Henry H. Hancock died May 16. He was 85. He earned a law degree from the University of Michigan in 1957 and joined the law firm of Burch Porter & Johnson. In 1965, he partnered with William Farris to create the Farris Hancock law firm (now Farris Bobango). Hancock also spent 18 years teaching law students the finer points of trial procedure at the then Memphis State Law School. A remembrance and celebration of his life was held Tuesday at the University Club. The family requests that memorials be sent to the Church Health Center or a charity of their choice.
