May 13, 2005 - July 24, 2022
Hunter Blake Hammond, age 17, of Allen, Kentucky, passed away Sunday, July 24, 2022 at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. He was born there on May 13, 2005, the "miracle baby" son of Breck and Heather Wallen Hammond. Because of congenital health issues, doctors did not expect Hunter to live but he proved them wrong over and over again. He enjoyed a full and joyful life, winning the hearts of everyone who knew him regardless of age or circumstance. He was kind, thoughtful and a pleasure to be around. He had awesome dance moves, won friendly competitions and was crowned "king" of his 8th grade prom. He loved to break all the "trach rules" by swimming, boating on the lake, and especially loved riding roller coasters at Dollywood. He was so proud of getting his driver's license and showing off his new FJ Cruiser. He was a member of Calvary Baptist Church and would have been a senior at Betsy Layne High School this fall.
In addition to his parents, Hunter is survived by three brothers, Byron, Kevin and Ethan; his grandparents, Ronnie and Susan Wallen, Mike (Joan) Hammond, Benie Lynn Hammond and Arnold Wheeler all of Stanville, Kentucky. Survivors also include his great-grandmothers Betty Porter of Pikeville and Peggy Wallen of Stanville, and his great-grandfather Ben Fannin of Knoxville, Tennessee. He was dearly loved by aunts, uncles, cousins, his church family and countless friends.
Visitation will begin at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, July 27 at Calvary Baptist Church of Betsy Layne. Funeral services will be at 1:00 pm on Thursday, July 28 at the church. Burial will follow at the Family Cemetery on Porter Hill in Stanville.
