RIP Desmond Hammond

*Reading, PA (November 14, 2017)* – King’s Promotions is deeply saddened by
the passing of Desmond Hammond.

Hammond of Reading, Pennsylvania passed away on Monday morning at the age
of 35. He was at his home and surrounded by his family.

Hammond was the Director of Operations for King’s Promotions for the better
part of the last three years. He was the nephew of King’s Promotions CEO
Marshall Kauffman.

“This is such a sad day for my family and for everyone who knew Desmond,”
said Kauffman.

“Desmond was like a son to me. He is my sister’s son, and he is basically
the same age as my children so we are extremely close. Desmond came to
boxing just a few years ago and he picked up the business so fast. We have
run more shows than anybody in the country, and they all have come off so
smoothly. That was because of Desmond. He was on top of every detail,
which made the events go off without a hitch. But most of all he was very
selfless and caring. He was always there for someone in need. He was a
great young man, who was very smart, and he was always joking. It was such
an honor for me to have him on board with King’s Promotions. He was such a
special person who was loved and will be missed so much.”

Besides Kauffman and his family, Hammond is survived by his mother Sheri
Clark, sisters Lynchel Hammond and Raven Hammond, brother Steven Brandon,
his daughter Dayana, newborn son Donovan and his girlfriend Alisha.

The Viewing will be held next Monday, November 20th between 9 am and 11 am at
St. John Baptist Church, 436 South 7th Street, Reading, Pa.19602
