Monroe - A funeral mass celebrating the life of Kenneth James Hancock, 57, of Monroe, LA, will be held at 11:00 AM Tuesday, May 14, 2019, at St. Matthew Catholic Church in Monroe, LA, with Rev. Mark Franklin officiating. Interment will be in St. Matthew Catholic Cemetery, under the direction of Mulhearn Funeral Home, Monroe.

Kenneth died May 9, 2019 at his residence surrounded by his family.

Kenneth was a retired Major with the Monroe Police Department, after 30 years of service. He was a member of the MPD bomb squad, dive team, and a field training officer during his stint of duty. He also served as a crime scene investigator, a patrol officer, and helped out anywhere he was needed. As he would describe himself, "He was just a simple policeman." He could also be found for the last 20 years or so, working off duty at Dillard's and St. Matthews Catholic Church until his illness. He had a peppermint and a smile for all he would meet!

Ken was a family man. He loved his family and his family loved him. He was a sixth-generation descendant of the Don Juan Filhiol family.

He was preceded in death by his daughter, Jess Anna Hancock; brother, Fred L. Hancock, III; and sister, Mauri Anne Hancock.

Survivors: wife, Paula Jan Hancock; daughters, Elizabeth Hancock and Anne Marie Hancock, and her fiancé Isaac Douget; parents, Fred and Maureen Hancock; in-laws Herbert and Marilyn Barefoot; granddaughter, Penelope Douget
