James Clifton Hammons
James Clifton Hammons Sr. was born on Nov. 13, 1943. He passed away suddenly on Friday, Nov. 19, 2010.
James was born in Jacobia, Texas, to Jessie Dunn George and Aubrey Hammons. Both preceded him in death.
Heartbroken by his passing is his wife of 47 years, Judy Smith Hammons. He is also survived and mourned by two wonderful children and their spouses, Kristy Ballew and husband Mike and James Hammons Jr. and wife Sarah. He also left behind all too soon his four precious grandsons, Ethan and Dylan Hammons and Casey and Colt Ballew. James is also survived by his brother, Walter Hammons and wife Patsy; his sister, Leota Scheuren; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and a host of faithful friends.
James graduated from Harlandale High School in 1961 and began his career with City Public Service, retiring with 37 years’ service. Upon retiring in 1999, he and Judy enjoyed traveling with good friends and spending special times fishing and relaxing at their coast house in Rockport. Best of all was the time he spent with his four grandsons.
James was a true University of Texas Longhorn and Dallas Cowboys fan. He loved a good time and never met a stranger. His sharp wit, humor, and teasing will always be missed by those who love him most. He walked through life’s challenges with perseverance, compassion, and dauntless courage. The void he leaves behind will never be filled.
Honoring James as his pallbearers are Bobby Hammons, David Hammons, Kenneth Martin, Stan Stautzenberger, Will Waclawczyk, and Max Voigt.
A visitation was held on Tuesday, Nov. 23, from 5-8 p.m. in the Sunset Funeral Home Chapel.
Funeral services will be held on Wednesday at 3 p.m. in the funeral home chapel.
Interment will follow in the Sunset Memorial Park in San Antonio.
