Walter Kenneth Hamrick

August 18, 1931 — November 23, 2021

On November 23, 2021, Walter “Kenneth” Hamrick went to be with Jesus, after battling heart and kidney failure. His wife of seventy one years, Doris, was by his side.

He was born August 18, 1931, in Rutherford County, NC and served his country in the Korean War. After being wounded on Pork Chop Hill, Kenneth promised the Lord he would serve him the rest of his life. As a result of being wounded, he received a Purple Heart.

In 1964, he moved his family to reside in Mint Hill, NC. He attended Central Piedmont Community College, where he learned the trade of welding and, in 1992, retired from Siemens, Inc. Kenneth served in his church as a deacon and Sunday school teacher. His passion was spending time in God’s word. He also enjoyed gardening and small engine repair.

Kenneth was preceded in death by his parents, Walter Frank and Ethel Harris Hamrick; brothers, Clark and Beauford Hamrick; sisters, Lillian Summer and Mary Frances Potter; and by his granddaughter, Kimberly Small.

He is survived by his wife, Doris Melton Hamrick; daughters, Kathy Frederick ( Don ) and Sandra Moss ( Curtis ); 5 grandchildren, Wayne, Jr., Kenny and Michael Small, Joshua Moss ( Monica ), Jennifer Haas ( Josh ); 7 great-grandchildren, Marshall Small, Felix Shrader, Raiden Palmer, Layla Haas, and Ashton Addison and Hudson Moss; and 2 sisters, Yvonne Amos and Diane Baucom.
