Centennial Park, Arizona – Lorin Deloss Hammon, 31, passed away November 17, 2020. He was born June 7, 1989 in Colorado City, Arizona to Lorin and Martha Hammon.

Life sketch:

Deloss was born on Wednesday, June 7th, 1989. Contrary to popular belief, he was a tiny baby weighing only 5lbs 2oz. From the day he was born, his black hair and big brown inquisitive eyes were magnetic. He was a sensitive tender spirit who was quick to check on those in need. Deloss was active and highly involved in sports at an early age. Some of his favorite pastimes were spent playing, watching, and judging sports. He rarely missed a 3 pointer. Deloss attended The Colorado City Academy and graduated with class of 2007. After graduation he made the choice to serve a mission for his church from which he learned a lot. After his mission, Deloss moved to Salt Lake City and started a career in mortgage banking. This led him to explore many cities across the United States from New Jersey to Las Vegas, where he purchased his first house. During this time he made countless lifelong friends that became his second family. We have all created memories that we will come back to for many years to come. He spent six years in Las Vegas before being drawn back home where he spent the remainder of his time reconnecting with family and close friends.

He is survived by his parents, Lorin and Martha and his siblings Leslie, Kristene, Gaylene, Rose, Matthew, and Morgan.

Due to the current health crisis, a private viewing and funeral service will be held on Monday, November 23rd, 2020.

  1. Delo!! Some of my favorite memories of work are at Village Capital! I was privileged to know you and your family!! Thank you for everything!! <3

  2. When I was 17 years old, Deloss Hammon wrapped his arms around me and welcomed me to the fold. We had grown up in the same community together, and without a formal word spoken about it, he became my older brother. It was obvious to the people that met him that he was different. He grew up in a home of love, and kindness – Where “I love you” was daily spoken. He brought the heart of his family to the world on his sleeve and offered it to everyone freely. Deloss wasn’t someone that you casually talked to about work, or politics, or the daily goings of your life. He was someone you dumped your heart into, who would hold space for you while you experienced your grief, or joy, your love or even your excitement. He would provide depth and understanding to your feelings, as the best arm-chair psychologist there was. He wasn’t one sided however, and could always be casual, fun, and funny.
    Behind his eyes there was overwhelming empathy. Empathy that would literally break his heart for his neighbor, brother or friend. Deloss wasn’t the type to run numbers on his retirement fund, or skip a night out with friends to save money – He lived. He lived well, and he lived fully. And with that empathy burning like an ember in his deep brown eyes, he would echo the words “I love you” to everyone he would interact with – And looking back it seems, that deep down, maybe he suspected his life would end early, because he filled the hearts of everyone he interacted with as if he were to never see them again. He put in them a belief in themselves, an acceptance that they were enough, and a love that would roll over them like waves whenever they warmly recalled the interaction.

    I love Deloss, and will always remember him fondly. It brings me peace that, in death, his family can see the humble and touching life that he lived away from home, and the amazing impact he had on the world.

  3. I have such fond memories of Deloss- I knew him as a young boy, when he and his family lived with us for the summer in Salt Lake City; because his sister was born prematurely and had to be in the hospital up there for an extended length of time. Even at that very young age, Deloss was so controlled and mature. I didn’t know him as an adult; but, from all I’ve heard he was a dynamic man. His parents have been and are lifelong friends. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy,prayers, and love at this time. Love you forever; Deloss.

  4. Doss I am going to miss barbacoa, old mill, having laughs, my golf texts about I can still win, lebron / Jordan comparisons, and random tombstone texts. I was always the Doc Holiday friend to you. A lot of times I was called godfather and your second father. I always said you can be bigger than you can imagine. A gentile giant that was always kind especially to me, Eve, and Jaxon. I will always be waiting on the front nine at old mill. Love ya son.
