Jack T. Hanberry, Sr.

Jack T. Hanberry, Sr., age 88, of Cadiz, KY, passed away Sunday, July 10, 2016, at Centennial Medical Center in Nashville, TN.  Jack attended Canton School where he adored and was mentored by his teacher, Miss Fannie Cunningham Wallace.  He graduated in 1942 from the 8th grade. As a young man, he lived in Trigg County, Kentucky with his parents Flave and Bessie Hanberry, both of whom he gave credit for many of his abilities to work with his hands and fix things like cars, toys and road construction. He proudly served in the US Army during the Korean War.  Jack served for over 30 years on the Trigg County Road Department in various road construction assignments where he loved every citizen of Trigg County and was appreciated likewise. The main road leading into Lake Barkley State Resort Park was constructed by him, Joe Cossey and Eddie Holland.  He always said if the state department had let him and his co-workers pave the road they would have build the road straight into the lodge but the lodge wanted a more site seeing road for the tourists that would enter the park. Once when asked what was his favorite saying, he replied, "God Put me here on this earth to accomplish a certain number of things right now I'm so far behind I won't ever die." In 1992 he retired from the Trigg County Road Department and began a part time summer job at the Trigg County Recreational Complex.  He was a member of Pleasant Hill Pentecostal Church in Trigg Co., KY and in 1967, Jack was organizing trustee member of the New Pleasant Hill Pentecostal Church, of which he has served as Beginners Sunday School class teacher for over 30 years; Song Leader and numerous other supporting roles.  Jack and his wife, Betty promoted the establishment of the church's Fellowship Hall and provided financially for its inception. Jack continued to share with others through his love of church and country, serving as member of the Gideon's International. through the camp at Cadiz; and was a member of the American Legion Post 74.  He also participated in selected other community activities. Especially attending all the area antique tractor pulls every weekend; the annual Trigg County Ham Festival and attended with his wife many of the Golden Pond reunions.  Jack Hanberry loved his family, his community, and life; he was an ambassador for the Lord. Because he was able to bring forth the best in others, he had probably shown regard and courtesy to you at some point in time. He would have told you he appreciated your concern today.
