Tommy Hamm

Tommy Hamm

May 22, 1996-June 8, 2022

 

Tommy - Nature Hamm’s spirit flew away Wednesday, June 8, 2022. Tommy “walked” into this world at 10 pounds, 3 ounces on May 22, 1996, and told everybody, “Hey, what’s up!?” His momma told everyone this and they didn’t even know that she was telling the whole-hearted truth. Tommy didn’t know a stranger. He was happy, carefree, nature loving and loved immensely. He was a lover through and through. He made sure his people knew he loved them.

Tommy didn’t leave any of us behind, he is always with us and he will always make sure that we know that. He made the hardest decision of his life. Life is like a beautiful tree or flower you see … they leave an imprint on your soul and spirit. That’s what Tommy did to everyone he met. He lives on in every person who knew and loved him. He would want us to remember him as the spontaneous, energetic, goofy, loving person that he always was. Especially when you needed that person. He was everyone’s person.

 

If you’re struggling with thoughts of ending your life on this earth, reach out to someone. There will be a hand there reaching back to take a hold and help you stand up and walk on. Carry Tommy with you everywhere you go because he is there. When you hear your favorite song or see something cool, think of him and remember all the good times and the outpouring of love we all shared with Tommy.

There will be a celebration of life and gathering of family and friends Saturday, June 18 from 2 p.m. until the time of the dinner at 4 p.m. at Waynetown Christian Union Church, 1472 N. C.R. 650W, Waynetown. All are welcome to come celebrate Tommy’s life, share stories and stay for the meal. Sanders Shoemaker Funeral Care of Waynetown entrusted with care.

In lieu of flowers, donate or volunteer at your local animal shelter or plant a tree in Tommy’s memory.  Memorial donations may be given to the Animal Welfare League of Montgomery County, 1104 Big Four Arch Road, Crawfordsville, IN 47933.

Hazel Marie Staggs

Hazel Marie Staggs

Aug. 14, 1938-June 9, 2022

 

“Well, Howdy Do? A simple phrase from a simple woman who lived simply but her impact left on others was significant. An only child, born in Detroit, Michigan, to Edward Bedwell and Francis Teague Bedwell. Hazel was raised by her mother and step-father (Estel Ray Reed) in Parke County. In her school years, she met her sister in spirit, Mavis Joan Sheets; they remained friends throughout their lives. Hazel married Floyd Leslie Demoret and together shared 20-plus years of marriage and two children Phyllis Jean (Gerald) West and Michael Ray (Paula) Demoret.

She began her life-long career as a short-order cook working at the Snacker Grill. During her four decades there she would work the 4 a.m. to 2 p.m. shift Monday-Saturday. She would amaze you as she stood behind the 10-stool countertop, single-handedly waitress, do dishes and successfully sling food for the counter customers and the waitressed tables. She became the cook, mother, grandmother, friend, confidant and public safety officer to everyone who walked through the door. If you were from the area during the 60s-90s then chances are you have a story that involved Hazel and the Snacker. Whether a fond recollection, funny moment, or questionable behavior (beginning “after the bar closed”), she left her mark on so many in our community. After divorcing Hazel married Clarence Pearl Staggs. She shared in the lives of his children John Pearl Staggs and Dee Stabler. She finished her working years out at Digger’s and the H&L Cafe. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends, eating out, camping, and playing cards. She was loved and will be missed.

Hazel was preceded in death by her parents; son Michael; husbands; and son-in-law Gary.

She leaves behind daughter Phyllis; step-children, John and Dee; grandchildren, Jennifer (Patrick) Busenbark, Clinton (Alana) West, Drew (Stacy) Demoret, Dustin Demoret, Nathan (Ashley) Staggs, Rowan Staggs and Mason Lockard; great-grandchildren, Nickolas, Brennden and Reese Busenbark, Destiny (Jacob) Jenkins, Kierra Gill, Emmitt Jones, Raelyn West, Daxton and Callon Demoret, Serenity, Emma and Kayden Staggs and Mac Lockard; and great-great-grandchildren, Oliver Jenkins and Paislee and Ledger Gill.

Hazel chose cremation and a graveside service with Todd Randle in the Cremation Garden at Oak Hill Cemetery North at 1 p.m. Wednesday, June 22 for anyone who wishes to say their goodbyes. Hunt & Son Funeral Home was entrusted with care.
