Clifford Leon Hamm, 84, of Greenfield, IN, passed away on May 5, 2022.
He was known as Paps to all the grandchildren.
Clifford was born in Wise County to James Sylvan Hamm and Fonda Alene Robinette on July 20, 1937. He married LaFaye Sue Manis on September 29, 1960 in Marion County, IN.
He worked as a mechanic for International Harvester (Navistar) for 32 years. He raced in the ARCA circuit in the 1960’s and 70’s and loved it. He was an avid gardener and a golfer for many years, having his own greenhouse and large garden. He could figure out and repair anything and we all called it Pap-rigged.
