Founding Director of St. Aug's Band Dies.

I was saddened to hear about the passing of Mr. Hampton, founding director of St. Aug's Marching 100 Band. Even though I didnt attend St. Aug [duh], i know a lot of people who did and can say how much he has touched their lives, especially band members. In high school, I heard a lot about him. Everything was "Mr. Hamp this," "Mr. Hamp that," or "Mr. Hamp don't play!" LOL.

Mr. Hampton died at the age of 81.

His family and all of my pk friends who are affected by this occurrence are in my prayers. Love you, booboo!!
