Daniel Hammond was known for his contagious laugh, and he loved spending time with his family and friends, said his son, Don Hammond.

“He knew how to have a good time with friends. Some say too good to tell,” he said.

Daniel Hammond, 75, of Hobart, died July 20. He was a retired member of Operating Engineers Local 150 and VFW Post 5365

He was preceded in death by his wife, Jeanne Hammond.

Don Hammond said his father was known for his excellent concrete work he did around Hobart.

“Many of the driveways and sidewalks of family and friends have been done by him,” he said.

He loved animals and loved his race car, playing cards with his wife, and sitting around the campfire with his sons and grandchildren, Don Hammond said.

He was a natural storyteller.

“He had lots of stories and would tell them every chance he got,” he said.

He loved spending time in his garage and looked forward to his friends coming over for a beer.

He was a kind and generous man, always willing to give his last dollar or the shirt off his back, his son said.

“If you had the pleasure of knowing him, you knew that he was a very giving man,” he said. “He opened his home to his family when they were in need. He was loved by many.”
