My loving brother, James Harrison Hammond, age 53, of South Webster, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday January 24, 2021, at his home. He was born in Morristown, TN. James moved at an early age with his parents to their old home place in South Webster, where he lived most of his life. After graduating from high school, James worked in home building and improvement. He was good at his craft. James was full of ideas on how to make existing homes and landscapes better. He was also mechanically inclined. There wasn’t much he couldn’t do when he set his mind to it. James could trouble shoot and repair almost anything home and automotive-related. James was forced to retire early. James couldn’t achieve all he was capable of in part due to a couple of car accidents. James was deeply loved and cherished by our close family and will be sorely missed. James impacted our lives greatly and in some ways, he had no idea. The loss of my brother James is tremendous.
James is survived by our parents, Paul and Naomi Hammond of South Webster; myself, David Hammond a (Martha) of Wellston; daughters, Mary Jo Toland (Roger), Mykal Amber Piguet, both of Scioto Furnace; their mother, Tammy; grandkids, Brailey and Ryker Toland, Robbie III and Miley Piguet; nephews Rusty, Aaron Sowards, Larry Skaggs, Nick Aldridge, great nephew Brenton Moon; nieces Mandy (Kris) Coughenour, Sara (Josh) Moon,Emma Moon, great nieces Emma Moon Madeline and Sophie Coughenour; aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Graveside services will be 2:00 PM Thursday, January 28, 2021, at Scioto Furnace Cemetery. Visitation will be from 1:00 to 1:45 Thursday at D.W. SWICK FUNERAL HOME in South Webster.
