Obituary

Dennis Dean Hamma, 66, of Nauvoo, Illinois, passed away on Wednesday, June 17, 2020, at OSF Richard L. Owens Hospice Home in Peoria, IL.

Dennis was born on June 24, 1953, in Keokuk, Iowa, the son of David Hamma and Cordelia “Gee Gee” Wood. He graduated from Nauvoo-Colusa High School in 1971, later attending Monmouth College. Dennis was united in marriage to Jane Knowles on July 20, 1973, at SS Peter & Paul Catholic Church in Nauvoo.

A long time member of SS Peter and Paul Catholic Church and Knights of Columbus in Nauvoo, Dennis started his career in the Inventory Control Dept at the Sheaffer Pen Company in Fort Madison, IA.  He was later employed at Sioux Tools (Snap-on) in Sioux City, IA, before finishing his last five years of employment at the Georgia Detention Center, Blairsville, GA, as a Corrections Officer. When he wasn’t working, you would usually find Dennis engaging in his favorite activity, golfing. He loved being outside, and enjoyed mowing his yard, which overlooked the Mississippi River. Dennis always felt at peace in the great outdoors.

Dennis is survived by his wife Jane Hamma of Nauvoo; two sons: Timothy (Valerie) Hamma of Warsaw and Justin (Patricia) Hamma of Hamilton; two grandchildren: Abbey and Natalie Hamma of Warsaw; two brothers: Mike Hamma of Delavan, IL;  Wally (Cindi) Hamma of Nauvoo and many nieces and nephews.

Dennis was preceded in death by his parents, his sister Tawnya (Doug) Ammer, and his brother Timothy Blaine Hamma.
