Hampton C. Vestal was my grandfather. He was the son of Henry Clay Vestal and Louisa Mae Fox Vetal.
"Big Hamp" was a mechanic for Ford in Thomasville, NC. He was a gentle man that never raised his voice.
He died 11 days after my father's 13th birthday of a stroke. He left behind a wife, Hazel Marie Swicegood Vestal, 2 sons, Hampton Cater Vestal, Jr., Joseph Richard Vestal and daughter Joyce Ann Vestal. All now deceased.
