A Service of Remembrance for Mr. Alcock will be announced at a later date. Arrangements will be provided by The Ripley Funeral Home.
Mr. Alcock was born February 7, 1951 in Indianapolis, Indiana, the oldest child of Kathryn Raney Alcok of Indianapolis and the late Bill Alcock. He was a graduate of the Indianapolis Public School System, proudly served his country in the United States Navy and was employed in the construction industry by various companies in the Indiana, Alabama and Mississippi areas before his retirement.
Loving the rural way of life, Mr. and Mrs. Alcock moved to Blue Mountain twelve years ago and attended Grace Bible Church in Ripley. In earlier years he had a passion for old cars and was a member of various car clubs. He was devoted to his family, his church and loved to "piddle" with his carpentry skills. He will be missed by many.
In addition to his mother, memories will be shared by his wife of 14 years, Mary Kenney Alcock of Blue Mountain, a daughter, Stephanie Ford of Douglasville, GA, one son, Danny Alcock of Madison, OH, two sisters, Dena BeCraft and Debra Powell, both on Indianapolis, IN, two brothers, Dale Alcock of Houston, TX and Darryl Alcock of Indianapolis, IN and two grandchildren.
