Harry Reynolds Hambrick Jr.

THOMASVILLE — Services for Harry Reynolds Hambrick Jr., 86  Thomasville, are at 2 p.m. Friday May 16, 2014, at Whiddon-Shiver Funeral Home Chapel. Mr. Hambrick died Tuesday, May 13, 2014, at Archbold Medical Center. A Columbia County native, he was born Sept. 20, 1927, a son of the late Harry Hambrick and the late Florence McBurney Hambrick. He was married to Letitia Sarah Hambrick, who died April 27, 2009. Owner of Hambrick Electric Co., he was a member of Thomasville First United Methodist Church. He grew up in Sikeston, Mo. His father, Harry Sr., and brother, Robert, were owners of Hambrick Electric Co. for more than 20 years. Work for Mr. Hambrick was a very important part of his life to support his family. He was stern and wanted the best for his children even though his children didn’t understand how life was to make something of themselves. He loved everyone and enjoyed wearing his L.L. Bean hat and loved his three favorite dogs named Sally. They moved to Florida for a short period and built a small orange grove. From there they moved to Moultrie, and he bought a pecan grove in Pelham. He enjoyed riding around and looking at what he built up. It was his life’s dream that one day his children would keep the grove up. He was kind, empathetic and thoughtful to others. He was a Mason for 75 years. He enjoyed living at Southern Pines until it was time for him to go home. He is survived by a son, Harry R. Hambrick III (Betty), Belgrade, Maine; daughter, Susan K. Morris, Thomasville; granddaughter, Stephanie Gilmore (Hugh), Cape Girardeau, Mo.; brother, Robert Lee Hambrick, Thomasville; grandsons, Joshua Hambrick (Mihaela), Jon Hambrick (Chrissie), both of Maine; great-grandchildren, Luke Reynold Gilmore, Sophie Kate Gilmore, Madison Hambrick, McKenzie Hambrick, Molly Hambrick; and a number of nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by sisters, Virginia Ruth Dozier, Mattie Boyd Hambrick. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the charity of your choice. — Whiddon-Shiver Funeral Home
