Edson “Danny” Hammel
Edson “Danny” Hammel, age 71, gave up his spirit to his Lord and Savior on July 3, 2022. He was born in Beaumont, Texas on August 23,1950.
He was so lovingly cared for by his niece Teresa and her husband Elgin Lee.
Danny loved going to the beach on Bolivar peninsula, watching old westerns with a few of his good friends, collecting miniature cars and just about anything he thought was worth collecting. He loved the challenge of working on something that had been discarded or that he picked up from garage sales and thought he could repair. Danny had an old pick-up truck with over 200,000 miles on it that he loved tinkering with.
He had a very engaging personality, always wanting to help those who were down on their luck. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
He is survived by his sister Ginger Funk, brother Tony Lisotta, several nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews. Also, his dog Ginger, whom he loved so much and never left his side.
