Timothy (Tim) Allan Hammonds, Sr., born on March 22, 1951 in Wilmington, NC, passed in the early morning hours of January 24, 2024 at Novant Health New Hanover Regional Hospital.
Tim was a dedicated truck driver who worked 29 years at FedEx Freight, having received an award for his 24th consecutive year of safe driving in 2023. In his time at FedEx Freight, Tim met many coworkers and customers who would develop into valued friends.
One of Tim’s favorite pastimes was buying and working on old cars, with his most recent project being a 1941 Chevrolet Special Deluxe. Through this hobby he met many people who also became lifelong friends.
However, more people knew Tim through his talent with a guitar. He was a self-taught musician, whose music entertained countless people over the past 40+ years. He was a member of many bands, but he found enjoyment in his later years playing with the band Change. As a member of Change, Tim traveled to many churches playing in praise of the Lord. Tim truly shined brightest with a guitar in his hand.
Tim’s memory lives on through his sons Timothy Allan Hammonds, Jr. and James Ryan Hammonds, his daughter Ronni Cuthrell, his brother James Walton Hammonds, Jr., his sister-in-law Susan Hammonds, and his grandchildren Nathan Hammonds, Presley Cuthrell, and Dawson Cuthrell.
As we mourn the loss of Tim, we are reminded by the impact he had on all the lives around him. His heart-warming smile, pride in his children and grandchildren, and his dedication to helping others live on forever in our hearts.
