January 1, 1956 — June 4, 2024


Cecil Hammer, Jr., age 68, of Brenham and the husband of Lisa Hammer passed away on June 4, 2024 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

Cecil was born in Brenham, Texas on January 1, 1956 to Cecil and Florence Hammer (Malinowski).  He was a 1974 graduate of Brenham High School.  During his High School days, he worked at Brenham airport, Western Auto and Gibson’s.  He continued his career with Southwestern Bell in Brenham, starting as a Telephone Operator and transferring to be a Cable Splicer.  He retired from AT&T after 36 years.

Cecil met the love of his life on a blind date at the Angleton County Fair in September of 1977. They married on July 18, 1980 in Houston, Texas.

Cecil was a great man, husband, father and Papaw to Kinsley.  He loved spending time with his daughter, Staci, and his son, Kevin.  He enjoyed working on various projects.  You could find him most days at his place in the country, gardening, fixing cars, and watching the sunset with his wife.

His greatest joy was being a Papaw to his granddaughter, Kinsley.  He loved watching her play volleyball and never missed a game.  He loved his family and will be greatly missed.
