Wayne H. Hammond

Wayne H. Hammond, 79, of Hopkins, died August 31st, 2019. He was a son of the late James Henry and Catherine Schuyler Hammond. Wayne attended Eau Claire High School and the University of South Carolina. Following his retirement from Bell South in 1995, Wayne began a long and optimistic battle with cancer. His passions were God, Family and the great outdoors. He never met a stranger, or a fish he didn’t like! Wayne expected everyone to laugh at his jokes and listen to his words of wisdom. Our “Pop Wayne” will leave a big hole in the hearts of many.

Survivors include his wife, Anne “Bonnie” Fickling Hammond; children, William Hammond (Trish) of Springhill, TN, Timothy Hammond (Claire) of Bowling Green, KY, Amanda Mills of Columbia, SC, Troy Fickling (Lisa Cunningham) of Charlotte, NC, Candy Limehouse-Clow, of Columbia, SC; his beloved grandchildren, Madeline, Lily, Elijah, Christian, Schuyler, Sean, Brock, Marlowe, Faffy, Brooks, Trey and London. Together, Bonnie and Wayne enjoyed spending 38 years blending their loving family, extended family and friends together.

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his sister, Carole Hammond Champey.

The family will receive friends at the church prior to the service beginning at 10:30 o’clock. A private burial will follow the service in Greenlawn Memorial Park.
