Obituary |


Johnny Henry Hampton passed away on Oct. 13, 2006 at the Cottonwood Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah of leukemia.

John, or Piggy as he liked to be called, was a wonderful and devoted husband, father, brother and son. He made a deep impression on everyone with his smile and willingness to do whatever anyone needed done and always put his family and friends before himself. He prided himself on his work ethics, often staying as long as possible to get a job done. He made a living for himself and family as a land surveyor, which he loved for the change of scenery and because it let him be outdoors.

He loved being outdoors camping, hiking, boating and fishing. He wanted to instill the love he had for nature in his children, taking them and his wife with him whenever possible. He was so laid back and easy to get along with, always the life of the party. He will be missed by all, no matter how brief the encounter.

John is survived by his wife Jamy; two children: Jonathan Tyler and Lily Anne; his parents: Steve and Robin Hampton, and Margaret and Vince Dooley; seven brothers and five sisters; six grandparents and numerous other relations.

Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2006, at 2 p.m. at the Francis Ward. Visitation will be held 12:45 to 1:45 p.m. prior to services at the church. Interment will follow in the Francis Cemetery.

A memorial fund has been set up for Johnny’s children at any Wells Fargo Branch in Jamy Hampton’s name.
