ELLERY LAWRENCE HAMMOND
March 19, 1938 - November 11, 2019

It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of our father Ellery Lawrence Hammond, aged 81, of Carberry, MB. Ellery passed away on November 11, 2019 at the Glenboro Hospital following a brief illness.
He was predeceased by his wife, Gladys (nee Patterson), in March 1997.
He is survived by daughter Susan and son-in-law Ron Dawson, grandchildren, Chazz and Quinn; his son Darryl and daughter-in-law Marissa, as well as his brother Glen Hammond.
Ellery was the second of two sons born to Lawrence and Laura Hammond (nee Harmon) and was raised on their farm near Ninga, MB. He gained an appreciation of farming and all things agricultural during these years. He met Gladys during their teen years and they married in 1961. The majority of his career was spent as a grain buyer with United Grain Growers in the communities of Swan Lake, Deepdale, Rathwell, Carberry, Winnipeg and Roblin; they made many lifelong friends along the way.
Following his retirement, Ellery and Gladys remained in their home in Carberry. Ellery's favourite hobby became restoring vintage Minneapolis Moline tractors, the brand his family owned in his younger days. He enjoyed showing the restored tractors at various small town parades and fairs. He also enjoyed curling and baseball in his younger years, and watched both religiously in his later years. He was an especially big fan of the Blue Jays. We all knew to check the game schedule before calling during baseball season. Ellery was a member of the Carberry Lions Club for many years and enjoyed helping the community. A special shout out to his daily coffee buddies.
His family wishes to express their appreciation to the staff at Carberry and Glenboro Hospitals for their care of Ellery during his stay.
A funeral service has taken place in Carberry, and he has been placed to rest in Boissevain Cemetery, next to Gladys, and surrounded by many generations of both their families.
