Obituary for Cornelius Hammond

Life Journey
Cornelius Lavern Hammond was born October 20, 1950 in Andrews, SC to parents Clifton and Clara Oates Hammond.  He was the youngest son of five brothers and eight sisters.
He departed this life on Wednesday, May 22, 2019.  At an early age Cornelius exhibited great talent in memorization of all facts.  He knew the names and birthdays of his siblings, their children, and the children’s children. He made sure that his nieces, nephews and their children, respectably called him by his proper name, “Uncle Buster.”
Cornelius graduated in 1968 from Blakely High School in Salters, SC.  Upon graduation, he left Andrews to work in the Job Core in Iowa, and later moved to Queens, New York.
He was a Sports enthusiast in basketball, football, wrestling, and martial arts.  Also, one of his favorite past-times was watching westerns.  He was well versed in local, national, and international political events.
Cornelius’ smile, compassion, sense of humor and alertness made him one of a kind.  His disposition was quite peaceful, and he was an amiable person.  Upon meeting new individuals, his favorite greeting was, “My name is Cornelius but, my friends call me “Buster.”
He attended the Andrews S.D.A. Church, and his favorite biblical passage was the 23rd Psalm.
Preceding him in death were his father, Clifton Hammond; mother, Clara M. Hammond; sisters, Louise McGahee and Clara Mae Anderson; brothers, Clifton Hammond, Jr., Clarence W. Hammond, and Jesse L. Hammond.
Cornelius was loved dearly and will be missed by his siblings, Dr. James Hammond (Carol), William Hammond, Aleese Grissett, Margaret Hammond, Mattie Durousseau (John) Connie Roberson (Roosevelt), Deloris Hammond and Belinda Kennedy; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, family and friends.
