Stan, Thank you for being a great friend and mentor. I truly miss you! Your kindness and inspiration altered the course of my life in such an amazing way. If not for you, I would have never fully pursued my desired career path. Your encouraging me to do that, of course, led me to meeting my wonderful wife and her and I having our lovely children. I can never fully put into words the positive impact you’ve had on my life, but I cannot thank you enough. Rest In Peace my friend.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Dr Hammons for at least 30 years and also knew his wife Libby as I have worked in the office that they were patients. I must say I have never met a more caring sincere person than Dr Hammons. He was always so pleasant and always had a smile on his face. He will always stay in my heart as one of my favorite patients Regina Tanner
It was a pleasure to have been a friend of Stan’s and I always will be. He was not only highly intelligent man, he was also a good friend and mentor. He will be missed by many because of the valuable gem that he was/is.
