I had Mr. Hammond as my art teacher for my entire school years at Southern Fulton where I graduated in 1975. He was an asset to art, and teaching.

I am so sorry for the loss of this fine teacher.

He was fair to all. Whether you were a great artist or a beginner, he taught you how to express your best. And he helped with so many plays, and stage performances.

He earned his place in Heaven.

I was blessed to have him as a teacher.

I Know Many people in Southern Fulton County, Pennsylvania, are in mourning over the passing of “Mr. Hammond.” He taught generations of young people, and was Always a “Favorite Teacher.”

Those of Us who knew “Bill” on a more personal level loved Him as an intelligent/sensitive Man.

I, personally, will Greatly miss Him in my life.

Buck Valley and Excelsior will Never Be the Same, though Bill’s Spirit will reside there Forever!

Always,

John

I was very sadden to here of the passing of Mr. Hammond, my art teacher from grade school thru high school graduation. I will always remember him for his friendly smile, artistic creativity and dedication whether he was teaching a class or preparing the auditorium for a play or band performance. I learned a lot and enjoyed having him as a teacher. To me he was one of the best! My condolences to his family.

It was good to have known Mr. Hammond both as my art teacher and later as a co-worker. I appreciated his quiet, easy-going character and his smile of encouragement. I extend my sympathy to and prayers for the family at this time.

Mr. Hammond was my Art teacher back in the late sixties. He was probably just out of college. I will remember him for his quiet, yet creative ways. He always encouraged those of us who were not creative. He found a place where we could help, whether it be painting a set or making sounds for a play. I loved to hear him laugh. He was missed when he retired and will be missed now that he is creating for our great Creator. My sincere sympathy to his family. He was one of a kind.

We appreciated Bill as a quiet but very talented man who served as a Board member on the Fulton County Historical Society. He prepared the most memorable museum displays at the Fulton House for our annual Folk Festival. He was fantastic at providing little artistic touches which made the exhibits stand out. I enjoyed working with him and knowing him as a friend. We will miss him greatly. May God reward him with eternal peace.
