Obituary for Richard B. Hankie

RICHARD B. HANKIE, 67, of Yellow Springs, passed away unexpectedly in his home on Tuesday evening, October 16, 2018. He was born in Springfield on February 11, 1951, the son of the late Richard and June (Robinson) Hankie.

Rick retired from Antioch Publishing following 10 years of service. He was an avid musician and guitar and music collector. Rick enjoyed gardening and growing plants and was able to fix anything mechanical. He will be remembered for loving to make people laugh and his soft-spoken, yet witty personality.

Rick is survived by his children, Julia Spence of Urbana and Carrie (Aaron) Campbell, Erin Hankie and Nathan (Noel) Hankie, all of Yellow Springs; AND nine grandchildren, Tristan, Raven, Mia, Owen, William, Peyton, Reagan, Corey, and Travis; a great grandson, Arith. Also surviving is a sister, Carol Cross (Paul Hernandez); brothers, James Hankie and Roger Hankie (Gregory Strojohann); and nieces and nephews, Sasha Hernandez, Sunshine Hankie, Kenneth Null, and Henry Walker.
