Russell "Rusty" Hancock Obituary

Russell “Rusty” Belmont Hancock, passed away peacefully at Prince George Healthcare on March 17, 2024, in Georgetown, South Carolina. Rusty was born June 19, 1954, in Sumter, South Carolina to Patsy and Russell Bunyan Hancock.

Rusty grew up in the Myrtle Beach area attending Myrtle Beach public schools and graduating from Myrtle Beach High School in 1972. Rusty was a master electrician and worked in his trade until health issues prompted his early retirement in the early 2000s.

Rusty was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying camping, boating, hunting and fishing. He was an extraordinary storyteller, and his much-embellished versions caused many an audience to roll in the floor in laughter. He was a friend to many and will greatly be missed by all. Thank you, God… for only making one of him!

He is survived by a son, Christopher Hancock of Myrtle Beach, two brothers, Ronnie and Billy Hancock, both of Myrtle Beach.

A celebration of life for Rusty will be held April 7, 2024, at the Fish Shed at Caledonia Golf & Fish Club at 3:00 P.M. Attendees are requested to bring the beverage of their choice; appetizers to be provided.
