WILLIAM A. HAMMACK
William A. Hammack, 55, Vernon, Fla., went on yet another journey on Jan. 31, 2000. He is survived by his parents, William and Oma Hammack, his sister, Olivia and her husband, Jon Haines, who was Bill's best friend, nieces Marcie and Deanna, Aunt Annie Mae Porter, and special friends, Dr. Jim Hord, Lori Finley and Cindy Cottrell. Bill graduated from high school and went on to earn his masters' degree. Bill worked in the mental health field in Bay County for many years. Then his passion turned to computers and many of us have computers up and running because of Bill's help. He loved his family, friends, and dogs, and was absolutely passionate about all of his causes, real or imagined. The last few years of his life was spent enjoying his walks in the woods, his Christmas decorations and waiting for the azaleas to bloom and sharing all of these times with his mama and daddy. He was tough, stubborn, obstinate, opinionated, but he was especially an old softie. He was a genuine redneck and like Bill always said "there's nothing more dangerous than an educated redneck." We hope that where he is now has airplanes and tractors; a post office to argue with; and politicians to toy with! Services will be held today, Feb. 2, 2000, at 2 p.m. at Peel's Funeral Home, 301 E. Evans, Bonifay, Fla., (850) 547-4144.
