Charles Maurice Hammond, 80, passed away quietly in his sleep January 28th, 2024. Born in Needles California to Charles and Gladys Hammond.
He Graduated from Needles High School in 1961 and married the love of his life, Linda in 1963. The restaurant industry brought him to the Sierra Vista area in 1966 where he and Linda put down roots and began a family. Through his hard work and perseverance, it was not long before they owned two restaurants in the local area one in Sierra Vista and the other in Douglas.
They raised two children, Allan and Misty. He was a loving father who actively participated in parenting process, coaching sports teams and building gymnastics bars in the backyard.
Illustrious Brother Charles Hammond, 33° was also actively involved with Free & Accepted Masonry in the South-eastern Arizona region; he served as the Worshipful Master of King Solomon Lodge No.5 in 1990 and Huachuca Lodge No. 53 in 1991.
The summer of 1992 brought a new era for the Hammond family with the birth of their first Grandson, Brady. Charles became a grandfather, mostly known as "Pop" to the family, a role that he would certainly cherish. As good as he was as a father, Charles leaned into this new role with passion. When the grand kids were young, he enjoyed sitting by the chimenea roasting marshmallows, attending sports events, gymnastic and cheerleading events, and especially looked forward to the annual Easter Egg hunt. As they got older and branched out into different interests, he made it a point to make each of them feel special.
Aside from Grandparenting and Free Masonry his other interests include gardening and bird watching. He was very knowledgeable in these topics and created a wonderful space in his front yard to admire both. Charles was a quick study and enjoyed delving into topics that he found interesting.
He will certainly be missed by friends and family. Charles is survived by his wife, Linda. His two kids, Allan and Misty; and his six grandchildren; Brady, Brandon, Paige, Mickellie, Jon, and Morgan.
