Gary A. Hammond, 68, Mosinee, died Wednesday, Feb. 9, 2022, at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.
He was born Jan. 28, 1954, the son of Howard and Lula (Travers) Hammond. He married Donna Gardner on April 30, 1988, in Neva, WI. She survives.
Gary was a White Lake High School graduate, who then went on to earn his Electronics Associates Degree in 1983, from NTC Wausau. Gary worked at Stern Electronics in Antigo, and after that he worked at SNE Enterprises until his retirement. When not at work, he could be found out on the water wetting lines with family and friends. Gary’s favorite pastime was spending time with his family, and the thing that brought him the most joy and pride was being a full time Grandpa.
