David Wayne Hammers
Sept 22, 1965 - Aug 5, 2005

Born in Fairdale, Kentucky
Living his adult life in Okolona, Kentucky

Dave became a Amateur Radio Operator when he was 15
His first call was KA4VPT and later became N4PBV.
At 13 started his electronics schooling and finished with 1340 hours
Our first computer was a "4K Radio Shack Color Computer"
and he was hooked. He stacked chips to make it 16K WOW!
Keeping his interest in computers, He later went on to become
a Technician and Computer Consultant for the University Of Louisville
in Louisville, Kentucky. A job he dearly loved, he always said
"No One Should Be Paid For Having This Much Fun".
He always got a kick out of helping people with their computer Woes.

Dave was also a very accomplished Locksmith.
He started this by going with me on service
calls, when he was about 10 years old.
After High School (DeSales), he went to work for Schiller Hardware
as a Locksmith and later to the University Of Louisville as
a Locksmith for about 13 yrs. And was President
of The Central States Locksmith Association for I think 2 yrs.
 Then transferred to the
Arts and Sciences Dept. as Computer Consultant.
For a total of over 20 years at U of L

Four close friends in his life were: Stew Haag W4MO,
Kenny Hobbs, Perry Finley, and
Cheryl Capito, his fiancťe at the time of his passing.
The love of his life who he met while at U of L.

When he would say "I got to get away for a little while".
I would know, he's coming to Florida to get some of Angelo's Garlic Knots
and some of Patricia's, (his Step-Mom), baby back ribs.
The hard thing was keeping him away from my computer, he thought
it needed updating or there was this neat little program I needed.
Of course he was right, as always!

And with 3 or 4 phone calls a day, he love his internet phone,
 to me and our good friend Stew Haag W4MO, the phone now seems so quiet.

Eulogy  Given by his fiancťe Cheryl Capito

David.Ö

We find comfort in knowing that David is now with his sister Stacey that passed away in December 04. David and Stacey are probably settling their differences and will take care of each other for eternal life. Donít be afraid if we have some great thunderstorms in the near future. Itís probably just David and Stacey being brother and sister.

David touched many lives and we will truly miss him.  


 

words to  "I Can See Clearly Now"
 
I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
Itís gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.
Itís gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.
 
 
Oh yes I can make it now, the pain is gone
All of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is the rainbow Iíve been prayiní for
Itís gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.
 
Look all around, thereís nothiní but blue skies
Look straight ahead, thereís nothiní but blue skies
 
I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Here is the rainbow Iíve been prayiní for
Itís gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.
Itís gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.
bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.
Itís gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.
Itís gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.
