Obituary

John Hamm, 64, lifelong resident of Plainville, died unexpectedly at his home on Tuesday, December 14, 2021.

Born on October 24, 1957, he was one of three children to Sylvia (Tkacz) Hamm and the late Frank Hamm.  Raised and educated in Plainville, he was a 1976 graduate of Plainville High School with a passion for machines of all kinds from a young age.  An independent contractor who had his own company, Main Line Construction until 2010, John was also a talented and reliable sub-contractor for many cable companies. Most recently he worked for Capital Cable, and had endless stories of his days as a lineman.  From large trucks and other vehicles, to small solar lights and batteries, John mastered the art of tinkering, and found satisfaction in disassembling and rebuilding just about anything in sight.  Plainville’s own “Dr. Doolittle”, animals were known to flock to his yard at the sound of his whistle, where they could find snacks and companionship.  John was true New Englander, who embraced nature’s beauty, fall fairs, scenic drives and had a special place in his heart for Martha’s Vineyard.  Gone but not forgotten, he will be remembered for his love for wildlife, the outdoors, cats, and his sense of humor that everyone could appreciate.

In addition to his mother, Sylvia, he leaves his fiancée and best friend, Anita Butler, and her daughter Leanne; his brother Alan Hamm and his wife, Kathleen; his nephew Frank and niece Cindy; and many cousins.  He was predeceased by his sister Cathy.

In lieu of flowers, John may be remembered with contributions to an organization that will benefit animals.

Family and friends may gather (jeans and flannels are encouraged!) on Tuesday from 6-7 p.m. at Plainville Funeral Home, 81 Broad St, Plainville.  Words of remembrance will be shared at 7 p.m.   For online expressions of sympathy, please visit www.PlainvilleFuneralHome.com
