Arrangements and Obituary - Bruce Hankins





Bruce Hankins, age 60, of Lewisburg, passed away suddenly on June 6, 2015.

A native of Dunmor, KY, Bruce spent the majority of his life in Middle Tennessee. A true horseman, Bruce has been involved with many greats such as The Pushover, Kody’s High Roller, Big N Rich, Yao Ming, and countless others.

He is survived by wife, Judy, of 25 years; daughter and son-in-law Nicole and Chris Coffey; grandson Landon Coffey; and sister Stacey (Matt) Jordan. He was preceded in death by parents Bobby and Nancy Hankins.
A memorial service will be held at Circle E Guest Ranch in Belvidere, Tenn., on Wednesday, June 10 at 2:00 pm. Casual attire. Condolences/remembrance can be sent to Circle E Guest Ranch, or donations can be made to the Marshall County Horseman’s Association Scholarship Fund.
