Along with U. S. Congressman E. C. “Took” Gathings (Nov. 10-1903-May 2, 1979) this cemetery includes two well-known professional athletes. Dave “Hawg” Hanner (May 22, 1930-Sept. 11, 2008), born in Parkin, played defensive tackle for thirteen seasons (1952 to 1964) with the Green Bay Packers. He was a member and key player on two NFL championship teams (1961 and 1962). Dr. Cary E. “Doc” Middlecoff (Jan. 6, 1921-Sept. 1, 1998) was a professional golfer and winner of the 1955 Masters and a two-time U.S. Open champion. A former dentist, Middlecoff won 40 professional golf tournaments and was the leading money winner for the decade of the 1950s on the PGA Tour. He was inducted into the PGA World Golf Hall of Fame in 1986 and was a senior contributor for Golf Digest and author of The Golf Swing.
