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. Though horses were a huge part of his life, nothing was more important to Bruce than family. He was able to spend the last two years trail riding, celebrating, and enjoying life surrounded by those he loved most.

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.
