James Herbert Hamrick Sr, age 80, passed away Friday March 19, 2021 at his home in Wilmington, Delaware with his family by his side.

Mr. Hamrick was a U.S. Navy veteran, having served as a Boatswain Mate Petty Officer Third Class from 1959-1963 onboard the USS William R. Rush DD714.

He spent most of his early career working as a meat packer and then as a maintenance and grounds keeper for Artist Jamie Wyeth of Chadds Ford, PA and other DuPont owned Estates.

His later career was spent working for 20 plus years as a maintenance supervisor at Rose Hill Community Center until his passing.

He was a husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He loved to work in his garden, travel, play shuffleboard and watch Western movies. He also loved Dallas Cowboys football, hunting and spending time with his family. He was a member of the VFW and American Legion Joseph B. Stahl Memorial Post 30 of New Castle, Delaware.

He is survived by his wife Rose of 49 years, two daughters Marla Ballard and spouse Tim of Fort Payne, AL, Diane Boone and spouse Christopher of New Holland, PA , two sons James H. Hamrick Jr. and spouse Pamela of Bear DE, David Hamrick and spouse Michelle of Northeast MD ; four sisters Dolly Everly and spouse Charles of Terra Alta, WV, Betty Broadwater of Louisa, VA, Linda Kope of Terra Alta, WV, and Rosalee Reeves of Rawlings, MD; two brothers, John Hamrick and spouse Vickie of Morgantown, WV and Al Hamrick and spouse Carol of Akron, OH; eight grandchildren, Julia, James III and Daniel Hamrick, Austin Tidwell, Carissa, Natalee and Finley Hamrick, and C.J. Boone, great-granddaughter Alaia, and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, infant sister Laura Jane Hamrick and his sister Gladys Sigley (March 19, 2010).

The family would like to send a special thank you to everyone at UPenn Oncology, Christiana Care Hospital, the VA medical center and countless doctors and medical staff for their special care.

To, Mrs. Hamrick, the Children and the entire family of “Mr. Jim, I extend my sincere and deepest condolences to “All of You”..
My heart was sadden when I heard of Mr. Jim’s passing. I met Mr. Jim in 2013, when I came to work in the Rose Hill Community Center. Mr. Jim would help me with every thing I needed done. Mr. Jim was a “JACK” of all trades.
He was such a nice person, I miss seeing him working & walking around the building. I know he will have his ladder, hammer, paint brush in hand, now working in “Heaven” for the “LORD”.. zzz Rest In Sweet Peace, Mr. Jim.
My Blessings & Peace to “All of You”
