DURANT, Okla. — Gerald D. Hankins, born Jan. 31, 1948, in Bokchito, passed from this life Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012, in Durant.

Gerald lived most of his life in and around Duncan. Gerald was preceded in death by his loving mother, Dollie Jane Lambert, and his step-father, Lopez Lambert.

He is survived by three children: Lance Hankins and Michelle Hudson of Corpus Christie, Texas, and Lara Lundy of Irving, Texas. He is also survived by four brothers: James G. Hankins, Jerry C. Hankins, Richard L. Lambert and Steven F. Lambert.

After Gerald retired, he spent much of his time looking after his chickens. Late in the afternoon, he could be found standing under the trees with his chickens around his feet, waiting to be fed. A memorial will be held at a later date.
