Jr was my friend and co=worker. There was nothing I asked from him that he wouldn't do. He left an indelible mark on our kids in sports at the JC Housing Authority. I loved him and he will be missed!

I just wanted to lift your spirits a bit and let you know I am thinking of your family. I moved into the same neighborhood and met Junior around 1965. We went to elementary school together and became good friends. We spent a lot of time at the Parks & Rec Center and all over the streets. I joined the Army - moved off and we both grew up. Some people you just don’t forget-Rest with Angels

I never had the pleasure of meeting you, but my mama Ruthie Hammett adored you and Karen. She constantly speaks of her "70s friends" and I just know she is completely heartbroken to hear of your passing. May you be resting in the arms of our Lord & Savior, may your wife and children find peace and comfort during this difficult time. Love and Prayers being sent your way.
