HANCOCK, Orville William Peacefully at Grace Manor in Ottawa on Thursday, July 16, 2009 in his 95th year. Beloved husband of the late Lorna McGill, dear brother of Muriel (Mrs. Stan McRae) of Lindsay, Frances (Mrs. Bill Graham) of West Lorne, and the late Ruby Minnes. Orville Hancock was born in the rural area of Lindsay, ON. His education in the early years were centered around the activities at the Lindsay Collegiate. In the middle of the depression, he enrolled in the Peterboro Normal School for Teachers. Little did he know, that he would continue in that field. He survived a sprint of teaching in four rural schools, namely Kinmount, Omemee, Prince Albert, and Levack (Earning him a Principalship). He taught grades 1 to 9 with an average of 15 to 25 girls and boys on a salary of $500 to $1000. He also began studying a few correspondence courses from Queen's University. In 1944, with his newly married wife, he moved to Ottawa to be in a class with the Ottawa Public School Board. With anticipation of a bright future he enrolled with Carleton University to earn his degree. In 1952, he was appointed Principal of First Avenue School. This was followed with further principalships of Cambridge, Churchill and Carleton Heights. In that interval, he earned his Master's Education degree from the University of Toronto. After retirement in 1975, he and his wife travelled in countries, almost all of Europe, British Isles, Mexico, United States and Canada fulfulling his love for adventure. Cruising and wintering in Florida satisfied his desires and ambitions. In the latter years, poor health kept him close to home.
