Ron Garrett and Henry Sweatt
Ron Garrett lived in Owensboro, KY until June of last year when he moved to Hancock Park Subdivision in Lewisport. Garrett quickly fell in love with the home.
“I feel like I am the luckiest man on the face of the earth,” Garrett said. “I get to see deer out here, coyotes, raccoons, and rabbits. I live in the country in my back yard and the city in the front.”
Garrett says living in Hancock County is far different than living in Owensboro.
“I lived in Owensboro for 15 years,” Garrett said. “When I go back now I feel like it is a jungle.”
Tim Gooch of Hancock Real Estate and Auction told Garrett about the home, so he checked it out. Developer Lee Miller built his home, as well as several others in Hancock Park, and it cost around $200,000. Garrett said Miller plans to build three more there soon.
“Lee Miller is top of the line,” Garrett said. “He is a good man.”
Garrett works for the state as a home care provider. He currently works with two adults, one being Henry Sweatt. Henry works at the bingo hall on East Byers Avenue and U.S. 231 in Owensboro.
The COVID pandemic interfered with his two clients for some time.
“We spent about a year without them going to their programs,” Garrett said.
With the pandemic starting to ease somewhat, their routine slowly returns to its normal ebb and flow.
