Ronald L. Hammack

May 8, 1941 — April 20, 2024

Ronald Lee Hammack, 82 of Tipton and formerly of Kempton died Saturday, April 20, 2024 at The Waters of Tipton.  He was born in Sheridan, Indiana on May 8, 1941 the youngest child of Eliza and Esther (Mann) Hammack.

Ron retired from Delco Electronics in Kokomo after 27 years of employment.  He was best known for his over 50 year career as the owner and operator of Hammack’s Tree Service.  He was a hard working man, extremely strong as he tended to his arbor business.  In his down time, he enjoyed watching the Colts, often a NASCAR race and even the Cubs as their season progressed.  If you knew Ron, he could be described as “a collector of all things”.  He greatly loved his dog Jack and took him everywhere.  He was a regular at the Jim Dandy, meeting friends for coffee every day.

Survivors include his children, Renee Grimme (Mike) of Tipton, Virgil Gross (Louann) of Kokomo, Davina Burns (Frank) of Kokomo and Chuck Hammack of Beaumont, Texas.  His grandchildren include Kelsey (Dylan) Reagan, Seth Grimme, Brandy (Mark) Shelly, Jacob (Heather) Johnson, Whitney (Joe) Arbuckle, Sarah and Libby Gross and Patrick Corwin.  He has several great-grandchildren.

Ron was preceded in death by a son, Danny Gross and siblings Lois Riddle, Florence Reagan, Bryon Hammack, Forrest Keifer Hammack, William Elza Hammack, Francis Hammack and Wilbur Hammack.

Funeral services will be at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 25 at Young-Nichols Funeral Home with Rev. Larry Simms presiding.  Burial will follow at Kempton Cemetery.  Visitation will also be on Thursday from noon until service time.
