Chad Hammons, 47, passed away on August 29th in his home surrounded by family and friends. He is now sheltered in the arms of God and was welcomed home to the praise of good and faithful servant. He was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in 2010 and he fought a hard battle and never lost his faith.
Chad was a faithful member of Minden Presbyterian Church where he served as an elder. He was employed by Fibrebond, Webster Parish Sheriff’s Department and served as a substitute teacher at Minden High School. No matter where he worked, he left a legacy of respect and friendship.
He loved the outdoors, hunting, and fishing and spending time with family and friends. Although Chad was father of the year every year, in 2013 KRMD recognized him as their Father of the year. His wife and children were the loves of his life.
Chad is survived by his loving wife of twenty-six years, Racquael, two daughters, Peyton and Alyssa Bass husband Alex; and two sons, Chance and Chase all of Minden; parents Charles and Lillian Hammons of Dodson; sister, Jodie Caskey husband Daniel of Dodson; In-laws, Jackie and Richard Roton of Haughton, Sister in-law, Rachael Culpepper and husband Mike of Benton, brother in-law, Richie Roton of Minden; and a host of nieces and nephews whom he dearly loved. He is preceded in death by maternal grandparents Dorothy and Clyde Richards, paternal grandparents Orville Hammons and Mary Capps.
