Today's Featured Biography

 

 
David Hamrick


June 1965 and "now what"?? . .and where were we all going and what were we all going to do with our lives now. We all thought we wanted out of school and Dumas as young 18 year olds, but the truth be known later in our lives, I loved all of my time growing up in Dumas from grade school through Jr. High and then High School. What a youth most of us had and how enjoyable and simple it really was compared to the next 45 years.
I worked the summers at the Smelter going to West Texas State, as it was called back then. Me and my bud, Clyde Gregory, put some time in on the furnace and other parts of that big plant. My Dad worked there for 30 years so it wasn't easy to "gold-brick" during work time. To pay for my college fun money (beer and girls) I worked on week-ends also at the smelter and came back to Canyon on Sunday night. Had a great time at college, so much so, that in the Summer of 1968 I got my draft notice to report to Fort Bliss in El Paso in early October. Another "bud", Harold Bradley, was there at the Basic Training area I was assigned to impersonating a drill sargeant with his Smokey the Bear hat on . .HA!!! I also got married to my high school and college sweetie, Diane Bagwell, in November of '68 during basic training and we moved back to El Paso as a married couple. When I went overseas in 1969 she moved back to Dumas and lived with her parents with our daughter.

October 1971 came none to soon and after 3 years in the Army, 14 months overseas, working in Hawk Missile Units (Air Defense) I came back to Amarillo to finish a Marketing degree at W.T. and decide what I wanted to do with my life. In 1973 I entered the life insurance business with Equitable Life of New York and was there for 23 years, 17 years as a manager, selling, hiring, and training agents. In 1980 my son, Joe David, was born and it just proves that having kids 12 years apart might keep you young??? (jury still out on that one). In 1996 I contracted with American National Insurance and for the last 14 years have done the same thing as the prior 23 years, but made one last change as of January of 2011 . .am now affliated with Del Mar Group (DMG) out of Denver, Colorado and still do the same thing as the prior 37 years; work with people in insurance and financial planning. I am self employed and broker with several companies in the products and financial vehicles I sell. Still love the Panhandle and still love working and helping people and seeing clients (most are long-time good friends), and playing golf 2 or 3 days a week and being around crazy golfers. . . HA!!!

We have lived in Amarillo ever since getting out of the service in 1971. Diane and I have been married for 47 years this year and have lost all of our parents, mine both died in 2005 and her Mom died in November 2009 (her Dad, Joe, died in 1980). Our daughter, Stephanie, has 2 step-children. Her husband, Duke Ward, is a Dumas boy so we are keeping it all in the Panhandle. Our son is in the plumbing business down in the Houston area. Looking forward to seeing all those that show up at the 50th Reunion and being sure that we all are still breathing and on the top side of the grass!!
