I'll always remember all the times Uncle John was filming or showing recordings from his 8mm camera, before the ease of digital cameras and smart phones he was helping us all get a glimpse of ourselves as others saw us, and preserving treasured memories to relive. along with his sweet, loving presence and that gentle, mischievous laugh, I'm grateful for the way he brought the future to us. Thanks Uncle John! Extra love and hugs to Aunt Sue, Brian, Corey, and David
Our deepest sympathy to the entire Hammer family in the loss of their, husband, father, and brother. I will always remember with a smile on his face and he always made it to every Hammer event that I can remember.
John was part of so many awesome memories - a very special person indeed!
Uncle John was a kind, gentle soul. We will remember him with love and strive to live the rest of ours with his same spirit.
Uncle John...thinking of you and your wonderful family. I am sad to see you had to leave too soon. You always were such an easy, going loving person. Love your niece and family!
Missing our gentle Brother, his loving presence, and his acceptance of all.
What a nice picture of John! We will always remember him. Through example he taught the importance of family and friends, the joy in simple things and hope through rough times. Peace and Love
