January 7, 1969 - September 16, 2021

Gregory A. “Greg” Hamrick, age 52, of Bear, DE, passed away on Thursday, September 16, 2021.

He was born in 1969, in Elkins WV, son of the late Clinton E. Hamrick Sr, and Nancy C. (Baker) Hamrick.  Growing up, Greg developed a deep love of sports. He attended Tygart Valley High School where he was a multi-year letterman in football, baseball, and basketball. In 2004, Greg was inducted into the Randolph County West Virginia Hall of Fame. He attended several colleges to help satisfy his thirst for knowledge. Greg was well studied and could do anything. 

He continued to show his love of sports in so many ways. In addition to being a board member with Canal Little League, Greg was also a coach from 2002 – 2019. In 2009, he was the head coach for the NCC Football League, he coached for the Phantoms Baseball Team, the Delaware Rockets, and Cobra’s Softball- just to name a few.  During this time, Greg also became a member of the Amateur Baseball Umpire Association never missing an opportunity to umpire a game. He later took his love of coaching to Bear Babe Ruth in 2020. 

While Greg was employed at Amazon, he met the love of his life, his wife Dee. He then transitioned to Plant Engineer with Burris Logistics where he remained employed for the last 17 years. His favorite pastime was spending time with his family, grilling, using his smoker, watching the kids play sports, and supporting his favorite football team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

In addition to his father, he was preceded in death by his brother, Victor L. Hamrick. He is survived by his wife, Dee A. (Brooks) Hamrick; children, Kyle L. Allen (Danielle) of Newark, Ryan E.

    You were always a very good boss to me. Actually, you are the very best boss that I have ever had.
    You always treated me with respect and you also had my back.

  • Heartbroken!!! Seems like only yesterday. From our little league days all the way through. Greg batted first and me third. He would get on first, steal second, and I will hit him in. Fond memories on and off the field. Spent all our days together throughout our child hood. Life was one big ball game and hanging out having fun. Amazing gifted athlete but even better person filled with joy and fun. Charismatic with always a smile to share with everyone. Football – 33 tds in two seasons . Unbelievable ability to get in the end zone. Baseball — a standout from the time we were in little league . We shared a lot of time on that diamond together. Basketball- my point guard who hit 6 free throws down the stretch to put us in the State Tournament. I can never and will never talk about my childhood without talking about Greg. Brothers then and brothers forever. Loved him and will cherish our memories forever
