Edward Joseph Hammond of Wildwood, FL went to be with the Lord on August 3, 2023.

Ed was born in Van Wert, Ohio to Mary (Steele) Hammond and Joseph Donald Hammond on January 14, 1942. He had many happy memories of his life there with extended family. He was in Van Wert High School’s graduating class of 1960. In Ohio, Ed discovered his love of the outdoors, fishing, gardening, golfing, his faith, and his family. He married his beloved and devoted wife, Jeanne (Franks) Hammond, on November 2, 1974. While in Van Wert, Ed worked at Federal-Mogul Corporation, but when the family moved to North Carolina, he began work with Cooper Bussmann.

Ed was an industrious, hard-working man, and a source of great pride to him was earning his associate’s degree in Health and Environmental Engineering, becoming the first in his family to earn a college degree. Ed worked in that field, with the Goerlich Corporation in NC, until his retirement in 2005. Upon retirement, Ed moved to Florida, and being a man who couldn’t sit still, took up work as a security guard at Continental Country Club and Plantation of Leesburg.

Ed always enjoyed meeting new people: making friends wherever he went. He remained active in the Church and counted it a joy to spend as much time as possible studying God’s Word. He was blessed to become a minister and an elder, and he felt especially blessed to facilitate Bible Study groups. Ed was always loving and welcoming to his fellow man.

Ed is preceded in death by his parents, his brother, Gary, and his sister-in-law, Carolyn Hammond. Ed is survived by his wife, Jeanne, son Jeremy, daughter Jamie, and son-in-law Jeremy Russell. He also leaves behind his great loves – his grandchildren: Emma, Henry, and Shiloh. May his spirit find peace in the arms of the Lord.

Services will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, August 18,2023 at Oxford Assembly of God, 12114 U.S. Highway 301 N., Oxford, FL 3448. In lieu of flowers preferred memorials in Ed’s memory could be mailed to Oxford Assembly of God Missions, PO Box 9, Oxford, FL 34484 or Cornerstone Hospice, 601 Mariposa Way, The Villages, FL 32162

    Ed was a man of God that shared his time with others in need. Faithfully he would visit my father weekly to share stories. He and Jeannie were such a blessing to my dad and gave me respite during those visits. He was a friend that never gave up on anyone or himself. His positive attitude inspired me and his sense of humor brightened my days. Laugh with God now my friend.

    Praying God's peace and comfort for the family. I'm thankful for the time shared with Elder Ed, a man that loved God, God's Word, and God's people. There was no doubt about his authentic and infectious love he showed towards his beautiful and loving wife Minister Jeanne and their family. Sleep on sleep on, see you when the Lord return.

    Peace and Power
