Mark in many, many years but when I saw this on the FB 40th reunion site I felt like I had been hit. We were great friends in high school and he always had my back. I am grateful to have known him and will treasure the memories of our friendship. My heart and prayers go out to all of his family and friends

Mark gave me my initial opportunity in the insurance field when I changed careers. Was a good guy and taught me a lot of techniques in selling insurance. Was really shocked when I saw his obituary in the paper yesterday. Prayers for the family and now your on your eternal life ride.

Mark had the best attitude on life. I really enjoyed talking to him and seeing him at games. A great cousin to have been associated with.

Pam and I got to have a couple of cocktails with he and Ali at the Super Bowl. A real treat.

Sad to have another Hancock gone.

I know one day we will see each other again. Met you some 31 years ago and laughed with you many times at SGA meetings, conventions and more. You always had the greatest smile and much happiness in you. You fought well and you deserve to Rest In Peace now.

Where do I start? Mark was my mentor in the insurance business and has been a friend ever since. We spoke or texted frequently. The most humble and generous man I know. I know he is in a far better place now but my heart aches for Becky And Ali. I have met you a few times but don't know if you remember me or not. Just know that I never heard anyone ever say anything bad about him, which is hard to find in this business. He was and is a good one and will always have a special place in my heart for him. He taught me all i know about this business and he changed my life. Love and Miss you Mark!
