Frederick (Butch) Hammond

Born: November 27th, 1931

Passed on: February 27th, 2018

It is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our father, grandfather and friend, Frederick (Butch) Hammond, age 86. Leaving the arms of his loving children, he reunited with his best friend and wife, Margaret Hammond (nee Littlejohn) on February 27, 2018. Also predeceased by his parents, George and Ellen Hammond, brothers Doug, George, Bill, Walter, Charlie and sister Margaret (Green). Leaving to mourn his children Walter (Mary Brennan), Peggy Combden (Glenn) and Lisa Stagg (Jeff) along with his dolls, granddaughters Abby, Rachael and Rebecca Hammond, Cassie and Evelyn Stagg and "da boys", Jack and Sam Combden. Saddened by this loss are nephews George Green (Christine), Jack Green (Beverly), niece Glennys Bonia (Adrian) and a wide circle of family and friends, including special friends Dave and Anne Benteau. Dad worked a variety of jobs including Great Eastern Oil, the Bell Island Mines, various mechanic shops, and even a stint in the Naval Reserves. But his favourite times were spent in his shed, repairing chainsaws and lawnmowers and chatting with the Torbay crew who would stop by for a smoke and to have their saws sharpened. Spending years doing and undoing renovations at his cabin in Ocean Pond was one of his favourite summer activities that he loved to share with family and friends. Watching his children and grandchildren grow up at the cabin brought him untold happiness. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Caul's Funeral Home in Torbay. Visitation will take place on Wednesday 7-9, Thursday and Friday 12-4:00 and 7-9 with Mass of Christian Burial to take place from Holy Trinity Church in Torbay on Saturday, March 3rd, 2018 at 10 AM. Cremation to follow. Thanks are extended to the staff of North Pond Manor, where dad lived for several years after mom’s passing. The staff and residents enjoyed his company as he enjoyed theirs. Thank you to the 3rd floor staff and commissionaires of the Caribou Veteran’s Pavilion where dad spent his last months. He truly enjoyed his time there and we were touched by the caring treatment he received every day. Very special thanks to the staff who were with us during his final days; the compassion that was shown to us all has touched us more than you will ever know. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in dad’s name to the Caribou Memorial Veteran’s Pavillion - Recreational Fund or the Dr. Jack Hand Legacy Foundation.
