Obituary for Albert Harley Hamrick

Albert Harley Hamrick, age 76, passed away on April 12, 2019. Albert was born on June 24, 1942 to Callie Bell (née Lancaster) and Edward William Hamrick. In 1961 he married Elizabeth Ridings, to whom he was married for 57 years.

Albert trained as a barber at Gainesville Barber School and graduated in 1961. In 1966 he began working at Palace Barber Shop, which he purchased in 1968. He proudly served his customers and friends at Palace for over 52 years.

Albert was a member at First Baptist Church of Jasper, where he served as a deacon since 2011. He took joy in greeting church attendees each Sunday, particularly in providing suckers to the children. In fact, at church he became known as “the sucker man.”

More than anything, Albert loved and was devoted to his family. He is survived by his wife Elizabeth; his daughters Lynn (Joe) Thompson and Kelly (Bill) Eubanks; his grandchildren Katie (Matthew) Grayson, Will Eubanks, Lucy Thompson, Joseph Thompson, and John Thompson; his great-grandchildren Teddy Grayson and Albert “Bertie” Grayson; and a large, loving extended family.

He was preceded in death by his parents Callie Bell and Edward William Hamrick and his sister Clara Hamrick.

In lieu of flowers, Albert requested that donations in his name be made to the First Baptist Church Preschool and Kindergarten to support scholarships for children.

The family will receive friends on April 15, 2019 at First Baptist Church of Jasper for visitation at 12:30 p.m. followed by a funeral service at 3:00 p.m.
