Obituary of Daniel Hammond


Daniel “Bone” Hammond, 53, of Homer NY, passed away with family by his side December 29, 2023 at University Hospital, Syracuse NY, after a long and courageous battle with cancer.


Bone was a lifetime resident of the area, graduating from Homer High School in 1988. He was proprietor of DJ Hammond Construction Co. for many years. His family and friends will remember his generosity of donating his time and talents for whatever was needed such as household improvements or with the Homer American Legion. When he wasn’t helping others or working, he could be found on the golf course, one of his greatest joys. He also enjoyed watching golf, football, and NASCAR. But again his true joy was being with family and friends and lending a helping hand to whoever needed him.

He is survived by his wife of thirty one years Tamara Hammond, his daughter Jordan Hammond, his father John Hammond, his siblings Tammy (Brian) Weegan, John Hammond, Amy (Matt) Strauf, and Brian Hammond, his sister in law Tina (Adam) Brickey, many nieces and nephews.

Bone was predeceased by his mother Sylvia J. Hammond.

Calling hours will be held Friday January 5, 3-6 pm at the Wright-Beard Funeral home inc., 9 Lincoln Ave., Cortland NY, 13045.

A celebration of Bone’s Life will be held Saturday January 6, 12-4 pm at the Homer American Legion, Main St., Homer NY.

Contributions may be made to the Country Acres Pet Services, 5852 W Scott Rd., Homer NY, 13077
