Frederick ‘Fred’ Hammann, 43, of New Ipswich, NH, died on Wednesday, July 23, 2014 as a result from injuries he sustained in a motorcycle accident.
Fred was born on January 13, 1971 in Amityville, NY, son of Fred and Carol (Kaufmann) Hammann. He graduated from Keene High School and entered the U.S. Navy in 1990. Fred was a Gulf War Veteran and had also served in the Philippines and in Japan.
