Dr. Jerry Lehman Hammon age 89, of Clayton, Ohio, passed away on Friday, October 18, 2013. He was born in Logan, Ohio to Claude Ambrose and Gladys Faye (Lehman) Hammon. He graduated from Logan High School in 1942, Miami University in 1947 and The Ohio State University College of Medicine in 1952. He proudly served on a destroyer escort in the U.S. Navy during World War II. He practiced family medicine in West Milton, Ohio for 19 years. Afterwards, he joined the Dayton VA Medical Center as a staff physician and occasional acting chief of staff.

As an active member of the Friends of Milton Union Public Library, he was part of a group that helped locate its first permanent home in 1979.
