Larry Dale Hamlett entered his heavenly home August 11, 2019 after a two year battle with lung cancer. His wife Sherri, daughter Mia, family friends Alicia Anderson, Joann McCasland and Still Waters Hospice Nurse Jason Murrell were at his side. Larry was born September 23, 1941 in Portales, New Mexico. He graduated Kirkland High School in 1961. In 1963 he was drafted into the army. After boot camp he came home to marry Sherri Fay Turney before leaving to fight in Vietnam. He returned from Vietnam 13 months after serving this great country. Larry was a Jack of All Trades. He had many skills and talents and loved to woodwork. He finished his last project for Riley, his great grandbaby, just weeks before his death. Larry is survived by his wife and daughter, son-in-law Bo Sims, granddaughter Andee (Tim) Spitzke, grandson Corey (Devan) Archuleta, great granddaughter Riley Spitzke, baby to be Spitzke, great step grandson Morgan King, two brothers, two sisters, numerous nieces and nephews. Thank you to Dr Kuban and staff, Interim Hospice (Lori, Belinda, Denise, Shena, Dina) Still Waters Staffing and Granbury Drug for their care and compassion through this journey.

NOT JUST ANY DAD

A Dad so heroic he received a medal of commendation

A Dad with a will so strong, not to be touched by the sexual

revolution.

A Dad so stable not to want to be a hippie like all the rest.

A Dad with a heart so big it goes beyond saving the whales, its helping

to save souls.

A Dad so proud to walk down the isle and lovingly give his

daughters away.

A Dad so wonderful, not just any dad, this dad is my dad.
