The club was recently notified of the passing of Richard Hancock, enthusiastic modeller and friend. Many of the Peterborough rc and modelling community will know Richard through his work at Lakefield Hobby and his years of radio control boating. Chris White, owner of Lakefield Hobby, sent the following notification to the Young’s Point Radio Control Flying Club;
“It is with great sadness I must inform you of the passing of Richard Hancock. Richard suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm on Feb.21. He never regained consciousness and died Friday, peacefully with his family beside him.
Richard was a loyal employee, a very talented modeller with a heart filled with kindness. You will be sorely missed my friend.” Richard will be remembered for his easy going positive manner, willingness to help fellow and new modellers, and his broad hobby knowledge. Whenever dropping by Lakefield Hobby when Richard was working, you were always greeted with a warm hearted “how are you today” The members of the Young’s Point Radio Control Flying club extend their heart felt condolences to the members of Richard’s family.
