Menno John Hamm, born August 4th 1963, passed away suddenly in his home on August 10th 2023 surrounded by his family. He was a beautiful loving Son, Brother, Husband and Father that left us far too soon.
Menno is survived by his Mother Anne, Sisters Deb (Harv), Jane (John), his Wife Pam of 40 years, and Children Tyler (Laura), Nikk and Jessi (Chris). His presence will also forever be missed by his beloved friend Wendy (Brad) and countless others, Aunties, Nieces, Nephews, cousins, and extra kids he gained from his children’s friends and loved ones. Just to name a few, Beau, Shayse, Vanessa, Keeton, and Taylor. He touched the lives of so many; every single person that had the pleasure of knowing and loving Menno are mourning this terrible loss.
Menno was the funniest, most selfless, smart, loving, kind and caring person that brought light to everyone’s lives. He taught his kids everything they needed and gave them endless amounts of love. You could see in his beautiful green eyes and smile how much love he had to give. You’d rarely see him without that handsome smile on his face.
He went through what seemed to be a hundred lifetimes in his time on this earth. The stories he told were a beautiful sentiment to the amazing life he lived. He was a fishing guide, a nurse’s aide at the Red Lake Hospital, a Parts Manager at Fort Ignition/Napa Auto Parts, a wheelchair sales and equipment specialist at Shoppers Home Health care and Motion Specialties. Menno worked tirelessly in his job, dedicating so much of his time and energy to the Kenora and Red Lake Hospital, long-term care homes and people with disabilities in their homes. His hard work, love and dedication will forever be remembered and honoured.
Menno also got to live out a lot of his dreams and passions in his time with us. He took pride in his love for Harleys, music and cooking the greatest food we ever ate in the home he made. Many days of fishing and shore lunches with his family, motorcycle trips with his Wife, visiting his beautiful Mother in Winkler, playing bass in his sons’ band, and living through every day laughing and smiling with his family and loved ones.
While we will forever wish that he could have stayed with us longer, we will take comfort in the fact that his heart was so full of love for all of us, and that he was so proud and happy with what he got to do. 60 years of love. He will live forever in our hearts and our laughter. In the words of his son Nikk, God only picks the most beautiful flowers- and he was a rose. Menno is now reunited with his Father John, his best friend Kim Peters and all the rest of his loved ones that have passed. Menno, we will love and miss you forever.
