Cornelius Lavern Hammond

October 20, 1950 ~ May 22, 2019 (age 68)


South Carolina -  Cornelius Lavern Hammond was born in October 20, 1950, in Andrews, South Carolina.  It was very early on Wednesday morning, May 22, 2019 when Cornelius departed this world.  His parents, Clifton Hammond and Clara Oates Hammond preceded him in death.  He proudly completed his high school education which allowed him to pursue additional vocational training and job opportunities in the Job Corp in Iowa. Later, he moved to Queens, New York where he garnered an honest work ethic.  Cornelius returned to Andrews, South Carolina, where he displayed his kind and humorous ways.  He attended the Andrews Seventh Day Adventist Church and his favorite biblical text was Psalm 23.  He loved his family dearly and will be missed by all who knew him affectionately as "Buster".
