Charles David Hammock was born August 21, 1928 in Soper, Oklahoma, to Wylie and Stella (Holt) Hammock. David was a hard-working man who lived all his life in the Soper community and who thoroughly loved and enjoyed his family, especially the grandchildren. He was an excellent piano player that could play anything by ear, jamming with a neighborhood country music band. In the early days when quail was plentiful, he was an avid bird hunter. David worked over 45 years with a cattle ranch operation which has been a legacy to his family. He served as a dedicated Social Studies teacher and basketball coach for 32 years with Soper and Grant Schools, giving 16 years to each.
