March 10, 1971 ‒ November 15, 2015
LEXINGTON: After a long and brutal illness, Tommy Hammond went to be with his mom and dad in heaven after passing away Sunday evening, November 15, 2015. He was just 44.
The son of John and Patricia (Stitt) Hammond, Tommy was born in Mt. Gilead on March 10, 1971 and was graduated from Northmor High School. A talented mechanic, Tommy enjoyed working on motors.
He loved the outdoors and spending time with family. Many weekends were spent camping with family, gathering around bon fires, four wheeling, and dirt bike riding. Tommy never met a stranger and had a laugh that was contagious. He had many close, lifelong friends like Brian and Tina Myers of Johnsville, and especially Sonja Boyle, Mike West, Mikey West, and J.R. and Joshua Spears all of Johnsville, who cared for Tommy in their home and carried him in their hearts until his passing.
Tommy is survived by two daughters Michelle Hammond of Chicago and Heidi Hammond of Johnsville; two grandchildren Aria and Alexandria Hammond of Chicago; sister Thresa (Alan) Wenger of Johnsville; two brothers Terry (Linda) Hammond of Johnsville and Monty (Peggy) Hammond of Bellville; step brother Paul Hammond and step sister Ocianna Insco both of Huntington, West Virginia; numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.
Along with his parents, Tommy was preceded in death by his brother Alan Hammond and grandparents Carl and Thresa Aeiker.
A graveside service will be Sunday, November 22, 2015 at 1 p.m. in Shauck Cemetery, and a celebration of life service will be held at a later date.
The Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home is honored to assist the Hammond family with cremation services. Memorial contributions to assist Tommy’s family with cremation expenses may be mailed to the funeral home. Please make checks payable to Snyder Funeral Homes.
Tommy’s family would like to thank the staff at Hospice of North Central Ohio for their kindness and compassion.
