Billy Derral Hamman was born Tuesday, Jan. 26, 1943 in Rush Springs, to John and Juanita Hamman. He passed away Wednesday, Sept. 29, 2010. He grew up in Marlow and graduated from Marlow High School in 1961. Out of high school he worked derricks in the oil field. He received his welding license and was a member of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry for 45 years. During this time he traveled and worked all over the United States. Billy lived life to the fullest. He worked hard, he played hard, and he always pushed himself hard. Some folks called him “Wild Bill.”
In the early ‘60s Billy married Donna Rutledge. They were married for 15 years and had three children, Daryl, Stephanie, and Donnie Dewayne Hamman and three grandsons, Jerry, Christopher, and River Deylan Hamman.
Billy was preceded in death by his parents, his eldest son Daryl, and his brother and sister-in-law Tommy and Sharon Hamman.
Billy had been with his family in Tulsa these last seven months recuperating. Recently he had returned home to his beloved Marlow and his much loved dog, Cuddles.
Billy leaves behind Donna, his son and daughter, his three grandsons, his sister and her husband, Laquetta and Emery Garland, two nephews, Bruce and Vance Garland and their families of Campbell, Calif., two nieces, Monica Massie and children of Duncan, and Misty Hamman and family of Oklahoma City, two step-sons, Terry McConnell and family of Marlow, and Jody Mitchell and family of Arkansas, and many dear, long time friends.
The family wishes to take this time to thank all who have been of help and support during his recent illness.
Billy leaves the legacy of being an “overcomer.” Throughout his lifetime he faced many trials and challenges and he never gave up. He will be dearly missed.
Pallbearers will be Lemar Howell, DeArmon George, Keith Rutledge, Tommy Gardner, Verl Palmer, and Jason Cummings.
